Fedora 29 : Thonny editor for python.

This Python IDE for beginners named Thonny is a simple editor with Python 3.7 built in.
The official webpage can be found here and the GitHub project page is this.
The development team is from the University of Tartu, Estonia with the help from the open-source community. Thonny grew up in University of Tartu (https://www.ut.ee), Institute of Computer Science (https://www.cs.ut.ee).
I test it today with Fedora 29 and works well.
Let's start with the first step:
[mythcat@desk ~]$ pip3 install thonny --user
