Getting Candy


git clone git://


Candy suggesting a possible replacement to fix an IndentionError exception

The Candy editor will attempt to provide real time assistance as code is written.


Assignments will be presented as a set of individual steps that the user must complete. Assignment completion will be based on a flexible system of code analysis. This system is currently implemented using python's abstract syntax tree functionality.


Eventually, Candy will explore possibilities for localizing the code writing and analysis.
