How to import python 3.7 into Processing

I think I’m using python 2 for my current Processing app on my Mac.
I have been trying to import python 3.7 but I couldn’t find out how to do it.
I would greatly appreciate if someone could help me. Thank you!

Could anyone please help me?..

Welcome! You’ve installed Python mode but you still need to select it from the drop-down menu.

  1. Install (done)

  2. Select Python mode

  3. Check that it’s activated (top right)

  4. Profit

Check out the tutorials for more information.

One tidbit about Python mode is that it’s actually based on an implementation of the Python 2 language called Jython.


The Python mode that runs in PDE must be 2.7. It cannot run 3.x due to limitations in its interpreter, Jython.

If you want a Processing-like experience with full Python 3.x compatability outside PDE, try using p5py:

Note that it does not run on JVM, so it is not compatible with the Java mode library ecosystem.
