All you really need is a simple text editor (i.e., plain text).
Not sure what OS you are using. In Linux you can use something like vim,
emacs or kate, any of which will highlight python commands, which can be
helpful, and some help with lining up indentations is also of some use
-- Python is picky about having indentations line up properly.
For those used to word processors, vim and emacs may be a bit geeky,
since there are various commands you need to learn, though the
information is easily available online.
In Windows, you would probably want to find something out there, since
Notepad is very simple. Both vim and emacs are available free for Windows.
