Our local school is running OpenSUSE Leap 15.1 KDE on all its desktop clients. The math and physics teacher would like to use Thonny, a beginner-friendly Python IDE for beginners. I found no package for Thonny in the official repositories, and the site only sports very outdated packages for OpenSUSE.
Any suggestions on how to get Thonny on our OpenSUSE clients without jumping through burning loops?
As much as I’d like to go with binary packages from a repository (thanks for that), I have to consider availability on future version of Leap. In the meantime, since we only have a handful of Thonny users in our school (a dozen or so), I went for the official installer which installs everything under ~/apps/thonny and installs a desktop shortcut for it. Since we use central authentication, every student only has to install it once in his home directory and then it stays available in his session on every computer in the school.
