Making 2D Minecraft With Python: Part One

In this we will be doing the basic movements of the turtle. So first we will do all the imports and starting up stuff like Screen, Turtle, shape, and other stuff. So start by putting this into your code:

import turtle
mover = turtle.Turtle()
listenner = turtle.Screen()
mover.goto(-250, 0)

Now we’re going to check if the Up button is pushed (using the onkey function so we don’t have to push enter!). So type this in to your code:

while True:
 def forward():
 listenner.onkey(forward, "Up")

Now we can do backwards left and right!

 def backward():
 listenner.onkey(backward, "Down")
 def right():
 listenner.onkey(right, "Right")
 def left():
 listenner.onkey(left, "Left")

At the end of all the code it should look like a square on a white screen that you can move around with the arrow keys

Hi, I am getting this error after writing down code:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 3, in <module>
mover = turtle.Turtle()
File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/", line 3812, in init
Turtle._screen = Screen()

Turtle._screen = _Screen()
File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/", line 3678, in init
_Screen._root = self._root = _Root()
File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/", line 434, in init

_tkinter.TclError: no display name and no $DISPLAY environment variable


Can anyone please help me with this? Sorry, I am a newbie

I don't think you're using python turtle right now. You are using tkinter.

@gatorade322 it doesn't work with python 2.7 or normal python for some reason

turtle is a package, and on, you need to get the proper repl for the package. If you were running on Linux or something, once you have installed python (sudo apt install python3 I think), you would just import turtle, and it would open a new window.
