I maintain a library called Pygame Zero which allows beginner programmers to start writing games without lines of boilerplate importing libraries, creating event loops and so on.

To support these features, Pygame Zero provides the 'pgzrun' command:

    pgzrun <script>

(or if you prefer, 'python -m pgzero <script>')

Any workarounds for this, to make games written with this framework run directly in IDLE, would detract from its "zero-boilerplate" approach.

I believe this is similar to, but different from #5680, which is about supplying sys.argv to the running process; this is about switching out interpreter entirely.

This issue corresponds to an issue in the Pygame Zero tracker:
