PyRoom is a full-screen writing program, i.e. a full-screen text editor with the purpose of isolating the user from the operating system and other applications. Written using the GTK+ widget toolkit, PyRoom is a clone of the WriteRoom text editor and features "distraction-free writing".[1] Because PyRoom takes up the whole screen, it is "without buttons, widgets, formatting options, menus and with only the minimum of required dialog windows". It is keyboard oriented and can be configured.

Pyroom supports the following keyboard commands:[2][3]
