For a couple of months I had to take a trip and I couldn’t bring my computer with me. So I installed the Python IDE Pydroid on both my android phone and tablet. That has been my tool to LPTHW.
I want to know your opinion about using android devices to write Python code. I’m trying to learn what are the limitations of this practice.
So far the IDE have worked great for me. It has a built- in bash, so I’ve been able to run the code from the command line.
The only thing I couldn’t do so far is to create virtual envs. Based on the error message I get I suspect it’s because my devices are not rooted.
Another curious thing is that in one of my devices that runs on Android 4.4, I encountered a interesting behaviour when started to use nose from ex46:
-If I run simply nosetests it doesn’t run any tests.
-Only when I run nosetests --exe all the tests work.
I tried that after reading a post about Ubuntu behaving a similar way.
I know that Android is built over Linux so maybe there’s a link between Ubuntu and this older version of Android.
I don’t have much knowledge about Linux, so bear in mind that I’m just trying to learn more about all this.
I couldn’t find much info online about this particular IDE or about writing python on Android. So any insight you can give me about all these things will be greatly appreciated.
This is my first post, so I’m sure it’ll come out very messy
All suggestions are welcome.
