Dramatically improve your Android phone capabilities by installing Python scripts. Learn how to install libraries and make it smarter.
Hey everybody, today I’m going to teach you how to run Python scripts in Android. Let’s get started.
QPython is a script engine which runs Python programs on Android devices. It also can help developers develop android applications.
To install QPython and run scripts in your Android phone all you have to do is to open Google Play and search for QPython. You will probably see 2 options: one for Python 2 and another for Python 3.
Once you are done installing the app, you should see something like this:
If you swipe to the left, you can see the Menu.
Installing new libraries may be a little tricky. To do that, open the console in your Android phone and type this:
import pip pip.main(['install', 'numpy'])
Just replace “numpy” with the library you want to install.
Most of the app features are pretty intuitive. They just follow apps conventions, so there is not anything to worry about.
QPython also includes some examples of how to make your scripts look like a native Android app made in python. Those demo codes are a must check.
This was a really short tutorial, but I’m sure this is enough introduction for you to start digging yourself. If you have any question, just leave us a comment and we will help you.
