Alternative Python IDE for iOS (with Pandas!)
upwart last edited by upwart
In the python-announce-list newsletter, I found the announcement of a new Python implementation on iOS. Interestingly, PyTo, runs Python 3.7 and has built in NumPy, matplotlib and Pandas!
I have just downloaded it and it looks pretty well organized and well thought of. I haven't done any thing serious testing yet, though.
Here is the announcement:

Subject: Pyto: Open Source iOS app to code Python with NumPy, Pandas & Matplotlib
I wanted to announce here a "new" iOS app for coding Python: Pyto. It's available on the App Store and is open source.
The app has a file browser with scripts, a code editor with syntax coloring and smart code completion and a console that supports input. It also has a REPL. Themes can be applied for the whole app.
Scripts can be debugged with PDB and breakpoints can be set from the editor.
Apple APIs with Python
A module is pre-installed for accessing Objective-C class. An 'UIKit' module is written on top of it with all UIKit classes and an 'ui' module allows showing user interfaces created with Apple APIs.
iOS restrictions make impossible to load dynamic libraries outside the app bundle, so no module with C code can be installed, like NumPy, Pandas and Matplotlib. So, the main goal of this app is to provide latest versions of most popular libraries that have C code and cannot be installed by the user.
The app has NumPy 1.16.1, Pandas 0.24.1 and Matplotlib 0.24.1. Matplotlib supports displaying figures on the console.
Other pure Python modules
Other pure Python modules can be installed with a minimal version of pip.
