This is the community forum for my apps Pythonista and Editorial.
For individual support questions, you can also send an email. If you have a very short question or just want to say hello — I'm @olemoritz on Twitter.
Does anyone have experience developing directly on the Mac? I'd like to use VS Code to do my editing, but run the apps in the traditional Pythonista UI.
The biggest challenge is whenever I save a .py file, Pythonista rewrites its version so my changes are undone.
Anyone have some good best practices for Mac development?

@robot1125 I create a small launcher script that runs the script that I am editing. This way the script is not open in Pythonista when you save changes from the external editor.
# adev.py import sys, os, time, runpy import console console.clear() runpy.run_path('uitext.py', init_globals=globals(), run_name='__main__')
@bosco Nice, that works perfectly!
