Is there a way to run Python on Android?


We are working on an S60 version and this platform has a nice Python API.

However, there is nothing official about Python on Android, but since Jython exists, is there a way to let the snake and the robot work together?



One way is to use Kivy:

Open source Python library for rapid development of applications that make use of innovative user interfaces, such as multi-touch apps.


Kivy runs on Linux, Windows, OS X, Android and iOS. You can run the same [python] code on all supported platforms.

An example via Matt Cutts -- "here’s a barcode scanner written in six lines of Python code:

import android
droid = android.Android()
code = droid.scanBarcode()
isbn = int(code['result']['SCAN_RESULT'])
url = "http://books.google.com?q=%d" % isbn
droid.startActivity('android.intent.action.VIEW', url)
