I'm a noob at this stuff, but would anyone know if it is possible to run a python based program like sage math inside pythonista 3? Thanks
It doesn't look like it would be possible to use Sage Math in Pythonista. According to the homepage, it is based on various libraries and software that Pythonista doesn't have. For example, scipy is not available in Pythonista (but not due to lack of demand, it's an often requested addition, but there are technical issues that make it hard to add to Pythonista). Sage Math also seems to use Maxima and R, which are entirely separate tools that have nothing to do with Python. Not to mention that any GUI code would need to be rewritten completely to work on Pythonista.
Pythonista does however include several mathematics-related libraries, such as
matplotlib, which work almost exactly like they do on a normal Python installation.
There is a
Sage Mathapp in Apple's App Store but I have not used it. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sage-math/id496492945
Also listen to https://talkpython.fm/episodes/show/59/sagemath-open-source-is-ready-to-compete-in-the-classroom to understand Sage Math from a Python perspective.
Pyrhonista 3 contains : import sympy as sp (or the like) , which can already partly what sage can do ;-)
actually, if you have an internet connection available, you can use the sagecell server.
the above thread has a few options, such as a wrench menu that lets you "run" sagecell scripts, or a way to manually execute them within the conext of another script, and then use the outputs.
