Any information on when the next release is coming?
Nooo, seriously is that happening? @omz please let us know. Pythonista is a gem of the App Store, and one of the best learning tool I’ve used - perfect also for kids code learning. It should go into schools. I really hope you’ll find a way to maintain it. 🤞
@ccc any idea about how to convert ui-based app to Pyto ? it’s probably one of the worst case scenario no?
I have not done much Pyto ui but you would probably find help at the Pyto Discord channel: https://discord.gg/XCKkvJS

Good luck 🙄
Just to leave a breadcrumb of hope in this thread, if you have not already found it, go check out the "ish" app. The open source project did the assembly needed to run a real linux machine native from the app. It wont be for the gui lovers, but the fact that I can install any normal linux package I would install on a normal linux host means with the right cli setup it can become an amazing little native programming/automation environment that is being supported by the linux community instead of relying on a single developer to add support.
I'll always have a place in my heart for pythonista3. The "ish" app existing makes the reality of this apps python version going EOL at the end of 2021 hurt a lot less though.
Python 3.10 was released today for your non-iOS platforms...
@codykochmann Did you figure out how to install Python 3 (via Pyenv or other) on ish?
@ccc use the alpine package manager
apk add python3
Other useful packages
apk add py3-virtualenv
apk add py3-pip
apk add vim
Don't forget to run apk update before any installs.
I've just started exploring iSH and I'm super impressed with the project.
What you gain is extreme flexibility. What you lose out on - that you had with Pythonista - was a supreme UI experience.
Is iSH very performant? I'd think that, being an x86 emulator, it would horribly slow.
@JonB it's very very slow
To the point it's not practical for projects with big dependencies.
So far, combo of Raspberry Pi, Blink Shell is best iPad-based platform for me; editing on Pythonista and using Working Copy where possible.
