    If you need a GUI for OSX I'd try out Kivy, Would love to see kivy implemented in pythonista, would make cross platform devv so much easier.

    @wm neat script. I had used a similar method (manually changing names) when I first started using pythonista. You may want to check out the StaSh project, as it has a limited git. git is nice because it allows you to commit changes (create save points) in a project and roll back/see revision history with ease.

    I'm a big fan of pythonista and it would be really cool to use option 1. I have not done much on the ipad with analizing images, I've used @ccc mentioned option of the raspberry pi. Works well.

    Option 2 shouldn't be to difficult. With Apple announcing the ability to install directly on the device without the dev license make this option sound better. Kivy is amazing, I've become a big fan of it. I'd suggest pyCharm for a IDE.

    @ShadowSlayer gamepie is looking good! Thanks for sharing it. I'll be digging around and playing with it.

    @omz How do you close pythonista when ran in safari? The x is grayed out for me and I have to clear safari from memory to remove the pythonista popup.

    @omz You have been busy! Thank you for your continued support in pythonista, Please give us a way to donate to you or an optional in app. With as much time that I have spent in pythonista, I feel guilty buying the app on sale and would like to support your continued development.

    Looking forward to playing with the new beta!

    @omz Thank you for updating us. Looking forward to the new build! It looks awesome. Game Dev tools look like a lot of fun. In the end it is we that signed up to test builds, and unfortunately that sometimes means there will be issues. Keep up the great work!

    NO app will be able to do this, you must have a Mac and the $99 dev license. Pythonista is by far the best python app on the app store.

    @scj643 I'm sorry but I'm not quite sure what you are trying to do. Are you wanting to use a config file in a project you are working on or another app (font installer)?

    StaSh ssh can keep the terminal open, and not just issue a single command. I believe it do work with screen, you just can only connect to one screen. If so type:
    ssh [--password PASSWORD] [-p PORT] user@host
    You should login to terminal. I use this to handle all my git repositories from the ipad. ssh also supports Pub key authentication.

    You can also submit stash requests on github.

    You could get StaSh that has pip for package install.

    It should work, the pypi package shows 100% python with no external dependencies.

    I'm wondering if it would be possible for @omz to add kivy to pythonista. I've been using it on my laptop a lot and love it. It would really help bridge the UI and graphics cross platform. When working on projects at work, pythonista is very handy for ios versions but then I have to go back and create a ui for windows, having a cross platform UI would save a lot of work.

    @wradcliffe Good info, I wasn't sure if it would be possible but it would sure open cross platform development up quite a bit. I'd easily pay for the pythonista IDE ontop of kivy. Just think of the cross platform capabilities! I had been tossing around the idea of creating an IDE with kivy to run kivy. I don't know how possible this is but if @omz could pull it off, i'd be a very happy camper.

    @ccc if you are referring to the Beta release, In the past, I've installed the release versions over the Betas and retained my scripts. You could use iexplorer and drag the scripts onto a computer.

    You may want to look at runpy from the standard library.

    @ywangd Tip of the day is a great idea, If I hadn't recently dove into linux command-line I'd be lost in staSh.

    @whitone Glad you find the pip module useful. It's still limited on which packages it can install but it manages most of the common ones. We have tried to stub out setuptool as best we can but there are so many use cases. Currently pip will simply look for a folder with the same name as the package and put it into site-packages. Then it will look for src/package_name and as a last resort will attempt to run the setup.

    I think @omz should add StaSh to the pythonista installation. It;s incredably useful and community developed. Props to @ywangd for creating such an awesome package.
