    I can assure those of you interested that Juno is easily worth the $10. Honestly, I’d be happy with my purchase even if I spent $20 or $30. It would be great to be able to use pandas and scipy directly on iOS, but Juno serves most of my purposes just fine. You can use cocalc or azure, or what I usually do is just run both a selenium server and a jupyter server on my laptop on the same network and just run it via Juno. And then I can do anything I want in either Python or R (or many other languages) from my iPad or phone. It’s true you can do that just via safari or other browser too, but I find it unworkable, especially on the phone. The app does make the experience pretty good.

    This thread seems like it has become the definitive thread for all things pandas/scipy so I’ll just post this here.

    Some of you may be interested in the following app:

    Python Compiler by Ketan Appa

    I’ve played with it a little and you can in fact use scipy and pandas on it. Those are preinstalled. If you upgrade for $5 you can plot as well. Which is nice.

    The problem, and for me it’s a pretty big problem, is that your code is sent to a server and compiled remotely (with a max running time of 30s). There are of course many reasons not to do that. But for just learning to work with scipy or pandas or for just playing with generic ideas, I thought perhaps someone could find it interesting. It is buggy but I’ve been successful getting a few basic things to work.

    I corresponded a bit with the developer and he is quite responsive. He also said he is thinking of having the code run locally in the future, but there is certainly no reason to expect that to be successful - I would think he will likely hit the same problems as omz.

    Anyway for real tasks, I’m still hoping for at least pandas on pythonista one day if there’s no hope for scipy (I would gladly pay $20 more than I have already paid for those - just saying). But I thought someone may find this interesting since it is a relatively new app.

    Hmm. Yup. I feel stupid. Just didn’t seem like the type of thing that Microsoft would do so I didn’t even look. I guess I thought it would be difficult on iOS or something. Thanks!

    Is there a way to programmatically write to OneDrive.

    The long version of the question is that I am trying to do some web scraping and data analysis from my iPhone, but since pandas and scipy are out of the question for pythonista, I need to do the scraping and data gathering here in pythonista, and then transfer the gathered data over to OneDrive so that I can access it from a MS Azure Notebook and do the analysis there (azure notebooks only allows limited network access to a few of the bigger cloud storage systems). I’m using OneDrive for this. I could collect all the data into one big file using pythonista and transfer manually, but for several reasons, it would be nice to be able to programmatically write many smaller text files directly to OneDrive. Is this possible?

    Hi,

    A newbie with the ui module and kind of python too so thanks in advance.

    I'm wondering if there is any way, in a WebView, to get information back about interactions with a webpage. So specifically, imagine something like an "inspect element" button on a desktop browser. Could you, for example, print to the console the HTML associated with a button you click?

    If that's possible, could someone point me in the right direction as to where to start? In reading docs and the forum, I'm not getting anywhere.

    Thanks!
