@jesse so do you just experience a blank screen for a brief moment or a page filled with code?
I feel that just a blank screen for a few moments is less of an issue than the problem @andymitchhank cited
@andymitchhank hmmm, hopefully @omz has a solution. I haven't come across this anywhere else in the forums or in my own experience using pythonista/xcode. I haven't taken anything COMPLETELY through the pipeline yet, so I'm not sure if I would encounter a similar problem but I love to troubleshoot before I get there and help others troubleshoot to learn from their experience. Keep me posted on your progress and I'll update you if I have a similar issue.
In my other xcode experiences using a language other than obj c, I've never seen/heard something like this...it is intriguing.
Ah, yes. Very cool. Nice work.
Thanks @Gerzer. Good to hear you had some success. Looking forward to my project with it as well. What was the app? Would love to check it out...
Above is post with latest Xcode template along with set of directives from @omz
There already is an updated template that @omz put together. I found it posted in a similar thread. There is a link to download it. I have it saved in Dropbox. I haven't used it yet, but it does exist.
The technology to build and submit apps directly to App Store just doesn't exist yet....and I am sure Apple doesn't allow it. However, given the growth and advancements in the industry it could only be a few years from now that you can build package AND submit an app entirely from your iPhone 8+
I hope I was helpful, Pythonista is a great app and I hope you don't feel like you wasted your money. Focus on learning what Python can do and understanding its syntax and go from there.....
My name is Jeff. Good Luck on your coding endeavors.
There currently is no way to export a project to the App Store from within the App. There is no app in the App Store that can do this. In order to get an app to the App Store, you have to use a MAC, have a developer account, and use Apple's Xcode
Here is what you do:
Build app in Pythonista
Export to Dropbox
Download the Xcode project template to your MaC computer
Set up a developer license with Apple (99$ a year)
Put Python script and template together in Xcode and build app to submit to App Store
Like it or not. This is the process. It's not perfect, but the road to App Store success is bumpy😉
