Assume that you gave access Pythonista to "File Provider Storage" (which is On my IPad in Files).
The path of a file there is like /private/var/mobile/Containers/Shared/AppGroup/EF3F9065-AD98-4DE3-B5DB-21170E88B77F/File Provider Storage/MyFolder/MyFile.xxx where you see a set of hexadecimal digits which will be different on each of your devices.
To know, once, which is this device-id, run this script
import dialogs print(dialogs.pick_document(types=['public.item']))
and select a file in the folder you want. The script will print a path.
Don't worry about infos of the path, like /tmp/com.omz-software.Pythonista3-Inbox/.
Thank you very much for your step by step tutorial ! I love Python and having it on my Ipad is really wonderful. I have my own Contacts application store on sqlite database. Now I can use that app anywhere ! Thanks again !
I am beginner to Python. I just installed Pythonista on my Ipad. In my desktop, I have no difficulties to connect my python script to a sqlite db, I just need the file path. But on my Ipad, how do I connect if by sqlite db in on Ipad Files folder ? Could anyone show me a generic example in how to connect your script to a file in your Ipad ? Thank you very much !
