    @ellie_ff1493, can you be a bit more specific on what you are trying to accomplish? I think you already know that literally running a ”new process” is not possible in Pythonista due to Apple restrictions on apps.

    @twinsant, as for Pythonista, I think it could be an excellent teaching environment, as it is a single easy-to-install bundle. As long as you are mostly teaching basics, I see no problem whether it gets the latest versions or not, and in fact may be a more stable platform than most.

    The main challenges I see are around an easy way to distribute your code samples, review the results, seeing the progress of your students, and being able to help them without taking the device away from them. Maybe others have ideas there?

    If you are feeling ambitious, maybe you could build some kind of a tracking or screen sharing system on top of multipeer?

    @twinsant, I have no experience with startups or teaching Python to anyone, and maybe others here have the same problem.

    But... The latest episode of Python Bytes had a discussion of tools for teaching Python. See the notes, about halfway through the page.

    Michael’s other podcast, Talk Python to Me, has also had several episodes discussing why and how people from different industries have found and learned Python. Perhaps worth browsing the archives.

    @RoninSage, some suggestions:

    • You do not need to compile the whole list of fonts every time - you can just set the font by the name you find in the font picker ('+' above the keyboard, on the right).
    • You do not need to include the whole code for gestures, you can just import it.
    • Again, you do not really need gestures for the most part, just for the edge swipe to proceed. For tapping the answers I would simplify the code a lot by just using ui.Buttons, all with action set to the same handler function that distinguishes which button was tapped by the name of the center.
    • For saving the answers, do you have a distinct need for CSV, instead of something slighly more robust?

    @cvp, I had no trouble with your picture. Probably it got processed somehow by imgur.

    Maybe if @iOSBrett would share his picture?

    @cvp, @iOSBrett, is there a chance for you to share a problem picture to experiment on? Preferably also a smaller one.

    @RoninSage, there’s of course also an option of replacing the two-finger swipe with some other gesture.

    ... and if you decide to go with the custom UI.View and want to get really fancy, with questions and answers flying in and out or other effects like that, then I would recommend Scripter to make managing the animations easier.

    @cvp, while I appreciate the shout-out for Gestures, it seems truly an overkill for this use case, as is Scene.

    Quickest way to get this going would probably be console.alert, which lets you show a title (e.g. ”Question #1”), the question, and three options for answers.

    If you want more fancy graphics, a custom ui.View with a TextView and Buttons is quite straightforward as well. You can use the UI designer to create the layout.

    Let us know what you need to get forward.

    @midas9087, you can allow ”unsafe browsers” from Google settings, if I recall correctly. Unsafeness had maybe something to with SSL/TLS versions.
