    @lipschitz I think you are right. While I agree with others that native MacOS Python development is great, there are two cases where I'd like to see Pythonista for IOS run under Catalyst.

    First, when I'm developing a Pythonista app to run on IOS, and I happen to be at home in front of my big screen, I like to use @code and let iCloud sync the changes to my iPad or iPhone. Then I run and test there. The sync time is normally about 2 seconds for changes. Some times much longer depending on the vagaries of iCloud. With Pythonista running on the Mac, maybe it would be faster? Certainly cmd-tabbing to Pythonista without having to pick up the phone would be convenient.

    Second, Pythonista nicely solves the "throw a UI together" problem. Certainly better than tkinter. If it ran under Catalyst, then I get access to my apps everywhere. Would also be nice for the folks who use apps I write for them.

    I wish Apple had embraced Pythonista as a first-class language for app development. This could be the next best thing.

    I found that my iPad Pro with the Apple external keyboard case was inserting slanted quotes instead of the UTF-8 quote characters expected by the Python interpreter for string literals. This was causing me to get the error:

    Warning: could not load custom attributes of view "xyz": invalid character in identifier

    I had to detach the keyboard and use the on-screen keyboard to get the correct string literal characters inserted. Note this applies to the IOS keyboard that pops up when editing custom attributes in the UI designer.

Internal error.

Oops! Looks like something went wrong!
