PyPad – Portable Python on the iPad!

Posted on

Not having an iPad I rarely follow the news regarding it, however I noticed this in the comp.lang.python.announce newsgroup and thought it worthy of a mention:

Hi All, I’m pleased to announce PyPad is now in the AppStore. PyPad is an iPad application containing the python interpreter and a simple execution environment……I wanted to have python available ‘on the go’ without carrying a laptop. The current implementation is based on my need to test simple python functions in an isolated environment. I hope to add more iOS specific capabilities if there is enough interest.

You can visit PyPad Homepage here:

I am pleased to see Python getting exposure on many different platforms and it’s a flexible language that is accessible enough for the new user too.  There are so many free resources on the net for Python, so no excuse not to get involved!


If you are new to this blog (or have not yet read it) please take time to view the OpenBytes statement, here.

    Do you think that you could add pygame to the list of added modules?
    And perhaps nympy also…
