Mobile App?

What do you think about making a mobile app for repl. There are very few functioning IDE apps that allow you to install packages as well.

Why hasn't this been done though

I feel like repl.it wouldn't need too much effort on building it because they can use React Native, which is based on React (repl.it uses React for the website)

That would be awesome.
Maybe some one could create a REPL with a basic implementation

Programmers create new functional applications, filling them with various exciting and necessary options for the modern man. Today it isn't easy to imagine a smartphone without a set of unique mobile apps, making human life more fascinating. We need to make a good app for replit , too. Are there any good developers here? Some mobile applications are as good as their PC counterparts in terms of technical characteristics and a set of all sorts of options.

To be honest, I don't really know if this is a good idea. There are already a lot of apps where you can run the programming language. So the industry is pretty competitive. And I am sure that people will choose to use the existing apps rather than the new unverified apps. Anyway, if you are interested in your idea that much, I can recommend you speak with an app developer. For instance, I've used once the help of the guys from https://www.cubycode.com. You can also give them a call.

I've experimented with this multiple times in the past but never got something that felt "right"...
What are some of your favorite mobile IDEs? I can check it out, maybe the state of the art has advanced since then.

@amasad

The best one I've used by far is pythonista as it's the only I've found that allows some use of packages. I haven't tried many for other languages but the sololearn app seems to have the best one for anything else. Pythonista is the only app that comes close to being a full ide.

@amasad I'm a little late, but one that I really like (though there are no packages) is mobile c, the keyboard design is great and they have the terminal and input down, I've been developing my game jam on it but have to copy it over to the computer every time, an app that could connect with all of my repls would be extremely useful!

@amasad also late to the party, but agree with @Wilmor21 that Pythonista is my current favorite. Improvements to Pythonista I can think of off the top of my head:

  • Ability to run pip from a command line
  • Ability to use frameworks, i.e. Flask, and launch localhosts
  • Modify the keyboard - it's awesome that they put common Python symbols like colon, brackets, etc at the top of the alphabetical keyboard for easy access, would be even better if you could customize it.
  • Better error and warning highlighting/UI in general
  • This sounds silly, but a set of left/right arrow buttons somewhere on or near the keyboard that move the cursor one character to either direction would be very nice. On iOS at least, you have to long press and drag to move the cursor exactly where you want it (usually in the middle of a variable name)
  • On-screen shortcuts or configurable tap-style shortcuts for copy and paste.

@TheKevinGibbons there is a script that you can download to pythonista called stash that basically runs a bash console with pip built in. I have used it on many occasions and I can confirm that it works flawlessly.
