Python Turtle on iPad
Profile icon
PetraJarebrant1

I´m a teacher and my students all have iPads. We don´t have any computers in class.
I´m trying to do PythonTurtle with iPads.
I have chosen the Python turtle language.
I do the following but I only get the green window. No turtle and no line.

import turtle
wn = turtle.Screen()
wn.bgcolor("lightgreen")
alex = turtle.Turtle()
alex.forward(150)

Is it possible to get this to work on an iPad or should I leave it?
What do I use insted to teach Pythonturtle on iPad?

If you are asked to teach Python Turtle, you should try to set your browser window to desktop mode. Google <browser name (eg. Chrome, Safari)> desktop mode.

This now appears to work on iOS 13, in both Safari och Chrome, on both iPhone och iPad. Works out of the box i.e. no need to request desktop site (not sure that ever worked though).

I have the same question. Would be great to get support for Python Turtle on iOS devices. I love repl.it and really don't want to have to find another platform to make this work!
