If you want to learn, look no further!

This is the app that got me learning the basics of python, i still have a long way to go, and the fact that it can be used on a portable machine makes life 10X easier. One thing though, as i begin to take on more advanced project (making a program to automate excel files) it be easier to import modules. Is there any way i can get modules from Github or Pypi and install them on the app?

Developer Response ,

Yes! Just install pip modules in the command line as you would do on a desktop.

Frustrating bugs, but mostly a solid app by an indie developer.

Using this at first was pretty frustrating running into problems with what felt like pretty basic stuff – terrible support for the touch keyboard (selecting text is difficult to impossible) PLUS issues with the hardware keyboard (Want to scroll with two fingers? Think again!) left me wondering how I was actually *supposed* to use the app. But when I went to submit a bug report and saw it was a direct link to the issues on GitHub, I read a little bit about why the bugs are the way they are, realized that this seems to be either a small team or like, one dude, and saw that they are trying their best and listening to feedback. And I appreciate that.

So this won’t work as your lounge-on-your-couch-with-the-iPad-and-code app I like I hoped it would, but it’s still pretty solid. Looks good, performance is great – if you want to support a small team (or just a dude, possibly) and don’t mind a few little quirks here and there, this does the trick!

(Also if you’re reading this, support for more than one set of GIT credentials eventually would be dope 👌)

Olden out of date software that doesn’t allow modern development

It’s impossible to work on a modern Django5 app using Django allauth are use any kind of actual web development process with this poorly maintained application because the python version is so old that modern web stuff doesn’t support it and so you can’t even install the wheels because the python version is so out of date.

I had really high hopes for this app and now I’m regretting the purchase and warning my devs to stay away due to the lack of updates, and the fact that everything is so old that you can’t even get a modern requirements text file to install the dependencies you need to actually work on your application.

I really feel like this was a bait and switch, and I’m angry, because I had a really high hopes, so I paid.
