– Offline Python 2.7 interpreter: no Internet is required to run Python programs.
– Full-featured Terminal Emulator, with a readline support (available in pip).
– Pip package manager and a custom repository for prebuilt wheel packages for heavy libraries, such as numpy, scipy and matplotlib
– Built-in C, C++ and even Fortran compiler designed by n0n3m4, an author of C4droid, specially for Pydroid. It lets Pydroid build any library from pip, even if it is using native code. You can also build & install dependencies from a command line..
– Cython support.
– PDB debugger with breakpoints and watches.
– Kivy graphical library with a shiny new SDL2 backend.
– Matplotlib Kivy support available in Quick Install repository.

Editor features:
– Code prediction, auto indentation and real time code analysis just like in any real IDE.
– Extended keyboard bar with all symbols you need to program in Python.
– Syntax highlighting & themes.
– Tabs.
– Enhanced code navigation with interactive assignment/definition gotos.
– One click share on Pastebin.

Quick manual.
Pydroid requires at least 170MB free internal memory. 200MB+ is recommended. More if you are using heavy libraries such as scipy.
To run debug place breakpoint(s) clicking on the line number.
SDL2/Kivy is detected with “import kivy”, “from kivy“ or “#Pydroid run sdl2”.

Pydroid is an early-access app.
We were working hard on capturing and fixing all the bugs, but nobody is perfect. That’s why we provide a major discount for a first month. Take a part in development of Pydroid by reporting bugs or providing feature requests to us. We appreciate that.
Even though Pydroid was developed for a year, some more features are planned and discussed. One of them is PyQt5 as a GUI.

Important notice:
Some users experienced major problems when installing libraries from QPython QPypi internal repository, so consider it to be binary incompatible with Pydroid. If you need any libraries that cannot be built with Pydroid – contact the devs directly: other binary repositories are likely to be incompatible as well.

Legal information.
Some binaries in Pydroid APK are licensed under (L)GPL, email me for the source code.
GPL pure Python libraries bundled with Pydroid are considered to be coming in the source code form already.
Pydroid doesn’t bundle any GPL-licensed native modules to avoid automatic import of them. The famous example of such library is GNU readline, that can be installed using pip.
