Pythonista 101: Building Blocks

If you’ve been with us since the beginning of Pythonista 101, you know that we’ve covered quite a bit of ground.

Then we graduated to breaking down those scripts we found, and making some modifications to them.

Well now it’s time to graduate even further, and look at where the real power and potential in Pythonista comes from: modules.

Pythonista 101: Python Wrangling

After the last article you should now be familiar with the Pythonista app as well as the eager community of developers which support it. While we did create a new script and learn how to import other scripts into Pythonista, we didn’t actually write any Python code. And while we won’t be writing any scripts from scratch this time, we will be learning how to read a Python program, as well as to modify certain aspects of it to add functionality or make it our own.

Pythonista 101: The Scripting Community

A real asset to Pythonista is the enthusiastic developer community that’s sprung up around the app. The Pythonista Forums are a rich source of support when struggling to debug a script of your own, or when looking to release a script for use by the rest of the Pythonista community.

As it has become a common place to post Pythonista scripts, we’ll be showing off a few select examples found in the Pythonista forums to help give you an idea of the sort of thing Pythonista is capable of. We’ll also explain how to integrate a script from the web into your copy of Pythonista.

Welcome students.

Over the next three weeks you’ll go from being Python novices to Pythonistas. You’ll be learning how to use the app Pythonista to leverage the power of the Python programming language and expand what you previously thought possible using iOS.

Before we dive into what Pythonista is, why it’s interesting, and what we’ll cover in this series, let me explain a bit about Python, the programming language Pythonista uses.
