Installing and Using Android Scripting Environment (ASE)

Problem

You need to run scripts (python, perl, lua etc) on an Android device.

Solution

Installing and using ASE to write scripts on the Android device.

Discussion

In the tools (or platform-tools, depending on where the adb executable is located) directory of the Android sdk, run: ./adb install ocation-of-the-downloaded-ase-apk

(For the first time users the list of scripts displayed in the above screenshot would not exist.)

(For the first time users the list would also include 'Python 2.6.2'. Click on it.

You can now try out python hello world programs and so much more on your Android device!
