Sometimes you need to work on the go. Termux provides a terminal environment on your Android phone.
Termux is no longer releasing current versions on Google Play. Hence, first install F-Droid. Then search for “termux” and install it!
You may want to follow the instructions and immediately install the additional repositories. I recommend root-repo and x11-repo.
~ $ pkg install root-repo ~ $ pkg install x11-repo
Then update and upgrade
~ $ pkg update ~ $ pkg upgrade
Then install your most useful packages!
~ $ pkg install git python emacs
Note as of 11/11/2021 the pip version that is installed is out of date and can be updated
~ $ python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip
Assuming you use python, a nice development environment that works on the device is jupyter. However, currently to do this it is first necessary to add one additional library. Also quite useful is pandas.
~ $ pkg install libzmq
~ $ pip install jupyter ~ $ pip install pandas
