… All of these tools have been shaped in their current form by the needs of Kivy, but are really more generic Python tools; Plyer specifically avoids any Kivy dependency, and PyJNIus only makes an assumption about how to access the JNI environment on Android. We hope that these tools can be more generally useful to anyone running Python on Android; for instance, you can already experiment with PyJNIus using the QPython Android app. Python-for-android is more tied to Kivy’s current toolchain but this is a detail under review, and we’re happy to discuss the details of Android compilation with anyone interested.

Overall, a lot is possible with Python on Android, despite how different the Python environment is to the Java development that is directly targeted.
