How to install Python2 and Python3 in Termux on Android?[No root]

Python is a programming language created by Guido van Rossum in 1991. Python has many features and benefits, such as:

  • readability
  • making it easier to debug code and maintain
  • developer productivity
  • making it easy for developers to develop new projects quickly using the extensive standard library and third-party libraries
  • scalability
  • can be used on any size project or team without difficulty

With Python being highly readable, programmers can easily understand others’ code. The syntax within the language allows programmers to express themselves clearly with fewer lines of code. It also makes efficient memory use, which is beneficial when working on large projects.

It makes collaboration seamless for teams of multiple programmers by avoiding most syntactical problems that other languages have. The language is scalable enough to be used on small to large groups with no necessary changes but can also be adjusted.

And so, I would recommend you try Termux. It is a highly reliable and lightweight terminal emulator that provides you to execute python scripts on your device and gives you various options to try C++, Perl, JavaScript, Node.js, and Ruby scripting SLA4A projects.

Now Let’s understand how to install python on android, and then we will see how to run python 3 on termux.
