In addition, there are a number of projects which are inactive or incomplete:

  • SL4A (Scripting Layer for Android), originally named ASE (Android Scripting Environment), is a set of "facades" which expose a greatly-simplified subset of the Android API. The project was originally developed within Google, but is no longer supported by them. However, a fork of the library is distributed with QPython.
  • PySide (the Python binding for the Qt toolkit) has some preliminary support for Android.

  • Although Android's primary programming language is Java, there is no known port of Jython to the platform.
