  • briefcase

    Tools to support converting a Python project into a standalone native application.

    I've found a lot of approaches and options, though Briefcase by BeeWare has been about the right level of sophistication for me.

  • briefcase-android-gradle-template

    A template for generating Android Gradle projects with Briefcase

    I hit an issue (no template for Python 3.10) with working with Briefcase and found myself spending a fair amount of time going down a rabbit hole trying to figure out how to fabricate a make-shift template for that.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • Toga

    A Python native, OS native GUI toolkit.

    PS: While I'm at it, I'm wondering if there's a better Python-friendly UI framework than Toga. It seems to be very basic and focused on cross-platform compatibility - which is nice, but if there's something better, that would be nice to know too.
