  • Android Miner
    I don't recommend any web miner, but if you absolutely had to use one at least the one in my original comment, purely because moneroocean is a reputable pool. Like I said, you could also try compiling xmrig in an android terminal emulator like termux, no idea how well that'd work though.

    It is not, but looks like something went wrong in the upload of the debs for all arches except aarch64. Will be fixed on main repo in ~15 minutes (when the build finishes), and on mirrors within a few hours.
  • [IMPORTANT] Deprecation notice for Google Play Store Termux builds
    reddit.com/r/termux | 2021-09-09
    Termux and its plugins are no longer updated on Google Play Store due to android 10 issues and have been deprecated. The last version released for Android >= 7 was v0.101. It is highly recommended to not install Termux apps from Play Store any more.
  • [IMPORTANT] Deprecation notice of Google Play Store builds
    reddit.com/r/termux | 2021-09-09
    There is currently no work being done to solve android 10 issues and working updates will not be resumed on Google Play Store any time soon. We will continue targeting sdk 28 for now. So there is not much point in staying on Play Store builds and waiting for updates to be resumed. If for some reason you don't want to move to F-Droid or Github sources for now, then at least check Package Management to change your mirror, otherwise, you will get **repository is under maintenance or down** errors when running apt or pkg commands. After that, it is also highly advisable to run pkg upgrade command to update all packages to the latest available versions, or at least update termux-tools package with pkg install termux-tools command.

    Have you installed from google play? See https://github.com/termux/termux-packages/issues/6726
  • Python console mobile app?
    As an alternative to a specific Python installation, you could try Termux which basically gives you a full Linux shell that you can install Python into.
  • E-Ink Typewriter

    The Android-based Onyx BOOX ebook reader supports an bluetooth keyboard. The company will sell you a reasonably decent one (it lacks function and escape keys) for $35.

    The Termux Linux terminal and environment (https://termux.com/) is installable via F-Droid. Among the terminal schemes is an e-ink mode of dark-on-light. Font size is scalable.

    Through Termux you have your choice of terminal-mode editors, including vim, emacs, nano, pico, and numerous others.

    The handwriten notes feature is also quite good. Text-recognition is a bit iffy but does work.

    My main reservation with this setup is that Android's memory management is fatally flawed and processes can be terminated at any time without warning. Terminal sessions really ought to be exemptable from that, but AFAIK they are not.

    Still, it's a quite good environment with nearly 1,500 packages available using the APT package tool.

    Any Android or LineageOS -capable device should be able to function likewise. There are a few Linux-based devices also on the market (and yes, Kobo is one), including the reMarkable tablet (my major gripe: 16 GB storage is simply stupidly small, this supports a cabled keyboard but not AFAIU Bluetooth), and devices from Pine (in process) and possibly Purism.

  • Session keeps getting disconnected
    reddit.com/r/termux | 2021-08-18
    Sounds like battery optimizer is the cause. This issue discusses that wifi becomes slow (and gives a workaround for root), but for you it sounds like it disconnects fully?
  • [Showcase] kde plasma in termux! , alpine + compile proot + kde plasma, (32bits 2GB of ram my phone)

    On Play Store version you will encounter only https://github.com/termux/termux-packages/issues/6726, which can be easily solved by following the instructions. But yes, it is discontinued.
