AndroPy Python Library Allows Your Linux PC to Easily Communicate with Your Phone

AndroPy Python Library Allows Your Linux PC to Easily Communicate with Your Phone

When you get a new Android device, you are undoubtedly extremely excited. More than likely, one of your buddies told you about these so-called “ROMs,” root access, and so on. But you need to start somewhere, and this is how your journey on XDA begins.

For most of you, using ADB is simple like making tea. However, some of less experienced folks may struggle with installing a fully working ADB and fastboot, especially on Linux. Android Debug Bridge is a must when you want to get a log of your device or simply to root it sometimes.

Inspired by JDroidLib, XDA Senior Member zantekk wrote a python equivalent to make the communication between your phone / tablet and Linux PC easier. This library is still in early development stage, so not many things work. However, you can install the ADB binary on 64-bit version of Linux as well as reboot your device to bootloader and recovery. It can also execute the shell commands needed to do things such as changing permissions. The only requirements are a (64-bit) Linux machine and Python 3 installed.

If you are new to Android world or simply looking for some tools to make your life easier, head over to the development thread and find some more details about the AndroPy open source project.
