What do you mean by this exactly? I thought kivy = python + some
libraries. So if kivy works on android that necessarily means that
python itself works as well, doesn't it?
I thought I'd use kivy even
if I don't need any of their fancy libraries only a basic python
installation, but you'd say this is not a good approach?
