Python is a programming language which is applicable to scripting phone functionalities and graphical user interfaces. Currently, at least SettingsGUI and SMSTool use it. There is also Python ncurses for character user interfaces. Manually using Bluetooth is partially based on using Python.

Environment

Source packages for Python contained in OpenEmbedded include:

python python-pygtk python-pycairo python-pygobject

Binary packages for Python are not officially built yet but at least ScaredyCat's repositories provide them:

python-core python-misc python-lang python-subprocess python-threading 

Graphical applications need the following binary packages too:

python-pygtk python-pycairo python-pygobject
NOTE: These packages take up a considerable amout of space (several megabytes). Make sure that you have enough free space or install the packages to the media card as explained in package management.
