Has anyone managed to use python with adobe air? I know it can be done with a local server, but I dunno if this is supported on the PlayBook...
Solved! Go to Solution.

The PlayBook won't have any Python accessible to us until at least the Native SDK is available, and not to AIR until they allow us to call our own native code as extensions from AS3.
Note that Python is used in the PlayBook already, but it's not available to our own code in any way.

@tags07, that app is a fake.
The description says "This is a Python interpreter right on the BlackBerry PlayBook." but the code is not being executed on the PlayBook. The author has set up a web service on his site, which is processing the requests.
An example, when you type "print 5*6" it sends this request:
It's easy to see that it's not the real thing by typing something like "print sys.path" as well, since that dumps a list of things that aren't even on the PlayBook.
Although there is a Python 2.7 executable installed on the PlayBook, the permissions are set so that we cannot use it. The author may have been hoping he could figure out how to call the real thing, so he could fulfill the "Improvements will be coming." promise made in the app's description, but it ain't gonna happen...
