So, recently I was away from my home town. And since I was not carrying any Laptop I had no efficient way to practice coding, Data Structures or Algorithms since I am doing Competitive programming from Codechef.

But I still had my smartphone so why not just use it. I knew this app before called "TERMUX" but never tried it. So now its time to use it.

So "TERMUX" is a terminal app with whole lot of functionality. The app is just 173kb of course with no modules install by default.

Lets start with setup, firstly run this commands to update APT and install Vim or Nano Code editor.


// "TERMUX" uses APT & PKG package manager to install packages.
//Update apt
>>> apt update

//Install Vim or Nano
>>> apt install vim
>>> apt install nano
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

So in this blog lets see how we can have basic Python & C++ coding Environment in Termux.

First thing is installing Python and C++, lets start.

Setting up Python

#Install Python
>>> apt install python // This will also install pip.
#Run python
>>> python 
#Then type your code and and press enter 2x to run the code.
#To exit python
>>> exit()

#Running python files.
#To create .py files with Vim
>>> vim filename.py
#To create .py files with Nano
>>> Nano filename.py

#Next the Editor will open type your code
#To save ur code simply press esc then type 
>>> :wq
#To run the code
>>> python filname.py


#Install python packages
>>> pip install <package>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Setting up C++

#Install c++ compiler
>>> apt install clang++ // This will also install pip.

#Running c++ files.
#To create .cpp files with Vim
>>> vim filename.cc
#To create .py files with Nano
>>> Nano filename.cc

#Next the Editor will open type your code
#To save ur code simply press esc then type 
>>> :wq

#To compile the code
>>> clang++ -Wall -std=c++11 filename.cc -o test

#To run the code
>>> ./filename
