Open Source Android Apps for Developers: android-scripting

We have talked about the PHP for Android project (PFA), which provides PHP support to Android Scripting Environment (ASE). Now it’s time to talk about the open source Android project: Android Scripting Environment (ASE).

Apps Description
Android Scripting Environment(ASE) is a Google-mantained open source Android project which is descripted as “Scripting Layer for Android brings scripting languages to Android “.

Scripting Layer for Android (SL4A, formerly known as Android Scripting Environment or ASE) brings scripting languages to Android by allowing you to edit and execute scripts and interactive interpreters directly on the Android device. These scripts have access to many of the APIs available to full-fledged Android applications, but with a greatly simplified interface that makes it easy to get things done. Scripts can be run interactively in a terminal, in the background, or via Locale. Python, Perl, JRuby, Lua, BeanShell, JavaScript, Tcl, and shell are currently supported, and planning to add more. SL4A will focus on providing:

* a simple, very high level API layer on top of Android’s own APIs,
* on-device developer tools (script editing, launching, debugging, etc.),
* sharing scripts as APKs (i.e. typical Android applications),
* and standards for adding new interpreters.
