How to get started with Google’s new SDK for iOS developer
Posted On July 24, 2021
The new iOS SDK for Google’s Python programming language has been released and it’s already the most popular of Google’s APIs for building iOS apps.
This SDK has also been adopted by the likes of Apple, Microsoft, and Facebook.
It has the same basic API features as the API that Apple used to build its own iOS SDK, but adds a number of new features that make it much more flexible and customizable.
Google is adding an advanced feature called the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), which allows you to build your own iOS apps in C, C++, and Java.
You can learn more about the Java runtime environment here.
Google has been working on the Java programming language since 2005, but the company is only releasing it to developers in the U.S. right now.
The JRE for Android and iOS is expected to be released in the coming months.
Google’s SDK for Python is still in beta, so developers can’t make any significant changes to the API yet.
The new Java runtime features for Python are mostly cosmetic.
They’re mostly focused on allowing you to add support for Java 8 and the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to your Python code, but it’s possible that developers will be able to add new features in the future.
Google already has a Java-based toolkit that can be used to compile Python code for Android, but developers are still able to use the Python SDK for Android to build Android apps.
Google says that Python apps built using the Java SDK will run on devices with Java installed and can be run on any supported operating system.
The SDK for Java can be downloaded from Google’s Developer Portal here.
