The session reinitializes everytime the screen rotates, autocomplete keeps trying to remove the space before commas (pro tip: add two spaces before commas), but who cares. I CAN PROGRAM ON MY PHONE[1]. suzuki, thank you, thank you for semi-arc.

[1] Without submitting to some arbitrary bureaucratic process that makes me not even want to try.

"The session reinitializes everytime the screen rotates"

@suzuki:

It might help to configure the Android project's manifest as described here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1512045/how-to-disable-or...

I don't know if onSaveInstanceState() is really possible to implement well without serializable continuations, but other Android REPLs work pretty well (particularly Ruboto IRB!), so you might find some ideas there.

Autocomplete ruins my day too. ^_^ You might be able to go to "Settings > Language & keyboard" to configure it. If it still happens after that, installing a new keyboard oughta help. At least it'll give you a fresh set of quirks to deal with. :-p

Thanks for the info. Now I have both my languages of choice - Ruby and Arc - on my phone. My cup of joy runneth over.

Thanks for the tip. It's pretty cool - can save and run scripts as well. I'm sure Semi-Arc will get there as well.
