Transferring files to and from Pythonista

Pythonista is a fantastic iOS app—one that really pushes the boundaries of what iPhones and iPads are capable of doing. However, due to Apple’s restrictions, developer Ole Zorn can’t include any kind of file syncing for scripts within the app nor can he add Pythonista to the system share sheet as a destination for files.

There is a work around, though: copy and paste this script by Ole into Pythonista, then run it. The script creates an FTP server that is accessible over your local network. You can then use Panic’s excellent Transmit to transfer files to and from Pythonista on the same iOS device.
