Estimated read time 2 min read

To configure the Python interpreter in Android Studio, you can follow these steps:

Step 1: Install the Python plugin for Android Studio Open Android Studio and go to “File” > “Settings” (or “Preferences” on macOS). In the settings window, navigate to “Plugins” and click on “Browse repositories”. Search for “Python” in the search bar, and you should find the “Python Community Edition” plugin. Click on the “Install” button to install the plugin.

Step 2: Configure the Python SDK After installing the Python plugin, go back to the settings window in Android Studio. This time, navigate to “Languages & Frameworks” > “Python SDK”. Click on the “+” icon to add a new Python SDK. You can either select an existing Python interpreter installed on your system or choose to configure a custom Python interpreter.

If you select an existing Python interpreter, Android Studio will automatically detect the interpreter and set it up for you. If you choose to configure a custom Python interpreter, you will need to provide the path to the Python interpreter binary manually.

Step 3: Configure the project to use the Python interpreter Open your Android Studio project, and navigate to “File” > “Project Structure”. In the project structure window, select your project module on the left-hand side. Then, go to the “Dependencies” tab and click on the “+” icon to add a new module dependency. Select “Python SDK” and choose the Python SDK that you configured in the previous step.

Step 4: Run Python code in Android Studio Now you can run Python code in Android Studio. Create a new Python file or open an existing one. Right-click on the Python file and select “Run”. You can also use the toolbar at the top to run or debug your Python code.

By following these steps, you should be able to configure the Python interpreter in Android Studio and use it for your Python development within the Android Studio IDE.
