Complex situation here. Contains user created content (Python code and projects) that should be kept. Also contains files that can be cleared on uninstall, like pip-installed libraries from PyPI and temporary files created by Python. Contains log files that can be cleared regularly.

Keep these subdirectories:

  • projects
  • projects3
  • scripts
  • scripts3
  • snippets
  • snippets3
  • notebooks

Can be cleared regularly:

  • log, contains runtime logs
  • cache, contains pip download caches

Can be cleared on uninstall:

  • .notebook
  • .qpyc
  • lib, contains pip installed libraries. This should not contain user content by default. But clearing the Python site-packages may break the kept user projects that depend on the presence of those libs.

Can be cleared on uninstall:

Selective deletion of subdirectories on uninstall, defined for a single package, is currently not supported.

I'll look into it though.

Does this share a folder with org.qpython.qpy3?

Just tested with the version from the Play Store. Yes, it shares the qpython directory.

Selective deletion of subdirs on uninstall is currently out of scope (not a simple code change), I'll add this to definitions which will cover complete removal (if "show desirable" is enabled) and include subdirs such such as cache/logs within the AppCleaner.
