I am tired of creepers blowing up my buildings. I'm not asking not about anti-creeper buildings, but a creeper proof city. My survival mode city is big but I constantly have to rebuild it. I'm playing Minecraft PE, by the way.

Make it out of Obsidian. – It'sNotALie. Aug 27 '13 at 11:27
Turning off mob griefing is the first thing I do in any game. Not sure if that is possible in the PE version or not. – au revoir Aug 27 '13 at 15:36

Depends how much work you are willing to put in :). It'sNotALie's suggestion of an obsidian city is viable but ugly, personally i keep light levels up using torches everywhere to prevent creepers spawning and then wall the city in so that they cannot enter from darker areas

Takes a lot of torches but it works, good luck :D

If you want, you can change the difficulty in the settings to peaceful. However, note that no more hostile mobs will spawn.

Creepers are afraid of ocelots

You can use this to your advantage and tie up a bunch of them around your city. While they are running from an ocelot, creepers will not explode. However, if your ocelot lags behind you and the creeper stops running they can still blow up.

There aren't currently ocelots in PE. – jcmeloni Sep 4 '13 at 16:55

Oobsidean walls it can't be destroyed by explosions and or use cacti

Put glowstone everywhere because they can't spawn where there is light.

Torches are your best bet. Obsidian is unlikely to spawn in Pocket Edition, so Glowstone is not very easy to get.

I researched the spawn rate, Obsidian has a 2.4% chance of spawning in Pocket Edition.
