Developing for the pinephone?
#1
Hi,

I'm interested to develop software for pinephone. I dont know much about the phone.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum, but is there a thread/forum/wiki for developing, not the OS itself, but apps.

I read that pinephone can run Qt5 is this true? Is this the Ubuntu version?

Is it possible, for example, to compile on a desktop pine edition (or otherwise), then copy onto the phone. Ideally, a Qt5 binary.

Thanks for any help to get me started!

I thought I saw a thread about making apps for mobian but I can't seem to find it now.

As for Ubuntu Touch they use qml and their util spits out click packages which can be uploaded to their store.

In almost all cases, other than mobian, you would be best to find and use the forums/chats the devs hang out at.
