SDK images

  • Hi all!

    One important thing to have in order to make a developer's life easier (both app developers and ubports contributors) is an easy to use SDK. I think we'll later discuss about the various options, but one common trait which is needed to get good performance and reliability is being based on a single image (as opposed to retrieving thousands of debian packages via apt).
    The SDK team at Canonical was preparing such images, and putting them online at, where the client SDK could retrieve them from. I would suggest that we continue doing the same (and possibly fix the bugs that occasionally are found on such images!) on our own servers, as I suspect that Canonical might shutdown that subdomain at any time. At the address above you can find the script which was used to generate the images; I already downloaded a copy of it, but maybe we should put it somewhere in github.
