  • @syper sorry I don't get what you meant?

    I mean that Launcher Modular must have a different way to interact and not be content with what ubports offers.
    that's why we try to do better than a simple foreground.

    Sorry for my bad english i'm french.



  • @syper I really hope you find a solution to keep it working with the coming update to unity - It's a far better user experience compared to a 'standard' app drawer with just the unity side bar (never been a big fan of unity anyway 😉 - neither on the desktop)
    Keep up your good work and fingers crossed you can solve the problems that might occur



  • @syper have you talked to Dalton about that?
    @UniSuperBox what is the best way to integrate the launcher modular efforts into unity? Did I get it right (from our last discussion) that you like the "widget part" more than the app launching part?

    Not yet but there is still time before Edge

    I think if you swipe from left to right it should open instead of the app drawer and if you press the unity button the "normal" app drawer opens. I hope you understand what I mean. 😓

    Yes I understand, it's a good idea! to see if this can be do



  • @syper Or you leave the app drawer like it is and swipe it up from the bottom. The bottom is "empty" anyway. This way it would be more like an extra feature and you dont have to decide one or another.

    Maybe thats easier to implement as well.

    edit: If I am thinking about it - I am travelling and a little bit bored 🙂 - I see for the bottom side 3 possible behaviors.

    1. it works like the top menu. You open it by swiping up and when move to one side or another you select the side/scope as well

    2. You swipe it up like a “normal” launcher. It could be appear more like a translucent overlay.

    3. You tap once or twice on the homescreen, then at the bottom the “scope“ symbol panel appeas at the bottom and by pressing it the "scope side" opens.

    Just to give a little input. Maybe you find something you like. 🙂



  • I'm thinking on a desktop-phone convergence and IMHO I like the drawer as is now, but it would make sense if launcher modular could be integrated in the drawer as the old scopes from Unity 7 was integrated.
    The other way it would be to find a way to integrate it on de desktop background working as a widget, It would fit correctly as a widget on a desktop?
    It is just an a Idea, since i'm not a developer i don't know if it could be done ^_^'



  • Thank you for your ideas I would look at what is possible to do.
    Thanks also for the donations.
