Kivy python cross-platform app framework?



  • Seems like the Kivy framework should be relatively easy to get working on UT, as it can be made to work with SDL2 it seems, or in the hopefully near future also with Wayland. It seems to work well on Android, iOS and Desktop and there was a previous attempt to get it working:
    https://github.com/kivy/kivy/wiki/Ubuntu-Touch

    https://kivy.org/

    Way above my skills to get it working, but there is a nice XMPP client for it, which I would try to port once this framework is supported :)

    Any one interested?



  • I'm fairly new and looking into Ubuntu Touch app development, but I don't really understand why Kivy apps wouldn't run on Ubuntu Touch if they were developed to run in Ubuntu? What exactly is the disconnect here?



  • Regular Ubuntu uses X11 and GNOME3, Ubuntu Touch uses neither.
