I am asking myself if a future UI concept exists at UBports? Don't get me wrong on that. It's not criticism and I do know that the resources of Ubports are very limited.
Nevertheless, I am wondering if in the next Mir version scopes just vanish and that's it? My hands are to small for an sidebar on the left side – using my Opo one handed. That's not even a joke. That's just reality. I could manage a flipped UI – sidebar on the right – which isn't Unity at all, I know.
Therefore the question occurred to me what happens when scopes vanish? Is there any feature from the bottom? Any new UI design?
In my opinion the UI design from Canonical was something new back in the days. Something refreshing, but since the beginning not much has chanced or evolved.
Like I said before I am well aware that Ubports has not much resources. But maybe with some creative approches there could be some help from the community. Sailfish OS e.g. has a patchmanager which allows the community to make small changes of the UI. In this way they help Jolla to develop the UI.
