“Any news on Librem 5?” (When we have news to publish we publish it in its own post.)
“I have a support request.” (These are better handled with the Purism support team.)
“I want to air a personal grievance.” (You can do that in your own topic.)
Getting started with developing applications for a mobile platform can be a challenging task, especially when it comes to building and testing the application on the mobile device itself.
The Librem 5 makes its application development workflow extremely simple.
- You don’t need to worry about registering a developer account with some parent company.
- You don’t need to register your testing devices and ask the permission to a parent company just to be able to build and run your applications on those devices.
- You don’t need to “Jailbreak” your devices in order to access some restricted software or hardware features.
- And the best part is that you don’t need to worry about cross platform compiling because you can use the development tools directly on the phone.
The “quick start” video below that I made for the Librem 5 developers documentation demonstrates how quickly you can get up and running with making your own GTK applications on a Librem 5.
