I started this journey because I wanted to learn declarative UI programming and build a few native apps for myself. But the further I go, the more concerned I get. Maybe I should stop spenging my time on it?
@gleb each hour spent developing for Apple devices is an hour supporting the battle against the right to repair.
I'm sure you could find similar UI paradigms elsewhere?
@neauoire Flutter is similar, but I am not a fan of Google either. And I doubt their phones are easier to repair.
It would be great if there was an accessible UI framework for building native applications for pocket and desktop computers.
@neauoire I remember reading about it on Wikipedia a while ago.
I will read more, maybe it can solve my problems and keep my mind in peace 😅.
Thank you very much 🙏
@gleb good luck! Rekka and I went down that road a couple of months ago looking for "what comes after Electron", and we found nothing. But maybe the landscape has changed, in any case, I hope you find something that works for you :)
@neauoire thank you! It has to change at some point, there is a limit for how long bloatware can keep bloating. Or at least I hope there is one. Have you studied Haxe during your “what comes after Electron” research?
@gleb yup :) It wasn't a good candidate for us, but it seemed well rounded and a mature graphical devkit for multiplatform applications development. The community is very active.
@eris @eris @neauoire maybe I was wrong about pixels, that statement was just an assumption. In any case, one vendor is better in privacy, another in repairability. I will probably keep my 4 years old iPhone as long as I can. By the time I can't fix it, better Linux-based smartphones may already be available.
