    Phoronix: Libhandy 0.0.7 Released For Building Adaptive/Mobile GTK Applications

    Libhandy is the library backed by Purism for use on their Librem 5 among other potential use-cases for allowing adaptive GTK+ widgets depending upon screen real estate. It's still a ways out from version 1.0, but libhandy 0.0.7 was released this weekend as the latest achievement...

      Looks like the silver bullet desperately needed for at least a decade. Who knows Canonical might try a mobile fundraiser again.

        Why didn't they simply take Ubuntu phone (Ubports) and continued that project?

          Because they're using GTK.

            If anyone from the Libhandy project is here, checkout Semantic Versioning: https://semver.org/ It's very popular, very sensible and gracefully, compatible with how package managers like apt handle versioning.

            Hint: if you were using Semantic Versioning, you'd probably be on 0.7.0 right now. Full details are clearly explained in the link above.

              This is actually really cool!

              Take a look at Web (Epiphany) if you got it installed. It works right now. You just resize the window and it adapts.

              But if you have to depend on third-party libraries then few are going to use it. Maybe it would be good if GTK 4 was designed to be responsive and with mobile in mind.

                paupav Because Purism’s appproach seems faster and better.

                  Why do you think it's needed? Lollypop, for example, has been adaptive for a long time now without the use of this library, so it was already possible without this library.

                    Also, Canonical's approach didn't use GTK.
