    Vistaus Most of Purism’s work is already upstreamed or intended for upstream. Anyone can use it. Including Canonical.

      But there already was upstream support for adaptive apps, how else would apps like Lollypop have created adaptable interfaces? That's what I'm saying. So no need to use this library for that. I mean: you could, it might be nice to have another option, but I fail to see the necessity.

        You technically don't *need* a library like libhandy, but it helps to abstract out a lot of common patterns found in adaptive applications, thereby making them easier to create.

          I wonder why Purism didn't consider to use Hildon for their "mobilization" of GTK.

          Nokia developed a complete first pen and later touch based mobile interface using GTK2 running on the N7/8/900 tablet/phones before they switched to Qt for the N9 :

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hildon

          There seems to be even a GTK3 port available at https://github.com/fremantle-gtk3 and some PostmarketOS people use it.

          Also hildon-gtk was supposed to be upstreamed a long time ago so did this fine work somehow get lost during the transition from GTK2 to GTK3?

            mick3 It is a good question. There can be many reasons to disregard prior code. Cost of porting and maintaining prior code can be higher than just writing new stuff.
