#221 [Android] More native-feeling UI/UX?

Open
opened 10 maanden geleden by johndoe · 3 comments

Hello,

I acknowledge that this is a prototype.

As far as I can tell, the GUI framework used is based on Qt (?), does Qt allow a more natural UI/UX feel, is that desired and if so, would switching to another framework such as Flutter be a worthwhile consideration?

Thanks.

I found this: https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-35081

I’m investigating further on how we can achieve a (better?) native look and feel on Android.

This, but the screenshots show really old Android feel. They mention that you can specify an Android theme inside the manifest, to be tested!

Thanks for the feedback!

Qt does have a theme called “Material” that (very) roughly emulates Material Design. However, we pretty quickly moved away from Qt’s theming system and so we can no longer easily switch to it.

I do want to have a more native-feeling Android UI eventually, but it will have to wait until after some currently-in-progress upgrades to our layout manager. I’m also personally strongly opposed to silicon valley design prescriptivism, so there will always be some push and pull over just how much we want to comply with OS guidelines. Cwtch’s UI is intended to be an exercise in consentful design, so expect to see a lot more UI/UX customization options in the future (once we’ve finished laying the groundwork).
