Librem 5 ❤️ GNOME 3.32

I am glad to announce that the tooling I am working on since the beginning of the year is ready to be used!

Thanks to new features introduced into libhandy 0.0.3 and 0.0.4 and thanks to a few fixes to Adwaita in GTK+ 3.24.1, you can make GTK+ 3 apps adaptive to work both on the desktop and on the upcoming GNOME-based Librem 5 phone.

We are early in the GNOME 3.32 release schedule and the Librem 5 will be released a bit after it, so if you want your apps to work on the Librem 5, now is the best time: use libhandy 0.0.4 and up, use GTK+ 3.24.1 and up and target GNOME 3.32! A few apps like Fractal, Podcasts, Calls and Chatty are already using libhandy's adaptive capabilities, and other apps are working on their adaptive transition like Contacts, Games, Geary and Settings (all are works in progress). libhandy is available in Debian Unstable and Arch's AUR repository, and I wish it would be in Fedora already to let GNOME Settings' CI pass.

For the moment, libhandy is a GTK+ 3 widget library, we will ultimately port it to GTK+ 4 and relevant widgets will be submitted to GTK+ 4. Theme creators, for adaptive apps to work well with your theme please apply similar chages to the ones I applied to Adwaita (look for changes by Adrien Plazas between 3.24.0 and 3.24.1).

  1. There's an error with the thumbnail; it's not redirecting to the .webm file (at least for me).

    1. Woops, it was a last minute addition I wanted to delete before publishing as I noticed it didn't work as expected, but I forgot… thasnks! :)

  2. This all looks cool. Out of curiosity though, would it still be possible to use the full-sized versions of these apps on the phone? For use with a stylus in landscape-mode, for example.

    1. It's all adaptive, all depends on the window's size and not the device type, so it all depends on the app's size requirements and the available screen size.

    2. Nice! That sounds like a smart solution. So if I just turn down the scaling factor I should get apps behaving like on a desktop. I'm really excited for a Librem 5 phone now. :) Just wished it had a built-in stylus and it would be a perfect device.

  3. On the day of your test, pair it with Zydot shampoo, which we shall discuss next. If your test is in 24 hours, all you need to do is shampoo your hair as many times as possible, letting it sit lathered in your hair for at least 15 minutes during each wash. >> Visit the Official Website of Aloe Toxin Rid for the Best Discount As we have mentioned earlier, though Aloe Toxin Rid shampoo is considered the best shampoo for beating a hair follicle drug test, pairing it with Zydot Ultra Clean Shampoo can increase and even double its efficacy. This is because the mechanisms of both products complement each other perfectly. Rather, it tricks the drug test by fueling up the urine sample with ample proteins and vitamins. The THC might remain in your body, but it will possibly not show up in the drug test’s lab report.

Games 3.30: Features Overload

With a new version of GNOME always comes a new version of Games, and this new version comes packed with new features, bug fixes and developer experience improvements. Install Games 3.30 Platforms View and Developers View As part of his GSoC project, Saurabh implemented two new views of your games collection: one filtering games by their developers and another one filtering them by their platforms. To know more, read Saurabh's Segregating views and Description view articles on his blog. To implement this he needed to work a lot on the Grilo front, check his explanations in his Adding self registering keys to lua-factory article. He also started to work on a new page displaying many details about a game like the number of players and a description, it was unfortunately not ready on time for this release but will hopefully land in 3.32. Gamepad Navigation You can now navigate the UI with your gamepads! Select your collection view with the shoulder buttons, browse

libhandy 0.0.10

libhandy 0.0.10 just got released, and it comes with a few new adaptive widgets for your GTK app. You can get this new version here . The View Switcher GNOME applications typically use a GtkStackSwitcher to switch between their views. This design works fine on a desktop, but not so well on really narrow devices like mobile phones, so Tobias Bernard designed a more modern and adaptive replacement — now available in libhandy as the HdyViewSwitcher . In many ways, the HdyViewSwitcher functions very similarly to a GtkStackSwitcher : you assign it a GtkStack containing your application's pages, and it will display a row of side-by-side, homogeneously-sized buttons, each representing a page. It differs in that it can display both the title and the icon of your pages, and that the layout of the buttons automatically adapts to a narrower version, depending on the available width. We have also added a view switcher bar, designed to be used at he bottom of the window: HdyView
