Ubuntu phone, sailfish OS and plasma active in discussion to share API's
Zoltán Balogh, developer at Canonical, confirmed in an open email on Wednesday that the discussion about APIs was underway, and invited anyone interested in QML to participate. “Clearly a productive collaboration between communities and companies would be something revolutionary,” he wrote.
The proposed cooperation attempts to not only simplify UI development, but establish long-term links between Canonical, Jolla and KDE staff. “There are also discussions underway regarding other aspects of the bigger puzzle such as common package formats and delivery strategies,” wrote Aaron Seigo from KDE on his blog.
“We are poised, should we keep our heads straight and our feet moving, to evolve that holiest of grails in the mobile space: an open and vendor neutral application development strategy built around the commonality of QtQuick and Linux,” he added.
