Is there any new development for Android in Lazarus?
« on: June 20, 2021, 07:53:13 pm »
Just wonder...

Is there any improvements going on in Lazarus when it comes to develop for Android in Lazarus?

I feel that now, it is not good enough.
Want to use treeviews and TSringgrid.

There has been quite a lot of updates and fixes in LAMW, almost weekly ones for some time now. Maybe not show-stoppers but important nevertheless. And IIRC there has been quite a few updates to Laz4Android, though not as many as with LAMW.

All in all, I think Lazarus/FPC is already a very valid tool for Android development; witness, this "bragging" thread, for example ;D
Turbo Pascal 3 CP/M - Amstrad PCW 8256 (512 KB !!!) :P
Lazarus/FPC 2.0.8/3.0.4 & 2.0.12/3.2.0 - 32/64 bits on:
(K|L|X)Ubuntu 12..18, Windows XP, 7, 10 and various DOSes.

Study of LAMW for last five year clearly indicate that it improving day by day than
any other platform ,and it still easy to use as well as free.
I am always thankful to LAMW.
In future hope it will wise alternative to studio.

Don't see it as an alternative to Studio. ;D
See it as two halves of a whole.
Because ;
Studio and LAMW are a legendary duo that complement each other.

I looked at it.
The design on every app that is in the showcase is just crap compared to ordinary Android apps.
Just have to be 100% honest here ;D

But,  You can explore  "modern" design using material themes ....

There are some demos:

AppCompatCollapsingToolbarDemo1
AppCompatContinuousScrollableImageViewDemo1
AppCompatFloatingButtonDemo1
AppCompatNavigationDrawerDemo1
AppCompatNavigationDrawerDemo2
AppCompatRecyclerViewDemo1
AppCompatRecyclerViewDemo2
AppCompatTabLayoutDemo1
AppCompatTabLayoutDemo2
AppCompatViewPagerDemo1

But why are all these apps so bad in design? Don't they use this?

I would never ever use Android apps that looks as bad as these.

Just wonder why apps is created this way. It's a waste of time.

When i see designs like this, i get kind of angry :P

It's not about if i can create nice apps.

It's about the standard look.

These apps just don't look like the standard for any Android app.

I think it's more about the component design in Lazarus when it is ported to android.

Nothing about the users developing in Lazarus, but rather the standard in components.

Look at Flutter.

Just use any widgets, and it is created with super nice design easily.

Just an example.

Well...

Another word then. See or look or watch.  :)

When ported to Android, the standard components does not look any good as standard Android design.

No. LAMW is not standard components ported to Android .... LAMW is PURE android/java components!

The pascal code is just a wrapper to java android framework.... and you can see the java code being used

in any project created with LAMW and you can even open your project in Android Studio....

Then something is missing to be any good for developing with it.

Because it just looks like 90's design.

This could not be done with Flutter for instance.

It just look bad.
