Cross-compilation for ARM shouldn't be a problem [1]. According Wikipedia the OS uses Qt5 and there is an alpha release for Qt 5.1 [3]. But I would lower my hopes ;-).

Today I finally got to documenting Free Pascal development for Ubuntu Phone. The first article is about writing console mode applications. Next one will cover GUI development with Lazarus. I am very excited as I also managed to solve the problem with OSK (on-screen keyboard) inside a GTK app running directly on the phone (not via Libertine). Stay tuned.

today's first article available here:

my newest blog post on Lazarus development for Ubuntu Phone!

Now the absolute mind-blowing part: what is the default, standard, encouraged and promoted way to make apps for Ubuntu Phone? well, it is the Ubuntu SDK off course. Have you seen it maybe? Perhaps tried? well, I have. And let me tell you this about it:

1. IDE is nowhere as good as Lazarus IDE
2. You can't run it (the IDE) ON your Ubuntu Phone
3. Once you've written an app, you can't also compile it for Windows, MacOS and bunch of other operating systems just like that
4. PERIOD.

So that is why Free Pascal and that is why Lazarus. Write once, compile everywhere. Enjoy!
