Web apps for Ubuntu Touch.

closeDetta inlägg skrevs för 6 år 5 månader 16 dagar sedan, och om det är av karaktären åsikt, så reserverar jag mig för att jag mycket sannolikt kan ha ändrat den sedan dess. Är det en guide så kan det också vara så att det inte längre är applicerbart eller fungerar. Dock vill jag inte ta bort, eller orkar sortera, gamla inlägg och därför är det kvar.

I got my Galaxy Nexus last week and immediately installed Ubuntu Touch on it, and have run it ever since. I really like the way to jump between applications in the UI, but don’t really like having many tabs running on a smart phone/tab – also I don’t want to input the site I want to check out every time I know what I want to do. Therefore I started to create apps for Ubuntu Touch just like the one for Twitter and Facebook: a simple launcher that opens a new browser window with a set URL.

I started two night ago with testing and yesterday I started to setup and build packages for all of them (moved to let Launchpad to the building now, instead). Today I’ve added a few more.

I started out with the ones I need personally:

  • Swedbank (Swedish bank)

  • Ping Pong (app for Swedish Universities)

  • Wikipedia

  • Västtrafik (Public transit where I live)

  • tv.nu (Whats on TV right now – Swedish channels)

  • IMDb

  • SR (Swedish Radio)

  • SJ (Train)

  • Wunderlist (todo service)

Might be more… they’re building.

They’re all in by PPA: https://launchpad.net/~danielholm/+archive/touch-apps

You can find the code here: https://code.launchpad.net/~danielholm

In the coming days I will post a simple guide the describes how you can do this too – it’s really simple. The only thing that’s hard, really, is the packaging stuff and setting up your environment, which isn’t that hard either.
