This Week in Linux 109: Flutter Apps to Linux, 3GB RAM PinePhone, Mobian, Stop Using BountySource!

Originally published at:


Well Flutter Apps maybe cool, but I don’t have ubuntu to try it out only Fedora and Manjaro.
this looks more for mobile apps then desktop apps, probably interest is the Linux mobile market.
Purism, PinePhone and few others + all the Linux Based OS for mobile, Linux Mobile in 2020 is here.

Thanks for this, @MichaelTunnell. Love the idea of a Debian-based mobile OS. Not sure how mature this project is, or in fact which mobile OS project is most mature. As I’ve been seriously considering working on UBPorts / apps for it as mentioned after your previous show, I’m particularly keen to hear how Flutter may be supported on that platform. For me one of the main attractions of Java was that it ran on all major OSes of its time (Windows, MacOS and Linux) though that’s been badly spoilt by lack of support on iOS and Android of late. A single unifying technology, finally, would be very welcome indeed. I’m not sure how successful Qt was on mobile platforms, and I would prefer to learn that for now for UBPorts, but certainly I’m going to keep an eye on Flutter, especially if it’s C++ based.
