It’s been just 10 days since the Fyne project was announced and in that time we’ve had a lot of support! The IRC channel, which we added only a week ago, now has a core group of developers helping to discuss and guide the design of the toolkit. The website is up and running to help visitors understand what the project is about and see our progress. For the more developer oriented there is now a walking skeleton project which is tracking progress towards our first milestone.
In terms of a quick summary we have picked Go as the main language for development and API. The rendering pipeline we are using is EFL, though the details will be hidden completely from the Fyne APIs. Lastly we decided on the use of the Cassowary algorithm for layout - giving an experience similar to the iOS AutoLayout.
The Enlightenment IDE (Edi) has been updated for Go syntax and build lifecycle so anyone already working on EFL apps can continue using the same tooling for now :).
Happy coding and come back soon!
We're excited to hear from anyone interested in the project. Whether it's to find out more, provide suggestions or to get involved - drop us a line!
