I would like to learn mobile development, but with free software only. I don’t really know where to start, most of the documentation I found are focused on Android Studio. I prefer not to use it because of its license. Maybe you can show me a tutorial to begin without it? I would be happy to just make a “hello world” or a basic interface
I am considering using a framework too. The main advantage I see is that it would allow to build for multiple platforms, but I’m a bit afraid of all the dependency they may download during the build process.
Do you think that React Native, NativeScript or Kivy would be a good start? I like Python and Kivy seems fun.
I currently use Linux Mint but I could use whatever distribution on my dev laptop. I have a phone running LineageOs to test my app.
Thank you for your advice
