One area where I do struggle to find apps on F-Droid is for image editing, both raster and vector.
Inkscape is brilliant. What are some of the difficulties that you invisage in bringing, Inkscape to Android/F-Droid?
I would expect that one would need to connect a keyboard and use a stylus for the most efficient use of the software. Image editing with fat fingers is not fun, even my little pinky finger
I read in the changlog, the latest release of Inkscape already has added support for two finger-zooming on touch screens, and now supports HiDPI screens. So that’s two positive steps!
Right-clicking might be possible with an extra button. Mouse scrolling might be achievable with two-finger scrolling.
The UI/side menus may benefit from some pairing back, depending on screen size. The top menu would likely become a menu that fills the screen, so the image that the person is working on might become darker and blurred while the menu is up on screen?
Their may need to be an intuitive way to switch from one file to another, there may be a max number of files openable at one time.
These are simple observations without looking at the build tools used, nor the build tools compatible with Android and vetted by F-Droid team, so perhaps Inkscape is completely incompatible.
I realise it would not be a simple task and that probably every single line of code would need to be examined in some way, and code that relates to the OS would need complete reworking.
I’m interested to hear thoughts from not just people in tune with app development, but also from users of Inkscape and designers.
Would anyone like to use Inkscape on a smart device? If so, do the above ideas sound like a realistic approach? I personally think that it would be great, and a stellar addition to the F-Droid.
