Here is the first publicly available build of #Lagrange for Android. It is an ALPHA build; things are still broken.
Let me know if you can get it up and running on your (32-bit ARM) Android devices. Future builds will include x86 and 64-bit ARM binaries as well.
@jk Works smooth on my xiaomi redmi for an alpha version! Thank you!
Small bug report: Crash when opening images.
@jk It opens and works but crashes when trying to open settings. The scrolling and selection feel off, probably because they aren't native.
@jk The acceleration of the scrolling is different than everything else and the overscroll at the bottom feels more like iOS than android.
@easrng You’re absolutely right. There is zero native UI code here, and the mobile variant has been thus far tuned only for iOS.
In the future I’ll adapt it closer to Android behavior, but there are bigger fish to fry first.
@jk installed fine on my #Xiaomi #MiA1, and loaded @kelbot 's gem-port just fine. :)
(Did complain about missing fonts, even after installing all available font-packs, but that's probably a matter of finding the right font that actually has that glyph. IIRC I have the same issue on Windows anyway.)
@jk it did crash the first time I tried to save a bookmark; next time went fine though.
May some kind of crash report could be a handy option?
I have some more UX suggestions, but since this is just an early build, I'll just first await its further development. :)
@FiXato Oh yeah, it did crash once for me too when bookmarking.
I’ll look into crash reporting, that would indeed be very useful info.
back button indeed was not always working as expected, for instance in settings submenus I expected to go back to the previous menu, rather than closing settings altogether.
spreading the word (in Spanish) about this Alpha release:
@jk installs fine on my pixel 2.
there is a bug where extra padding left between the bottom bar and the android navbar.
@jk Nice! Crash-wise it's been stable for me after opening images, setting bookmarks, and installing new fonts.
The most notable things that are broken are the extra navbar padding, selection sometimes feeling off from where you tapped, and the back button closing the app. Not bad for a first alpha.
@M0YNG A few people have reported misalignments. I suspect the touch coordinates are being calculated based on the full screen (incl. software buttons) and not the app window area…
@jk that feels right. If I have a list of links and I tap on the second it will visit the first, which is approximately the same difference as the height of my phone's status bar
@jk Runs smoothly, so far even no crashes. The only issue I can see is that tapping is a bit off on the vertical axis (you have to press lower than the actual button is).
Really hoping to see more Gemini alternatives on Android. 👍
