digitalmars.D.learn - GtkD on android?

reply FoxyBrown <Foxy Brown.IPT> writes:
With LDC's new ability to do android/arm, we are missing the 
ability to do GUI's? Can any of the current D solutions work such 
as GtkD or QtD? I'm looking for something somewhat lightweight, 
easy to use(I find GtkD a bit funky but it does seem to work and 
is relatively easy once one gets through the basics). I think 
having a GUI builder is crucial though as it makes it so much 
easier in the long run. Glade is a bit funky but functional and 
works.

Ideally I'd like to be able to make portable apps that just work 
across the board(mac, linux, windows, android) without much 
hassle.

Mike said maybe later, when I asked him in January: http://forum.dlang.org/post/o4rq0i$dur$1 digitalmars.com In the meantime, you can try DlangUI, as Seb pointed out, but I get the impression it's not touch-optimized, just like Gtk.

And if you want something lightweight, the complete GTK stack is probably not what you are looking for. -- Mike Wey
