Hi all. And Happy New Year.
I'm working at Wire, an encrypted messenger,. Our Android client app is written in Scala. We're slowly migrating it to Kotlin.
I want to make a conference talk about the attempts of writing Scala on Android - how it went, what were the problems, what can still be done in the future.
Especially, @pfn, if you have some time and want to talk about this, I'd like to ask you some questions about your experiences. But everyone else, please ping me if you want to talk. I will be checking this channel every few days, but you can also find me on Twitter, where I live, basically. https://twitter.com/makingthematrix
By the way, I decided to dig a bit deeper into JavaFX widgets. I want towrite more examples, each one testing one of the main features and Android app should have. The first one (well, second, if I count the dummy one) is based on "Fifty States" from Gluon Mobile samples. It's a scrollable list of European Union countries and Scotland. The flags of countries are being downloaded from Wikipedia in the run time and stored in a file cache.
I also added some notes about problems I faced, how you can write this from scratch, and what next I want to do.
