Apollo11 is a framework project for elementary OS, hopefully good enough I can start eating the dogfood soon.
The ultimate goal is to develop a skeleton to save developers starting from tabula rasa for every new project and allow them to expect to be able to publish from T minus zero.
- CMake build setup.
- Requires only elementary-sdk.
- Window with HeaderBar.
- Window position saving and GSettings support.
- AppData.xml for publishing in appcenter.
- Granite.Application about window.
- HeaderBar buttons example.
- Notifications ready to go.
install the elementary OS SDK
sudo apt install elementary-sdk
clone the Apollo11 repository
git clone https://github.com/Nine-H/apollo11.git cd apollo11
build the project
mkdir build && cd build cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ../ make sudo make install
The best way to learn is to start reading, so I've tried to keep Apollo11 super light. You should check out hello_houston.vala to add widgets to the window and header.vala to add them to the headerbar, You can start changing your app to use a different name in apollo11.vala but I'll probably eventually make a graphical configurator to do this. This app also serves as a useful reference for backporting basic features and a build system for your own app/hack/shellcommand/w/e.
