Native appsΒΆ

The recommended way to build a native application on Ubuntu Touch is to use the Qt framework (current version since Xenial OTA-16 is Qt 5.12.9). You do not have to stick with the traditional C++<->QML Qt model, you can use also Python, Go, Rust or even Javascript for your backend.

Ubuntu Touch provides a subset of Qt QML components to ease the development of your app : QML API and Icons: Suru Icons, but you can also ship your cross platform app using standard Qt QML QtQuick2 components.

You can use Clickable to facilitate Packaging, deploying, publishing and tests .
