Retroshare for Android – Update 1

It’s been a while since my last post. For a reminder, my job is to create a functional Retroshare application for Android. As in May, also in this period of time I focused on the visual aspect of the application, but this time from the technical side.

It started with choosing the technology in which the application was to be written. Selected framework should provide an easy way to combine the frontend with libretroshare, have an active development community and be cross-platform so that in the future it can be used to easily transfer application to iOS as well. One the basis of these criteria, Flutter was chosen.

So far main screens has been implemented and can be seen below:

There is still a lot of work to be done on the visual side and I will be working on it in the near future. In addition, I will explore the addition of asynchronous messaging and storage of message history to libretroshare.
