a Android-Qt port of the infamous kbreakout arkanoid-like game
There the sources: https://github.com/thypon/xbreakout
There the APK: https://github.com/downloads/thypon/xbreakout/abreakout.apkAugust 26, 2012 at 7:56 am #3333
Thanks for posting the apk. I built Ministro yesterday and looked everywhere for an apk to test it with. The game works well but the controls are not good. Any plans to add buttons or accelerometer?September 6, 2012 at 6:58 pm #3724
Buttons or accelerometer support are not in program until Android-QT exits the alpha state. Maybe one month or two.
Non destructive patches are welcomed.
Thanks for the intereset.September 6, 2012 at 7:17 pm #3726
That isn’t completely necessary , but it is annoying not to be able to see the bat as it is covered by one’s finger. Do you know much about building these apps? Is it necessary to have the Necessitas SDK to build them? One obstacle I can see is future SDKs breaking old apps, which is a bit of problem for us, but of course the standard SDK isn’t immune from this either.September 9, 2012 at 12:00 pm #3863

You can put your finger on the top of the screen, the bar will follow it perpendicularly.

Of course you have to.
If you want to build this app you have to create a new necessitas android-qt project and import the generic.pro in XXX.pro
I can provide my necessitas project if you need.

Qt is a very stable and cross-platform library. Obviously can’t gain much popularity if it breaks ABIs so often. If you are worried about the QT-android port, Bogdon Vatra, the main developer has assured he wouldn’t break the ABIs. The ministro service downloads the right Qt-libraris the first time you run a necessitas built application. If you don’t trust it you can always build the apps with Qt statically linked.

That’s good to know and I did eventually discover that way of putting my finger at the top of the screen 🙂 . So I hope we will be able to include the sdk as part of our setup and if not then we will provide binaries for the f-droid. I trust the sdk can do everything via the text shell, though when I was researching that I didn’t see instructionsSeptember 14, 2012 at 10:25 am #3975
Hang on though, there isn’t any source for Android bit.September 14, 2012 at 3:12 pm #3979
i published also the android part. There is only a little workaround by me. The remaining part is a vanilla necessitas project. You can use it or generate a project dinamically every time you compile it, including the generic.pro present in xbreakout project.September 14, 2012 at 3:50 pm #3981
Here the source. It can be also self-generated every time you compile it.September 14, 2012 at 3:52 pm #3982
Yes the ministro was difficult to find and in addition the package id has changed at v3.0 i think and the website didn’t show the correct current tag. Also the ministro config app has a mismatching package id and goes to download ministro from market when it starts up. So it took a while to figure that out but it builds without problems.
Now, we can’t say when Necessitas SDK will be supported by F-droid, especially since there is no documentation for command line operation. But in the mean time I would like to include this apk as an example, especially as there are no other necessitas apks that I can find. But that depends on what our project leader thinks , who prefers to build everything from source.September 14, 2012 at 4:01 pm #3983
Would you mind making the license clear in the root directory?September 14, 2012 at 6:00 pm #3984

I moved the rest of this thread to another topic in the Development forum http://f-droid.org/forums/topic/native-apps-and-f-droid . (Renamed to Qt apps and F-droid)October 31, 2012 at 2:15 pm #4894
I think F-droid.org is moving a way from hosting apks not built from source . It could be a long time before we get support for the Qt sdk so in the mean-time , I encourage you to host the apk in an F-droid compatible repo somewhere, perhaps alongside other Qt for Android apps. It will get publicized here , if not included as a repo within the client. see http://f-droid.org/manual for details.November 9, 2012 at 9:49 am #5079
