    Experiments with writing Android apps in Nim

  • Project mention: Compiling Rust for .NET, using only tea and stubbornness | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-08-29

    Tangentially related, I've written a barebones assembler for Android .apk files once (strictly speaking, the assembler is for .dex files, but it also comes with a set of tools to package and sign .apk files). It's written mainly in Nim and provides enough primitives to allow creating Java "stubs" for native .so libraries, so that .apk-s can be built in Nim WITHOUT JDK AT ALL. The Android NDK is still kinda needed/useful, though IIRC mainly for access to adb, and especially adb logcat (which you'll need A LOT for debugging if you try to use this contraption).

    I'd love to One Day™ Rewrite It In Rust.

    The .dex assembler itself is at: https://github.com/akavel/dali — you may like to check out the tests at: https://github.com/akavel/dali/tree/master/tests to see how using it looks like.

    An example project with a simple .apk written purely in Nim (NO JDK) is at: https://github.com/akavel/hellomello/tree/flappy (unfortunately, given Nim's poor packaging story, it's most probably already bitrotten to the extent that it can't be quickly and easily built & used out of the box). I recorded a presentation about this for an online Nim conference — see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wr9X5NCwPlI&list=PLxLdEZg8DR...

  • nkit-launcher

    Simple Android Launcher

  • Project mention: Ask HN: Have you coded any productivity software just for yourself? | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-05-05

    I built a RSS feed viewer (https://rss.nkit.dev/) that is also a podcast and youtube player. I wanted it to be my primary window to wide west of internet. It is still work in progress but I'm happy that I can listen to podcasts/watch_videos on it without being pulled into recommendations. To use, give it a link to raw text file with rss feed links on separate lines (I use github gist for this), I know I should use OPML when the time comes.

    I also built an android launcher (https://github.com/nkitsaini/nkit-launcher/) that has a single page grid of big icons as home page. I keep all non time consuming things on home-page and everything else I need to search for. I never see original icons of the app in my launcher.
