    Lightbulb KDE - Kirigami - any views and/or opinions?

    The KDE community have publicly released the "Kirigami" framework: <https://dot.kde.org/2016/08/10/kdes-...public-release>
    Kirigami, KDE’s lightweight user interface framework for mobile and convergent applications, which was first announced in March, is now publicly released! This framework allows Qt developers to easily create applications that run on most major mobile and desktop platforms without modification (though adapted user interfaces for different form-factors are supported and recommended for optimal user experience). It extends the touch-friendly Qt Quick Controls with larger application building blocks, following the design philosophy laid out in the Kirigami Human Interface Guidelines.
    There's also an Android page in Google's App-Store: <https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...irigamigallery>
    There's also a private build for this framework in the openSUSE repositories: <https://software.opensuse.org/packag..._term=Kirigami>
    kirigami
    A set of Qt Quick components to support the Kirigami HIG
    The Kirigami user interface components for Qt Quick, which were created to support the Kirigami Human Interface Guidelines. The goal of which is to help to create enticing, pleasant applications which have a consistent look and feel across many form factors, without attempting to create a one-size-fits-all type system.
    Yes, yes, I know, "early days" but, does anyone have any views and/or opinions on the current planning/roadmap for the introduction of this "lightweight" Desktop Environment into the openSUSE distribution?

    It is available in KDE:Frameworks5 since a few days:
    http://software.opensuse.org/package/kirigami

    Maybe it will be forwarded to Factory/Tumbleweed too, I don't know.

    But just to avoid misunderstandings:
    Kirigami is a set of components to build mobile Apps for mobile devices (like Smartphones and Tablets).
    So mainly interesting for developers not end-users, especially on a desktop system.

    And currently (at least to my knowledge) the only "application" that uses kirigami is peruse, a comic book viewer based on Okular.
