Indetermined Directions Exist. Always. Somewhere.
chw 2014-03-22: a scratchpad of things which theoretically could be implemented in AndroWish but are far beyond my knowledge, craft, power, and not well thought most likely. Feel free to add other (un)thinkable, (un)implementable, (un)reachable ideas to this list:
Problem of point 1: WebKit does proper I18N font rendering, AndroWish (X11 heritage) not at all. Therefore, precondition for point 1 is to get font rendering proper (on X11, too, of course). Unfortunately, this is far beyond my mental capabilities. I need your help, community! Now!
Problems of points 2 to 4: See sentences 3, 4, and 5 of remark to point 1.
Problem at all: See Why AndroWish Was A Bad Idea
EF About point 1: Couldn't a (specific?) version of AndroWish simply open a WebKit view (and nothing else), pointing to a webserver implemented in Tcl in AndroWish. That would allow to "draw" the UI using modern techniques while still allowing us to write the core of the application in Tcl (and still provide access to the Android platform through the borg command). Just dreaming?
