I hope you all enjoyed spending some time playing Sudoku yesterday, because we’re back to work again for another Ubuntu Core App Hack Day! As always you can find us in #ubuntu-app-devel on Freenode IRC from 9am to 9pm UTC to answer all of your app hacking questions, help get you setup and started contributing, or just generally discuss how to write Ubuntu Touch apps in general.
Today we leave behind yesterday’s light hearted fun and games and turn to the (only slightly) more serious work of reading news with the RSS Reader app! Another one of the original Core Apps, the RSS Reader got some unexpected designs from the Canonical Design team that converted it from the typical list-of-headlines to a beautiful organic grid seen here.
Because of these very recent and very major changes to the UI, there’s a lot of work to be done to get all of the previous functionality working again at the same level. For dogfooding the RSS Reader, these are our goals:
- Add a feed.
- Browse feeds. DONE!
- View a feed.
- Select an item to view from within the feed.
