Is there any interest in a mobile framework for Elixir akin to React Native or Flutter?
I am really interested but not sure about the right approach. I’ve done the steps here (this post is 5 years old so they have to be adapted a bit) to get Erlang working on an Android device although it’s currently only working through adb shell as the phone isn’t rooted which is the only way I can see I could run it with Termux. Not sure what the next step would be to get Elixir running on top of that but that’s the plan.
Maybe for graphics, etc we could look at Scenic.
I also thought about dissecting the build systems of Flutter or React Native to see if we could use a similar approach.
In the end I would like to have a component based systems similar to RN and Flutter. It makes sense to use something like Phoenix Templates for this.
I think Elixir as a language makes a lot of sense for mobile given its superior take on concurrency.
If I dare to dream I think we could think about things like code push in the future as well.
Does anyone have experience with getting beyond just building Erlang for mobile? I’d be interested to know what worked.
