Meet Hawaii, the Wayland QtQuick based desktop
Hawaii is a Wayland and QtQuick based desktop environment with few dependencies aiming at desktop and mobile convergence. It is primarily used by Maui, a Linux system with atomic upgrades and bundles. This talk introduces the project to those who don't know it yet, presents the progress that have been made and future directions.
Traditional desktop systems with mouse and keyboard have different requirements compared to mobile platforms with touch input. With QtQuick, desktop and mobile convergence becomes easier to implement not only for applications but also within desktop environments. Hawaii is designed from the beginning to have different UX for different needs. The Hawaii desktop environment is part of the Maui project. Maui is a Linux system aiming at improving user experience with atomic upgrades and bundles instead of packages, but can (and it's encouraged to) be packaged for other distributions. This talk introduces the project to those who don't know it yet, presents the progress that have been made, and future directions.
