The Android port is just about usable. Still, we have some fun todo items to improve it.
- Android app permission denial on startup
- S3 doesn't work (at least to Internet Archive: "connect: does not exist (connection refused)")
- Get app into Google Play and/or FDroid
Don't make app initially open terminal + webapp, but go to a page that allows opening the webapp or terminal.
Possibly, switch from running inside terminal app to real standalone app. See https://github.com/neurocyte/android-haskell-activity and https://github.com/neurocyte/foreign-jni.
I have seen an assistant thread crash with an interrupted system call when the device went to sleep while it was running. Auto-detect and deal with that somehow.
- Make git stop complaining that "warning: no threads uspport, ignoring --threads"
- git does not support http remotes. To fix, need to port libcurl and allow git to link to it.
- getEnvironment is broken on Android https://github.com/neurocyte/ghc-android/issues/7 and a few places use it. I have some horrible workarounds in place.
- Get local pairing to work. network-multicast and network-info don't currently install.
- Get test suite to pass.
git cloneof a local repo fails on android for some reason.
- Make app autostart on boot, optionally. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1056570/how-to-autostart-an-android-application
- The app should be aware of power status, and avoid expensive background jobs when low on battery or run flat out when plugged in.
- The app should be aware of network status, and avoid expensive data transfers when not on wifi. This may need to be configurable.
- glacier and local pairing are not yet enabled for Android.
- The "Files" link doesn't start a file browser. Should be possible to do on Android via intents, I suppose?
- Adding removable drives would work, but the android app is not in the
appropriate group to write to them.
WRITE_MEDIA_STORAGEpermission needed. Added to AndroidManifest, but did not seem to be used. Googleing for it will find a workaround that needs a rooted device.
