mgwt 0.5a

About one and a half years ago I started developing applications for the iPhone using GWT and phonegap. At the moment GWT is not quite a fit for mobile development so I had to adjust the tool and do some ground work.

After using mgwt for my personal mobile developement I had some great responses from colleagues telling me to open source my work. It took me quite a while to start sharing because I am one of those persons who like to show of with perfect code, but at some point I realized that I should be sharing as soon as possible to get some feedback.

So the first wave of open sourcing consists of:
  1. the GWT Events (touchstart, touchmove, touchend, touchcancel, animationend, transistionend) integrated with the GWT event System
  2. Anitmations integrated with GWT MVP
  3. Styling for iPhone
  4. Lots and lots of widgets

I also have a theme for iPads and Android which I would like to share at some later point (they are just not ready yet). I am very excited about mgwt and hope to find some people that are exited as well about developing mobile apps with gwt.

Any feedback is very much welcome!

So if you like to see what mgwt is like check out www.m-gwt.com

  2. Thanks for sharing this with us. It's very helpful. I would be interested to know more about how to go about converting an existing GWT app to work under mgwt+PhoneGap. Would you recommend to start by creating an iPhone/iPad web interface in GWT and then using mgwt to run under iOS? Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

  3. Hi Jean,

    if you have an existing GWT App writting with GWT MVP Pattern, converting the app is straight forward: Writing a new View Implemenation and Providing an animationmapper for place change events. I am gonna write a blog post on this subjets very soon.

    If you have more questions feel free to ask them in the newly opened mgwt usergroup.
