Could it be possible to run luna-next on sailfishOS? As a non developer , the underlying technology looks similar to me: qml qt5?

If someone could get the card stacking/grouping capacities of Luna applied to Active Covers???

Those covers are like cards in webOS in that they run in the background when minimized to "card view", plus - if the cover/app supports it - there are toggles usable in "card mode" to interact with the app. Not every app has toggles nor needs them; thus not every cover needs to be fully seen.

Unlike webOS cards they can't be stacked/arranged/reordered... They auto arrange in a grid layout: left to right adding rows as needed. Last app used is always top left and the app positions switch as you use and minimize various apps.

Using the card metaphor of Luna makes more sense from a multitasking point of view. That's one of the things I loved about Luna CE on TouchPad. Like apps grouped with like in batches - or "hands" of cards. Easily cycling between each card in a "hand" or going back to the home screen to pick up a new "hand" to work with. It just made it easier to get things done. Everything was placed where you wanted it.

OK but LunaNext does more than just UI, it will also interact with various hardware bits. Lots of LunaCE features aren't there yet but it's being worked on. The rewrite of UI, keyboard and sorting tons of bugs took a lot of time. Going forwarded adding the LunaCE features will be quite high on the list :-)

I just plucked out one specific from siggi_digital's very vague OP...

I'd rather my latest forays into OwOS worked better. But as a tech adventurist who has tried Sailfish on the N4 I can definitely see where some of the UI from Luna would benefit Sailfish multitasking.

Sorry but i couldn't be more specific. For me as non techie it looks like its the same as using KDE or Gnome on my Debian installation

luna-next is more or less "just" a linux application, so for all the linux-based OS the answer if you can run luna-next on them is probably "yes". The issue is that you'll have to put so much energy into connecting it with all the stuff around it that it needs to work out, that it probably won't do anything useful and just crashes... forget these ideas and wait for the android-version to be finished... that'll give you plenty of HW to ponder upon, wouldn't it?

WebOS Ports for Nexus 7 2012 WiFi (Grouper) and Nexus GSM (Maguro) is based on CyanogenMod 10.1 + specific customizations for webOS Theoretically this could allow WebOS Ports to run on any Android device for which there is a CM 10.1 build available. It just takes a little time to create the build, but it's not very difficult.

If it were, you'd know it! There would be more fuss than for webOS TVs! ;-)

Not yet but a phone app is being worked on, we just need a good messaging app as well :-) Afterwards it could be used as a (still buggy) daily driver I'd say ;-)

Would it be possible to put OwebOS on on a Verizon Gnex?

Theoretically yes Someone would need to create the necessary bits for Toro. I assume hardware wise it's similar to the Tuna. Just telephony support might be tricky in the future, since I'm not sure oFono supports CDMA.

Dang. Hopefully later on they'll support it, after all the current problems go away
