Modular UIs for offline content

Philip Chimento

Endless devices include a lot of content downloaded from the internet so people without internet connections can have access to it. We create lots of apps to organize and present the content.

We are creating a "modular" system for putting together apps quickly, and it's built on GTK. (Think one level higher than GTK widgets.) I'll talk about what such a system should and shouldn't do, and about pushing some of GTK's limits.
