Friends and funders, we did it!
We reached our $50K stretch goal — that means we’re now at over 500% of our original goal.
Introducing Kinoma Studio for Linux
With this stretch goal, we’ve officially committed to developing Kinoma Studio for Linux. With Kinoma Studio for Linux, you’ll be able to develop and directly deploy to both Kinoma Create and Android devices from popular desktop/laptop Linux distributions.
To create a fully realized Kinoma Studio experience, here’s what we’ll be bringing to Linux:
- Kinoma Studio IDE — The IDE itself is based on Eclipse, which gives us a significant head start on a Linux version. But of course implementation details are always interesting, and this effort will still require some significant engineering and testing resources.
- Kinoma Simulator — The simulator works with the Kinoma Platform Runtime to provide a simulated device development experience for devices including Kinoma Create, Android and iOS phones and tablets, and even simulated sensors and other components.
- Kinoma Platform Runtime — The core of everything we do, KPR will get a version for Linux desktop/laptop distributions to enable the simulator and IDE.
Along with direct support for Kinoma Create and Android, you can even develop for iOS using Kinoma Studio for Linux — final packaging will require Kinoma Studio for Mac OS X.
We can’t thank you enough for your support, and we’re really excited about extending Kinoma Studio support to Linux.
