GNU Smalltalk Android bindings are ready!

So now you can use GNU Smalltalk to build native Applications on Android devices. Stefan Krecher announced the availability of a binding for GNU Smalltalk to Android via SL4A, a set of APIs wrapped.

Essentially it’s no big thing – just a few lines of Smalltalk-code: i created a GNU Smalltalk star Package including the “Android” class that gives access to the full Android API via SL4A.

This binding includes the ability to drive the Android GUI frwamework, so a GNU Smalltalk application can now be a first class citizen on Android devices, including access to Accelerometers, text-to-speech and lots of other good things.

I hope to read more about all this and look forward to seeing someone release their first GNU Smalltalk application on Google Play…
