#33 Preloaded Ministro

future release
BogDan Vatra
ministro (2)

I would be interrested in a scenario where we can pre-load Ministro and some of the libraries together with our app so that the user does not have to download the libraries. I still want our app to be part of the Ministro
deployment mechanism, just with the opportunity of preloading the libs when practical. This is needed for "mass deployment" of a large number of devices where installing using Marked is not practical. But the installed Ministro and libs must be compatible with the "marked-version", so that it behaves as if it was downloaded from marked. Then our preloaded Minstro and libs would be updated from Marked too.

Ticked added based on this conversation with BogDan: http://groups.google.com/group/android-qt/browse_thread/thread/ed2f1d4f40f30768

  • I would add that this feature would also be good for the current period of relatively early development. I personally would feel safer is a single APK could contain "the whole app" regardless of whether Ministro of corresponding version is available (even if APK is some 15MB then - some market apps are even bigger that that).

    It would just take Ministro interaction and possible versioning issues out while there are other rough things here and there.
