Purism Preps Documentation for Devs to Hack on the Librem 5 Linux Phone Platform

This summer, Purism will start distributing the development boards for its upcoming Librem 5 phone, allowing early adopters and developers to understand better who it works and prepare to build compelling and innovative apps for the smartphone, which is expected to hit the streets early next year. For that, there’s need for comprehensive documentation that would help developers accomplish their goals with the Librem 5 phone and development kit. For now, the documentation will help devs learn how to setup the wlroots-based phone shell for development, setup Plasma Mobile, as well as to build, deploy, and publish apps.
