Thanks to everyone who made this possible; now GitHub-using users of elementary OS have the official client available to them without having to ever touch the Terminal. https://flathub.org/apps/details/io.github.shiftey.Desktop
Yeah, I had to as a SteamOS beta user all the way to a GamerOS (now ChimeraOS) user today I just am a sucker for wanting Steam on Linux to thrive. #steamdeck

Here comes libadwaita! Read about our plans to make GNOME apps and GTK 4 even better, and about the future of libhandy: https://adrienplazas.com/blog/2021/03/31/introducing-libadwaita.html
Still took 20 mins to build for aarch64 though. But more than 2x pinephone, and easier to manage. I'll take it.
Finally got gnome builder set up to x-compile so I can build flatpaks for Pinephone. Just involved installing some qemu packages. Now the easy part of building, scp and install over SSH, run on Pinephone!
I'm glad I tried building from source on pinephone but still much easier to build for it than on it.
For fun I bootstrapped a mobile friendly GTK Rust app and trying to build it on Pinephone now, in GTK Builder. Build took 50 mins (and almost all of content is default GTK Rust flatpack app), so probably impractical to ever dev on it. Plus couldn't access the running app. Trying create bundle to see if that works.
Libhandy works great, and building on desktop fine. Just need to work out how to target Pinephone from it.
