LineageOS released their own SDK for applications to take advantage of all the possibilities of the ROM

Lineage Sdk


Rooting the phone each time makes less sense, however it can be very useful for installing ROMs as LineageOS that allow you to give a second life to the device.

Today, the creators of this platform based on Android advertise LineageSDK, the set of tools that allows developers to create applications that integrate into the ROM drive and take advantage of all the possibilities that offers LineageOS.

To date, options such as profiles or styles only were reserved to the own ROM. Now anyone who is interested will be able to create applications that take advantage of these functions and so provide users with an experience much more complete.

this is Not the first time that we see an SDK from a ROM. It is something quite common at the time in which the development of the system is advanced. CyanogenMod, the old ROM that LineageOS has taken the baton, it also prepared its own SDK.

LineageSDK is open source and you can already see the documentation wiki. The initial level of the API to LineageOS 15.1 is the 8, but soon will be presented new APIs, and will increase to level 9.

we have the API for the styles, with which you can customize the appearance of the mobile with dark themes or colors specific. In the event that a developer take advantage of this API for example when you put the dark theme on the system then also what we would have in the music player or in any specific application.

Something similar happens with the profiles API. This is one of the functions star LineageOS. It allows us to click-through to activate multiple actions such as mute, connect the WiFi and the Bluetooth, or any combination. The developers with this API will be able to expand its use and allow you to through the profiles of LineageOS trigger also specific functions of the applications.
