Responsive design is coming to the Lollypop music player.
A week or two back I shared a video of the stylish KDE music player Babe which showcased the app’s sleek new ‘responsive design’ capabilities.

But GTK fans needn’t feel like they’re missing out. Lollypop — arguably the best modern desktop music player for GNOME — is working on a responsive design too.
And based on the following short clip shared by Lollypop developer Cédric Bellegarde, things are looking super sweet:
To an outsider like me it’s clear that Kirigami gives Qt developers a head-start when it comes to creating apps that can adapt their interface and features depending on their relative window size and position.
I don’t know much (if anything) about the state of responsive design in GTK (though Purism is now working to improve responsive GTK+ apps) but I can say that it is exciting to see a regular, native GTK+ app like Lollypop able to morph its UI according to window size. Electron apps can do it; Qt/Qml apps can do it; and thanks to this video it’s clear that GTK apps can do it too.
