Getting Started

In this tutorial I will explain how to install necessary tools to start creating the Ubuntu touch apps.

First you need Ubuntu OS, Because Ubuntu-sdk currently supports only Ubuntu OS. So install the latest version of it to get started.

Next add SDK Release PPA by entering following command in terminal

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa

After entering above command it will ask for your password, enter the password and hit Enter.

Install the Ubuntu SDK by entering following command in your terminal.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk

That's it you are good to go. In terminal type ubuntu-sdk
This will launch the SDK where you can start developing beautiful apps.

You can also launch Ubuntu-SDK IDE by searching it in Unity dash.

You can develop native apps using qml.
You can develop web apps using html5.
Both are supported in Ubuntu touch.
