<p>Here's a little glimpse of something I've been cooking up:</p>
<a href="http://ferrante-della-griva.appspot.com">
<img src="/i/ferrante.png" alt="Ferrante" /></a>
<p>I've <a href="/134">hinted before</a> about getting interested in
mobile development for Android, but this past year Leiningen has
really snatched up the bulk of my hacking time. Now that it's
matured and stabilized a bit I've had a chance to take another
look at Mirah, a fringe JVM language that's perfect for Android by
virtue of bringing along zero additional runtime baggage. Ferrante
is my first nontrivial app, and it's really been fun to piece
together, blazing my own trail.</p>
<p>It's still got some spots where rough around the edges, but
there's enough to poke at for the intrepid developer or curious
beta tester. Source is
<a href="http://github.com/technomancy/ferrante">on
Github</a>. I'll be sure to post more as I get things figured
out; with a little more work I think using Mirah for mobile
development could really be a lot of fun.</p>
