Development

Initially the app was created using pure QML because Qt Quick Components have not been available yet. After the components got published we decided to rewrite the UI to give our app a more consistent look and feel with the rest of the applications. We did not have to touch the C++ backend but only had to rewrite the UI layer. In many places we already used our own components with a similar API to the Qt Quick Components, therefore changing the UI was straight forward. The initial rewrite took about 2 days plus some fine-tuning later on. The visual result and performance is now much better.

We could use Qt Quick Components almost everywhere. Additionally we only needed an element to create images with rounded corners and had to do some customizations to the map element.
