Introducing the LineageSDK for developers

LineageOS is an operating system for everyone: from the average user to the advanced developer. While users have a giant playground in their hands with many customization options, we also want to make LineageOS a fun place for developers. The standards for official builds help ensure developers that their app will not end up in a bad state because of inappropriate Android API changes or broken hardware support, but this is not enough for us; we’re announcing some new APIs that will allow your apps to do more when they’re running on a LineageOS-powered device.

The Lineage platform SDK (LineageSDK for short) is a powerful resource that allows us to both keep our features out of the core Android frameworks (for better security and easier bringup processes) and expose some extra functionality to app developers.

We’ll have to wait and see if developers are willing to add some code to their Android applications for the features in this SDK.
