FireMonkey does not mimic native controls perfectly, especially on OSX. This is simply because all its controls are implemented fully in FireMonkey, and so all behaviour has to be coded - and it is very unlikely to ever get an implementation that is indistinguishable from the platform-native controls. Platform-native is important.
But, what if there was a library of native FireMonkey controls, using Cocoa on OSX and the WinAPI - like the VCL - on Windows?
Jason Southwell has started a project on KickStarter to implement native controls for FireMonkey, under the name 'NakeyMonkey'. He has a goal of $20,000, but with seven days to go only $7,642 has been pledged.
This project is just what FireMonkey and cross-platform Delphi and C++ Builder needs. I'm posting since I think it needs more exposure, and more backers - I am worried it may not reach its goal. I read about it a few days ago and thought, 'ah, it'll get funded, I don't need to do anything' - but maybe I do. So:
If you can, please consider backing it too.
Remember, you'll only actually pay if the project reaches the funding goal - if it misses, no-one loses money.
Jason has also added prizes / credits if you pledge more than a certain amount, too, such as getting beta builds, getting a license of the product and a year's support, or two year's support, phone calls with the developers, etc, as extra incentives for funding specific amounts.
On another note: one person has pledged $1500. Whoever that is, you're a generous guy / gal!
