Spread the Word
As a user, the most important thing you can do to help us is to spread the word of BiglyBT. BiglyBT is fairly unknown. Mentioning BiglyBT on your favorite tracker site, blog, wiki, facebook, social media sites, and to friends would help us a lot. Don't get discouraged.
Other people will have different client preferences than you, and they will often feel attacked when someone talks about a client that isn't theirs. Try to keep discussions positive and informative! We want to co-exist with all clients, since all clients can help share.
Our translations for BiglyBT for Android are typically behind compared to BiglyBT core translations. Our Android project only has a couple of dozen languages, compared to the 40+ in BiglyBT core, and most of them are terribly incomplete.
Preferably, we'd love it if your native language wasn't English, however, anyone fluent in another language is very much appreciated.
To join in on the translations, please visit our BiglyBT-Android CrowdIn project. Translations are open to anyone with a CrowdIn account. If you would like to translate into a language that isn't listed, please let us know by creating a GitHub Issue and we will add it!
Due to a long git history for the core source (2003->present), ensure you have at least 400MB available.

Manual Source Migration Steps
If you pulled prior to 1310, this section is for you.
Updating project from VCS will likely result in the new submodules not being initialized (the directories
mldhtwill be empty). To fix this, run in the Terminal window (with path at the root of the project):
git submodule update --init
git should reply with a checkout of 6 submodules
Sync Projects with Gradle Fileswill properly setup the plugin and core module source paths.
You can remove the
BiglyBTfolder in the project root. After the sync, it will not be marked as a Module by Android Studio, and will contain mostly empty directories, along with plugin jars that are no longer used or referenced.
Be sure to look at your git local changed first, in case you have files that you still want.
Eclipse Code Formatter, and ensure the config file path is correct. It's been moved from
/app, but VCS may have prevented it from updating.
Restart Android Studio. If you use the IntelliJ plugin 'Awesome Console', file links may not work until you restart.
No special steps are needed to update the android source. A simple
