F-Droid has a small but pretty dedicated group of users; https://f-droid.org/

Seems like a lot of work: https://f-droid.org/en/docs/Inclusion_Policy/

And probably impossible without major changes since we're building using Expo.

Honestly I don't think we have resources maintaining F-Droid version, but we can simply serve downloadable APK (#2).

F-droid only user here. It would be awesome to have it in repo, I don't think I can help as I am not a dev.

Anyway, once the API is more mature it shouldn't be that hard to wrap everything up, should it?

You can download the apk directly, see FAQ: https://www.trustroots.org/faq/technology#f-droid

@simison, hi! I read the FAQ, but having the app on a store comes with quite some advantages, such as:

  • Easy to update
  • varified corrispondence between the code here and the binary (is a requisite to go into F-Droid)
  • easy to rule out android versions which may not be compatible

It is just better practice, I think

I have set up my own (public) F-Droid repository in order to serve myself (and a friend) the Trustroots Android App (and subsequent, future updates) easily. I can set up a small tutorial which can be shared in the TR FAQ for those interested in adding the repository to their F-Droid client in order to receive the Trustroots app there.

Nice, feel free to add a new file for it in docs.

It'll then be available via docs page: https://team.trustroots.org/DocName.html if file is DocName.md.

I can then link it in the FAQ.

Done. Will do pull request later.

In the meantime, for the impatient, I already posted a more detailed how-to on my website: https://platschi.net/f-droid-repository-for-trustroots.html

Awesome! Thanks @platschi !

@simison would it be possible to add the qrcode in the Fdroid page? It makes it easier to add repos
