support Google Play upload tools: Fastlane and Triple-T Gradle Play Publisher #1525
There are two major tools for managing the localized files for Google Play: Fastlane Supply and Triple-T Gradle Play Publisher. F-Droid also supports the same file/dir structure. If Weblate would directly support those files, then there would be a clean, simple, automated way to translate Android apps using Weblate. Here's the ideal workflow:
Both Fastlane and Triple-T use plain text for the source and translation file format. title and short_description would be easy to support directly as plain text, changelog and full_description much less so:
But perhaps this setup is just too different from standard translation workflows that assume strings are in a single source file. I've also opened issues on those tools to get feedback there:
I really want to find a way to get this workflow working really smoothly. Translations are really important, and something that really should be as automated as possible.

Here's one hard part of this whole setup: the hard character limits for full_description and changelog. So 4000 and 500 chars are pretty big blocks of text for a single translation string. But I haven't found a way to set a character limit for a group of strings, only for a single string.
