RoboBoy - a personal wiki for Android with Git synchronization

Always take your brain extension with you!

RoboBoy is a sister project of Vimboy, and serves exactly the same purpose: Managing a personal wiki of interlinked text files. It can synchronize with any Git server via Public Key Authentication.

Main activity   Page activity

Installation

Have a recent Android SDK, and ant. Clone this repo, connect your device, issue

ant debug install

Setup

Warning: This is still quite hacky. Enable developer access on your phone.

You need a Git repository that can be accessed via SSH key authentication. I recommend gitolite for managing those on your own server. For testing purposes, a public GitHub repository works as well.

On your computer, generate a new SSH key pair with

ssh-keygen -f phone -N ""

Passphrases are not supported yet. Give the new key read/write permission to your repository. Now, copy the key pair to your android device with

adb push phone /sdcard/.ssh/phone
adb push phone.pub /sdcard/.ssh/phone.pub

In RoboBoy's settings, specify the key's location, choose a name and email address for new commits, return to the main screen and sync away!

Usage

On my main computer, I use this script to sync and merge with the phone branch:

git add -A
git commit -m "Sync"

git fetch
git merge origin/phone && git push
