ABOUT A file sharing client for your Android devices.

FrostWire for Android will let you search and download files from the BitTorrent network and it will let you share files with other FrostWire for Android devices on the same local network (via WiFi)

The local sharing happens through a simple JSON/HTTP protocol (still to be documented, you can look at how it works on the code for now, very very simple)

We'll put the specs of this protocol out for you to implement clients in your favorite platform, this way you will be able to browse, stream media or download files that FrostWire for Android users have decided to share on the local network.

FrostWire for Android also features a simple media player that we'll be evolving with future releases.

HACKING GUIDELINES

  • Keep it simple.

  • Do not repeat yourself. Re-use your own code and our code. It'll be faster to code, and easier to maintain.

  • Looking at the Issue tracker (https://github.com/frostwire/frostwire-android/issues) is a good place to start if you want to help.

  • Try to mimic our coding style and formatting before you submit a patch.

  • When you submit a patch, try to explain what issue you're fixing in detail and how you're fixing in detail it so it's easier for us to read your patches. If it's too hard to explain what you're doing, you're probably making things more complex than they already are. Look and test your code well before submitting patches.

  • We prefer well named methods and code re-usability than a lot of comments. Code should be self-explanatory.

Becoming a collaborator will only happen after we have received lots of great patches and we get to know you better.

Happy Hacking.
