gPodder 4 for Sailfish OS

This repository contains the platform-specific customizations and packaging for running gPodder 4 on Sailfish OS. Python 3.3.3 and PyOtherSide is already included in the device repositories starting with Sailfish OS

Getting Started with Development

Development on Device/ in Emulator

There is the possibility to directly clone the repository to the device/ emulator and work there:

  1. Connect via SSH to your SailfishOS device e.g. connect to emulator: ssh -p 2223 -i ~/SailfishOS/vmshare/ssh/private_keys/SailfishOS_Emulator/nemo nemo@localhost
  2. Install the needed packages: pkcon install git pyotherside-qml-plugin-python3-qt5
  3. Clone this repo: git clone --recursive
  4. Set up development symlinks:
    cd gpodder-sailfish
  5. Launch main qml file: /usr/lib/qt5/bin/qmlscene qml/harbour-org.gpodder.sailfish.qml

Building RPM Package

The RPM package can be build in the SailfishOS Build Engine VM

  1. Start the Sailfish OS Build Engine VM
  2. Connect to it via SSH: ssh -p 2222 -i ~/SailfishOS/vmshare/ssh/private_keys/engine/mersdk mersdk@localhost
  3. Move to your source code directory. You can usually access your home directory via the ~/share/ directory from inside the build engine
  4. In case you created development symlinks (see above): remove them using bash dev_symlinks --unlink
  5. Build the package using mb2 -t SailfishOS-armv7hl build (change target architecture to your needs)
  6. The built package can be found in the RPMS directory.
