Why was this made
Previously when a new jailbreak was released, the community manages a large google spreadsheet. The old process is super time consuming and tedious to cross reference against your device.
What does it do
In the spirit of open source and to give back, I spent some time writing this tweak for Cydia that adds a section with compatibility results into the package details page.
Users can also go to the frontend website @ https://jlippold.github.io/tweakCompatible/ to view user submissions.
In order to submit whether a tweak works with an iOS version, you need to submit a review via Cydia. If you click the
Working button at the bottom of the package details page, you will be redirected to github issues with a pre-populated issue created. A github account is required to submit reviews.
Every hour, I pull any open issues, update
docs/tweaks.json, and close the ticket. This is done by cron.
This repo also contains a nodejs script,
tools\index.js, that pulls open issues from github and updates the tweaks.json file. Just run
npm install, then
npm start. If changes were found, commits will be made, then just
git push to remote.
To use the script, the env variable
GITHUB_API_TOKEN must be set.
npm run rebuild will wipe out all packages and recreate them from the closed issues in the repo.
I wanted to make this automated, community driven, with minimal human dependencies. Here is how the statuses are calculated:
Working: if 75% of the users say it's working.
Likely working: if 40% of the users say it's working.
Not working: if < 40% say it's working
- Add request feature
- Add more moderation tools
- block package
- block user
block cydia repo
