You can help translate here. If your language isn't on the list, sign in to transifex and request the language to be added to the list of translations. (Feel free to open a bug if your request was not approved within a few days - i don't look into transifex that often.)

Contributing code

  • A list of open issues can be found at the issue tracker
  • Features we would like to see (but nobody started working on them yet) have the patches-welcome label attached to them. Please let us know if you start working on such an open issue (to avoid duplicate work)
  • We accept raw patches and github pull request - and we use tabs (if your editor understands .editorconfig, it will help you enforce this).


To build you will need:

  • A Java compiler compatible with Java 1.8
  • The Android SDK with platform 26 installed

Building from command-line

Note: at the time of this writing, the current version of Gradle (4.5.1) is not compatible with the current version of JDK (9.0.4). To have the build succeed, use JDK version 1.8.0_162.

  • gradle build to build the APK
  • Optional: gradle installDebug to install the APK to a connected device
