F-Droid is both a repository of verified free software Android apps as well as a whole "app store kit", providing all the tools needed to setup and run an app store. It is a community-run free software project developed by a wide range of contributors. It also includes complete build and release tools for managing the process of turning app source code into published builds.
This wiki represents the f-droid.org build infrastructure. The "buildserver" automatically posts build logs and other status information to this wiki. For documentation, see https://f-droid.org/docs/ Here are some of the things happening in this wiki:
- Repository Maintenance
- Recent Build Activity
- Apps to Update
- Apps with failing builds
- Generated Categories
- AntiFeatures What they are and what apps have them
The whole process is, for the most part, automated. When there are problems, then there will be manual intervention. This is the order that the commands run on the buildserver:
- fdroid checkupdates
- fdroid build
- fdroid publish
- fdroid gpgsign
- fdroid update
- fdroid signindex
- fdroid deploy (aka fdroid server update)
Every app in f-droid.org has its own page, named using the Android "packageName" of the app. For example, F-Droid's packageName is
org.fdroid.fdroid and it's wiki page is
