@Bubu 1st, let me complain mention how unnecessarily difficult it is to file requests for the absolute best F-Droid client, your excellent Classic. Does every new user for your Git server need personal approval from yourself to post issues? Or did I run into another (perhaps obscure) bug when trying register via my GitHub/GitLab credentials?
On to the bug: I think the version string in the search listing has a higher priority than the app’s own name, so 1 ends up w/
which doesn’t seem ideal. Here’s the same thing in landscape, to get a clearer view:
It does obviously show app name at top. Works for me.
Name @ top is
my search query. I originally noticed it the main applist, where I’d no idea what it was 'til I tapped. I was just showing a minimal example.
When I tap on an app in F-Droid Classic, the app name is always shown in the header at top.
Yep, that still works. Just the applist from search/default view is off.
I see. Screen size is limited. 1-line descriptions are also shortened sometimes. When columns info is too much, something has to shorten. They chose left column.
Another example is “Libre Office Viewer” or “Maps & GPS Navigation OsmAnd+”.
Toggling screen rotate and turning phone 90 degrees can help give more width to display.
Yes, that’s why I posted that 2nd screenshot.
@Bubu doesn’t seem to be active here anymore. I guess I’ll have to try his e-mail.
You/We could also suggest to f-droid and apps developers having a reasonably short limit on Version designators.
I think I’d be a hypocrite if I were to do that, since I’ve recommended
much longer semantic versioning.
@zikalify So, append the new date-code as a suffix to the previous versioning, so you get easy visual scanning (as @Coffee notes) & your dates are obvious, too.
E.g.: 220.127.116.118.285.1, then 18.104.22.1688.291.3, &c.
( @Coffee I believe that @zikalify wants to use
for whatever reason. )
Or are you trying to keep solely xxx.yyy.zzz scheme, for some reason?
It’s OK to change.
@zikalify and @Coffee appear to have also left f-droid. Coffee also left github and gitlab, and so many other places they’ve virtually disappeared.
Unless you revise more than once a second, computer epoch in seconds should be more than sufficient for version numbers.
with order variation for Europe if desired.
