Hey guys. I just heard about the F-Droid Store.
If I want to push my app in this store - then how should I start with it?
Like can u do for me a quick lil summary and an instruction. Would be very much appreciated.
U can also attach helpful links if u want!
Thanks in advance!
Wish u a good week and stay safe!
Where is the source code hosted? Link?
You night start here: https://f-droid.org/en/docs/Submitting_to_F-Droid_Quick_Start_Guide/ but the Docs section has a lot of info
Hey thanks for the reply
Actually its already released on appstore huawei and playstore
i hav the apk of it and i hav to unzip and post it on github?
witht that repository i can push it for review, no?
as u can see i am a bloody starter lmao but rly appreciating ur help!!
Source code is needed, not only APKs, F-Droid needs to build the app from that source code and its fully open source dependencies
Yes, you can use Github, Gitlab, Codeberg or your own hosted git instance.
and where exactly needs it to be pushed?
You out the app source code where you want, we’ll use that repo th pull the source and build the app.
You push updates there, etc
okey thanks for those helpful informations. i will get to you when i got the source code
So i need to invite u to our gitlab, there I need to invite u over mail.
We want to make sure to keep the source private and also not to maintain it also over github.
where can i find the official mail to invite the contributor to our gitlab ?
Nope, F-Droid builds only free and open-source apps, all the code needs to be available, no secret repos, no missing source code, no non-free dependencies.
Eg. https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.fdroid.fdroid/ see below
Version 1.14-alpha0 (1014000) - Added on 2021-09-01
This version requires Android 5.1 or newer.
It is built and signed by F-Droid, and guaranteed to correspond to this source tarball.

If you can’t provide that, you can still build your app locally with fdroidserver and host an F-Droid repository that users can add to their F-Droid client. But… we can’t add your app to the main F-Droid repo.
