Shadowsocks for fdroid


#1

shadowsocks android is the android port of the shadowsocks project. Adding Shadowsocks to the fdorid currently has two blockers

  • It uses GSM library
  • the core is written in GO

Asking them kindly if they would be interested to cooperate got turned down multiple times so the only way to add it would be to try and fork it.


#2

Syncthing has the main binary in GO, not sure that would be an issue.

GSM used for what?


#3

I am not sure for what GSM is used, but since Shadowsocks relies on a self hosted server I would say it does not play an important rule within the app. I made the experience that remove GSM for such apps is mostly not a problem.

If someone is interested here is a link to the sync thing metadata file.
