I like F-Droid and would like to make my catalogue of offline map apps available on it free of charge. Actually I’ve been wanting to do that for quite a while, however the fact that I need to make every bit of it open source and invest the time into a reproducible build process scared me away. Especially because my build process is kind of complicated already with the extraction process of map data from OpenStreetMap, generation of map files and databases etc. However I recently discovered that it is possible to run one’s own repository of apps for F-Droid which users can just add to their F-Droid app. If I get it right that makes it possible for me to publish to F-Droid without going open source, correct?
I’ve followed the steps of the tutorial and create a repository here:
I checked that https://fdroid.mobanisto.com/repo/index.xml gets served, and all the rest is in place, too, as far as I can see.
However, if I add the repository to F-Droid on my phone, I can’t find anything from the repo (at the moment there should be only the app for Berlin inside, however if I type “Berlin”, I do get 8 results, but my own app is missing).
Any way to debug this or find out what’s going wrong?
