how do you even set up an f-droid mirror

i've read that you need about ~10GiB free, which i absolutely have. i'd really like to do this, but i don't know how. i don't need the build server or anything, i just want to mirror the content of the main f-droid repo. does anyone know how?


Wer sich über die teils verpixelten Gesichter auf meinen Photos von der Demo wundert, ich hab mal #ObscuraCam vom Guardian Project ausprobiert.

Schon nicht schlecht, aber bei so Massen werden zu wenige automatisch erkannt.

Wer Guardian Project nicht kennt, die haben eine Handvoll #Android #privacy apps in einem F-Droid Repository. Z.B. auch #Orbot Tor für Android und ehemals #Orfox für Orbot, jetzt Tor Browser.

#GuardianProject #FDroid

Google a supprimé #KDEConnect du playstore parce que l'appli violerait leurs nouvelles règles relatives aux SMS, et parce qu'ils ont également supprimé l'exception dont elle bénéficiait...

Bref, utilisez #FDroid si vous voulez une version complète de KDE Connect.

Le playstore ne proposera plus qu'une version bridée.


I have to say that I am seriously impressed with the F-Droid Repomaker utility. It's well-designed and easy to use.

#foss #fdroid

Today I installed the #Manyverse app from #FDroid - it is a social network based on #SecureScuttleButt or rather a mobile frontend for the Secure Scuttlebutt protocol. Many concepts are difficult to grasp, as it's very different from the Fediverse - you don't need a server in the first place. It seems rudimentary but very promising since it can work off the grid, via Bluetooth or local network. There are no URLs for users neither for messages. Reminds of #Briar in many ways.

@LaurentChemla Dis, comment tu as fait le gif de la poule qui bouge vu par ici il y a quelques jours ? J'ai testé "Video transcoder" sur #fdroid mais ça me fait des GIF trop gros :-\

At some point there are going to be programs that are nothing more then sandboxes for web assembly.

how is #fdroid going to handle those programs? Cause if you let one them into fdroid, its going to be a slippery slope and all of them will want in.

from now on I will use the tag #fdroidapk instead of #fdroid

so basically users can subscribe and do searches on #fdroidapk to hear mentions of new apps. And also developers can participate and talk about a new app they release

workload decentralization 😀 how about that

and its good for users to get to know the developers

App icons and screenshots loading very slow in #fdroid. Is this normal? @fdroidorg


Menstrual/period calendar 🤦 Give it time and there will be an app for everything. This one is for the lady issues.


@blequerrec @tuxicoman @lord @loursdenice @jz Peux-tu voir la conversation ? @loursdenice y mentionne une compromission des clefs de #silence. Dans la conversation il est également fait référence à @jz qui en parlerait dans une conférence. C'est pas bien clair pour moi.

To #fdroid users. #Mastalab 1.63.0 is available, you can now connect your #Peertube account(s).

- if you have difficulties for watching videos don't hesitate to change the mode in settings.
- you can follow/unfollow accounts and channels, rate videos and write/remove comments.

Upload feature should come at the end of the week.

@datione I don't think he does. If you want to chat, drop by in #fdroid.


ha, je l'ignorais, Vais aller voir ça de manière plus approfondie.

#Wire est dispo sur #fdroid aussi?

et voici la liste à partir d’un téléphone nu

#fdroid sur une clé usb pour être mis sur le gsm et ensuite tout est dispo sur fdroid

#davx5 pour accéder à mes calendriers et contacts
#silence pour les sms chiffrés
#k9mail pour les mails
#nextcloud pour accéder à ma base de donnée pour le gestionnaire de mot de passe
#keepassdx pour les mots de passe

le tour des plus utiles est fait en bonne partie


#davdroid is now called #DAVx5, read more about this here:

You'll find it under the new name in #FDroid with the next update.

Find the slides for my talk about #fdroid and some of the best #FreeSoftware apps (imho) for #Android (or fork) now linked on its description page:

<3 to the Open Infrastructure Orbit for hosting the session!

I didn't watch many talks at #35c3 but one I attended and can highly recommend was by #FDroid core team member _hc about nearby and offline connectivity:

We totally need to make an #fdroid #infobeamer ad next year! #35c3

Next in the track at 17:00: #FDroid: Pimp your Android(-fork) with the best #FreeSoftware #apps by in the Open Infrastructure Orbit

#35C3 #CCC

If you're at #35C3, don't miss out _hc's talk which will be partly about #fdroid too and starts in less than an hour at 16:10 at Eliza: Wind: Off-Grid Services for Everyday People

Fahrplan/schedule update pushed. #35c3 #FDroid

(Pull to refresh, etc. etc,)

Now sleep.

As of yesterday #fdroid now incnludes #vlc media player in it's main repository again! 🎉

The latest batch of apps has been pushed to the #FDroid repo while the F-Droid community meetup was running including #35c3 Schedule and #c3nav. 👍

There's a fahrplan app update ready for you at

Pull to refresh your #fdroid repo index.


Das finde ich aber bitter, dass ausgerechnet die #35c3-App es nicht ins normale #fdroid-Repositorium geschafft hat. Die c3-Apps der letzten Jahre waren doch alle im regulären Verzeichnis. Sind da jetzt soviele unfreie Bibliotheken verbaut, dass das nicht mehr geht, oder woran liegt das?
