I set up an F-Droid repository for the alpha/beta testing:


Configuring this was a bit of an adventure, but it seems to work now?

Currently it has the latest build (1.10a3) that you may already have installed. Let's see how well this works once I post a new build at some point.

Hang on folks… There seems to be some technical difficulties downloading the APK. I just tried reinstalling on my phone (uninstalling deletes bookmarks and client certs, btw!) and it says the requested file can’t be found.

This seems to help:

Go to F-Droid Settings > Repositories and tap to edit “Lagrange Pre-Release”. Then disable all of the “official mirrors” except for the first one.

No idea why the Repomaker tool decided to include those mirrors there, they don’t exist. I’ll try to get rid of them.

@FiXato @raixe @f

I managed to remove one of the mirrors, but this looks like a known issue:

C'est la vie...

I could attempt to later recreate the repo on GitLab and perhaps that'll turn out better.

@FiXato @raixe @f

@raixe @f I’m getting that myself now, too. Trying to figure out what’s wrong…

I can download that, but this phone says "Can't open file" when I try to open it...
I'll check later from my other device onto which I previously already installed the first build manually.

@jk @FiXato @f i installed it just fine. i'm on samsung galaxy note 8 with android 9. god, it's beatiful!

@la_ninpre @FiXato @f Thanks! Perhaps you were lucky and it picked the only mirror that works? 😄

@jk hmm, okay, that's weird. just tried it on my another phone with lineage os, and it throws the same error as for @f and @FiXato. the only difference in these devices is that one that succeeded with downloading is connected to vpn 🤔

@la_ninpre @f @FiXato Did you check the repository mirror settings as mentioned in my other toot?

@jk @f @FiXato that helped, yeah. thanks!

btw, works fine here on lineageos 18.1 :D

@jk Disabling the other mirrors means I've been able to install it now 👍️

Lagrange on Android is very exciting to see, looking forward to seeing it progress! 😊

@jk @FiXato @f is the repo issue the reason why this is not documented yet?

PS looks really nice! @Conan_Kudo pointed me to this, I'll try and get this packaged in #Fedora

@michel_slm @FiXato @f @Conan_Kudo

There's now a fully-functional F-Droid repo:

It's still early days for the Android port, as I haven't really started with the Android-specific features (hence "Alpha"). I'll make it more prominent once it's a bit further along.
