F-Droid will soon have stricter requirements for apps showing up in the "Latest" tab in the F-Droid app:

If you are an app developer consider adding good descriptions, screenshots and a "Whats's New" section for your app.

If you notice that your favourite app doesn't fulfill all these requirements consider notifying the app's developers or just help them with a merge request adding the missing info to the source repo.

We're looking to map out all technical details for how apps are people, if you have ideas or more info, please submit them to our issue tracker!

Any dev out there looking for a new (and probably easy) project?

I just found Nextcloud Cookbook (/com/android/quickstep) which lacks an Android counter-part. Even "View only" would be great (for the kitchen). All data is stored in files, one sub-dir per recipe, well structured JSON for data (plus image files if there are any with the recipe).

Who takes the challenge and writes a small viewer?
