Thanks to @Alex-Esko, who put a 100€ bounty on the packaging of Calculator++ (f-droid.org/en/packages/org.so), the app is now available through F-Droid for everyone. 🎉
(With an update fixing the remaining bugs introduced by the F-Droid build coming very shortly)

We're starting another round of translation workflow improvements for websites working with #Weblate: this time the focus is taking the pain out of translating Markdown texts, this builds upon the work on the @fdroidorg website

guardianproject.info/2020/03/0

We added a brand new page with donation options for F-Droid: f-droid.org/donate/

You'll also get redirected to this page now after downloading F-Droid from the homepage.

Feedback welcome.

#FDroid (and #Newpipe) use #acra in email only mode which behaves very similar then. #Acra is still a more complex dependency, so if you don't need any of the extended functionality, it might be a bit overkill.

Quoting from the readme:

Send traces via email, pros:

* no need for internet permission
* having a email adress of the sender to contact the user after e.g. the bugfix
* no problem when there is no internet at the moment
* user is able to write some more info into the stacktrace mail
* no need for extra server backend

If you want simple crash reporting functionality for your android app consider using #tracedroid by ligi.
github.com/ligi/tracedroid

Crash reports are super useful, if only for being able to see the stacktraces of my own apps without connecting to a computer.

Tracedroid is super simple (~100 LOC or so), requires 2 lines of code to set it up in your app and yet it has a number of benefits over a lot of the far more complex libraries (at least for my usecases.)

Bitcoin contributions will be turned into USD and that amount will be credited to our Collective. This is currently a manual process, so funds won't show up right away.
