List of known repos that can be used with F-Droid. Might help anyone getting started who wants to see more software. IzzyOnDroid is highly recommended to really flesh out F-Droid.
Proposed link from F-Droid Wiki isn’t updated since 2017, this list is maintained instead: https://forum.f-droid.org/t/known-repositories/721
I use Izzy’s, unofficial Firefox, Bromite, Newpipe, Collabora Office, as well as the f-droid and Guardian repos that are enabled by default.
Why not link to the repos so others can use them? =]
They are all in the OP.
The collabora repo: https://www.collaboraoffice.com/downloads/fdroid/repo
theyre pretty easy to find.
There is a telegram channel as well
I always hear people praise Izzy’s repo, but I’ve always made do (due?) with F-Droid’s default repo + Fluffychat, NewPipe, and Bitwarden repos. Does anyone know of any really good apps specific to Izzy’s repo that would make it worth activating?
It is less about specific in my experience and more about discovery. Since their repo has quite a bit more options and often updates faster of F-Droid official repo.
The repo of Izzy uses the APKs of the app authors (often the GitHub Releases). The main repo of F-Droid is built from source code. So Izzy gets faster updates, but the main repo builds from source code. Of course, the app must be open source in both.
Ah nice. Ya I noticed lemmur was on izzy for ~ a week before it got on f-droid.
Yes, it could be. On F-Droid is a bit more “strict” way to publish an app than on Izzy’s repo.
I activated it because of Otter, which is an app for Funkwhale.
Is there any repo I can find IceRaven browser. really tired of manually downloading apk from github
IMHO, iceraven shouldn’t be used in a “production” enviroment, the updates are sometimes slow and it has some security problems (at least, when I tried it). I can suggest you to use fennec or, if you want to try an hardened configuration, Mull. Mull is developed by the DivestOS team, and use settings from the arkenfox user.js. You can add this repository to download it https://divestos.org/fdroid/official?fingerprint=E4BE8D6ABFA4D9D4FEEF03CDDA7FF62A73FD64B75566F6DD4E5E577550BE8467
Only an advice to avoid breaking too many websites, if you’re gonna use Mull: change the setting “security.OCSP.require” to false
thank you. it is really great
There is also another list of repos: https://codeberg.org/mondstern/F-Droid-Paketquellen/wiki
is one I always install so I thought others might benefit from knowing it’s repo.
F-Droid is an installable catalogue of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) applications for the Android platform. The client makes it easy to browse, install, and keep track of updates on your device.
