Client for F-Droid, the Free Software repository system for Android.
Building with Gradle
You can download the application directly from our site or browse it in the repo.
Core F-Droid functionality is split into re-usable libraries to make using F-Droid technology in your own projects as easy as possible.
More information about libraries
See our Contributing doc for information on how to report issues, translate the app into your language or help with development.
We are on
#fdroid-dev on OFTC. We hold weekly dev meetings
#fdroid-dev on Thursdays at 11:30h UTC, which usually last half an hour.
- Why does F-Droid require "Unknown Sources" to install apps by default?
Because a regular Android app cannot act as a package manager on its own. To do so, it would require system privileges (see below), similar to what Google Play does.
- Can I avoid enabling "Unknown Sources" by installing F-Droid as a privileged system app?
This used to be the case, but no longer is. Now the Privileged Extension is the one that should be placed in the system. It can be bundled with a ROM or installed via a zip.
