F-Droid Server

Server tools for maintaining an F-Droid repository system.

What is F-Droid?

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.

What is F-Droid Server?

The F-Droid server tools provide various scripts and tools that are
used to maintain the main
F-Droid application repository. You
can use these same tools to create your own additional or alternative
repository for publishing, or to assist in creating, testing and
submitting metadata to the main repository.

For documentation, please see, or you can
find the source for the documentation in

There are many ways to install fdroidserver, they are documented on
the website:

All sorts of other documentation lives there as well.


There are many components to all the tests for the components in
this git repository. The most commonly used parts of well tested, while
some parts still lack tests. This test suite has built over time a
bit haphazardly, so it is not as clean, organized, or complete as it
could be. We welcome contributions. Before rearchitecting any parts
of it, be sure to contact us to discuss
the changes beforehand.

fdroid commands

The test suite for all of the fdroid commands is in the tests/
subdir. .gitlab-ci.yml and .travis.yml run this test suite on
various configurations.

  • tests/run-tests runs the whole test suite
  • tests/*.TestCase are individual unit tests for all of the fdroid
    commands, which can be run separately, e.g. ./update.TestCase.
  • run one test: tests/common.TestCase CommonTest.test_get_apk_id

Additional tests for different linux distributions

These tests are also run on various distributions through GitLab CI. This is
only enabled for master@fdroid/fdroidserver because it takes longer to
complete than the regular CI tests. Most of the time you won't need to worry
about them, but sometimes it might make sense to also run them for your merge
request. In that case you need to remove these lines from

and push this to a new branch of your fork.

Alternatively run them

like this: gitlab-runner exec docker ubuntu_lts


The tests for the whole build server setup are entirely separate
because they require at least 200 GB of disk space, and 8 GB of
RAM. These test scripts are in the root of the project, all starting
with jenkins- since they are run on


The API documentation based on the docstrings gets automatically
published here on every commit
on the master branch.

It can be built locally via

pip install -e .[docs]
cd docs
sphinx-apidoc -o ./source ../fdroidserver -M -e
sphinx-autogen -o generated source/*.rst   
make html

To additionally lint the code call

pydocstyle fdroidserver --count

When writing docstrings you should follow the
numpy style guide.
