Apps that haven't been ported to aarch64

This is a list of software which is missing aarch64 support. Much of it is from
https://together.jolla.com/question/195152/adopting-abandoned-apps/

I’m pinging, using issues on github/gitlab to contact people and offer to help. I’ll also push things to chum as I obtain permission. If anyone would like assistance getting into chum, I can help. It makes your life a lot easier and more or less can assure you of always having builds for current SFOS …

I’m just making brief notes below the links to track progress. Please add any links you see fit, as long as the links point to source.

EDIT, this is now a wiki.

  • answered, will try to go via chum builds

https://gitlab.unique-conception.org/sailfish-app/2048

  • ask pycage, he pushed tidings to @poetaster
  • is on openrepos, wedmer
  • available in openrepos (aviarus who also has sailfinder, sailbook, stellarium)
  • no interest
  • Jupii from openrepos might be an alternative

*available in openrepos from fifr

  • I’ve forked and will probably take this to chum
  • communicating, it’s a bit of an odd structure to pull into obs.
  • probably refactor, api changes
  • like all spotify apps, it’s using old apis, so would need a complete refactor.
  • frankly, too weird. forked anyway
  • answered, they are on it.
  • author responded. no device, thinks the api’s drifted so it’s probably a refactor

https://hub.darcs.net/dasimmet/Sailfish-Scanner

  • forked, no license.
  • no longer maintained, forked, no license

DONE

  • is now in chum, not sure if it’s in jolla yet.
  • this and irssi are in chum, at least

I’ve pinged all of the above. Given some time, if they have GPL like lics, I’ll fork em and get them into chum. That I’ll split into topics when it’s time to test.

I made a pull request for 2048 to make it a noarch application. I uploaded the RPM for the impatient, too :slight_smile:

heh! I’m about to push it to chum. Damn. I was about to put it in open repos after that. Did you push it there?

I rebuilt the build file and added icons and so

AFAIK Fabien is still “around”, but not that active. I suggest that Fabien could update the Jolla Store version. Or, if he doesn’t respond to the PR, I could try to push my work into Chum for learning the stuff.

Yeah, that would be ideal. Getting it into chum would be nice too but requires a License file. I saw he had GPLv3 in the source, so I added that which would make it trivial with the spec I set up to get into chum. maybe ask him?

Stupid question, how do I properly produce noarch packages :slight_smile: maybe: https://github.com/condo4/qml2048/pull/4/commits/9aedd0063dc13d300c0f6adb7264ea16fb0c7de3

Oh yeah, the license. I didn’t add license file yet, whoops. Did notice it was GPLv3, though.

Please check out my fork as I made quite a few fixes and improvements :sweat_smile: Let’s not push it to Chum just yet, give Fabien a few days :slight_smile:

The best way to get a noarch sample is to create a new QML-only SFOS app in the SDK. That’s what I do anyway.

Ok. I’ll hold off since you went a bit further than me. Maybe ask Fabien if he’s ok with us adding it to chum? Thanks for your efforts!

I’ve also been waiting for feedback and only doing testing in my private projects on obs, so I wouldn’t push it to chum:testing without feedback in some reasonable time.
