But wait, there's more! If you find that #UbuntuTouch does not work for you yet, the #UBports Installer has got you covered. Just run the installer again select #LineageOS to switch back. #DistroHopping on phones has never been easier!
The automatic reporting prompt has only been live a little over a day and we're already seeing a ton of reports from systems in the wild. 127 runs, and counting! This is going to be invaluable for improving the @ubports installer! See for yourself: https://ubports.open-cuts.org/build/5f9b61839702a600079d9f29
Pushing hard towards a 1.x release of the #UBportsInstaller: Just merged some PRs that brought us just below 50 open issues for the first time since alpha!
Still quite a bit to do before i would consider it completely stable (and some exciting stuff to look forward to!), but it's my personal goal to get it done before the end of the year!
random side-project contributions
Two very cool #foss projects to check out, btw!
https://caprover.com is basically a self-hosted #PaaS and can be used as an alternative to #heroku. Makes handling #docker #microservices a hell of a lot easier. Plus, it takes care of #letsencrypt certs.
It's still early in development, but the basic features are there! We'll begin trialing the software for different @ubports projects such as #UbuntuTouch, the #UBportsInstaller, and some core apps. Head over to https://ubports.open-cuts.org to see it in action!
Again, development is still early, so head over to our GitLab org https://gitlab.com/open-cuts to see how things progress over there (and maybe star the repos while you're at it?). I also probably won't shut up about it on here ;)
I'm happy to announce a project I've been working on for a while now:
#OpenCuts, the open crowdsourced user testing suite
OPEN-CUTS is a web-tool to help #OpenSource communities with user testing! The goal is to allow even inexperienced users to easily report test results for new software releases. OPEN-CUTS then aggregates and compares the metadata across versions to identify regressions.
Here's one #Firefox addon I did not regret installing: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/some-rich-asshole-enhanced/
In honor of the release of version 0.4.20-beta of the @ubports Installer, i kindly request you include your favorite weed joke in your bug reports. https://github.com/ubports/ubports-installer/releases/tag/0.4.20-beta
Been on a roll these last few days with small fixes to long-standing issues and implementing some things often requested by new porters. More to come, but for now this fixes some OEM-unlocking issues, improves detection, and adds a new fastboot:format step to the config format. Also migrated the #snap to the core20 base.
