F-Droid Server

Free software tool for building Android applications and publishing them on F-Droid.

The F-Droid Server can be used to build F-Droid packages by using F-Droid compatible package definitions. With it you can sign applications and publish your own F-Droid repository. Note that for building existing applications you might need a free Android SDK like the one in PureOS, or from Replicant 4.2.
