Google independent zmNinja via F-Droid or downloadable packages (apk)

For security / privacy reasons I am using a gapps-free phone with F-Droid as main repository. I would appreciate if zmNinja could be made available on F-Droid or as downloadable package files (apk) so it could be installed / used without the need to use play store.

    Hi, this topic came up some time ago, and unfortunately I can't support this for many reasons:

    1. The submission guidelines are incompatible with zmNinja code & license (it uses 3rd party plugins, one of which is commercial, zmNinja is dual licensed as well)
    2. I don't have the time to maintain another apk distribution channel and keep it updated
    3. Even if I did have time to maintain another distribution channel, submitting it to F-droid will require removing non-free components and that will cascade into support issues, which I definitely don't have additional time for

    -orion you can use zmNinja with microG without any problem.

    While I understand why it may not be possible at this point, really hope this may change in the future and we might see an F-Droid release.

    I understand that F-Droid may not be possible, but would it be acceptable to build the APK and add it to the files you already publish (AppImage, dmg, exe) in the GitHub Releases section?

    No, that defeats the purpose of trying to sell it on the app store/play store. Folks so inclined should compile it on their own.
