Platform Support

Tested and should work on:

  • Android 5+ (up-to-date WebView implementation required)
  • Linux (amd64 and i386)

Not tested but should work on:

  • Windows

Building for NW.js

Since this is a webapp, there isn't really a build process.

  1. Install Yarn, and run ./ to grab dependencies.
  2. Get NW.js and unpack it into a folder (we'll use ~/nw.js).
  3. Move to the www folder in this repository and run ~/nw.js/nw .
  4. The process is basically the same for non-Linux systems, just use the appropriate version of NW.js.

Building for Cordova/Android

This assumes you have Cordova and a working Android SDK installed.

  1. Install Yarn, and run ./ to grab dependencies.
  2. Run ./ to cut the APK size in half.
  3. Run cordova platform add android.
  4. Run cordova build android --release.
