New Games

As the games list remains unmaintained, it did not see much action. Please step up if you're into games, here are what's on the agenda (aside from adding/reviewing games)!

Maintenance

Most listings were automatically updated, and many of them were additionally edited by hand and brought up to date. And because information regarding services or frameworks can't be updated automatically ...

Please contribute

Since April 14th, 2023, the way this site is generated and thus also the ways to contribute to it have been simplified. All relevant parts now live in one repository.

As a consequence, fixing existing app or game listings is now just one click away (provided you have a framagit account) - every listing has an edit link at the bottom of the page.

Footer on the bottom of the page

So if you see that something is wrong, take the time and help fix it!

Adding apps

If you want to add an app (if you don't know any, check Apps to be added ;-) ),

Fortunately, we now have a new and easy way to do this:

LPA helper is ugly, but it works. We hope to integrate it properly and overhaul its UI soon - if you have questions or suggestions, do not hesitate to ask/get in touch!

You can also send your prepared listing via email to the devel-list.

What's next?
