Compiling apps from source is so simple! Why didn't I do it before‽

@badrihippo What, for android? Are you sure you're not confusing "so simple" with "pain and suffering"?

@byllgrim ohh—I meant desktop apps. Android is completely different 😬

@badrihippo if you dont have a reason to, grabbing from f-droid is easier and lets you get updates painlessly. manual compiling without a reason is just extra work

@wowaname sorry, I meant desktop apps. I do use F-droid for Android apps, it works great :fdroid: 👍

@wowaname yup.

I started compiling to avoid Flatpak. Looks like I've still picked up their terminology 😛
