Project Bretzn app-store to be integrated into opensuse

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Duplicate of #310778
Status: Done


1. Make it easy for developers to release an application
2. Make it easy for developers to market and for users to learn about that application
3. Make it easy for users to install the application
Project Bretzn consists of three parts: the
building of the package, the
publishing of the application, the
marketing to the users and the
feedback cycle back to the developer. The building part consists of plugins for IDE’s and integration with Build Services and using
Lubos Lunak’s OBS Generator (yes, still
looking for a new name ) to automatically generate cross-platform build files. Publishing sends the app to a variety of App Stores and then markets it through announcing it on Facebook, Twitter, via a RSS feed and the
Social Desktop . Finally, users can provide feedback by rating the application and commenting on it, by writing bug reports and send messages to mailing lists or forums. And all of that with one click (well, maybe a few more).
Status (as of Linuxtag 2011):

This sounds like the kind of thing we want!

The greatest use of this is in allowing users to know what is available and read reviews and descriptions, as opposed to looking around online then looking in repos.

sorry, this is a duplicate of Feature #310778 :D

And hopefully Bretzn will make it - problem is lack of development right now. Anyone who knows a bit of QML could finish it in 2-3 weeks, Frank is willing to mentor anyone who has time. So if whoever reads this is up for it, just let me/him know :D

have you had any news on this Jos, it would be a tragedy if another opensuse release rolls by with an appstore just out of reach?

Sounds great, just subtract the Failbook part. =D

we are in rapid danger of not having a KDE frontend for the Appstream based app-store.
despite the fact that the ball started rolling with project bretzn a year ago it appears that it may not make it into 12.1, for the sake of i am told is a small amount of coding*.
opensuse even sponsored a GSoC project to bring the Ubuntu Software Centre front-end into opensuse, and i believe it went very well so cnograts to the coder involved.
frank's time is taken up with owncloud at the momemt, and he had little response to his call for help, so consider this a last call:
if you want to see a bretzn KDE front-end to the opensuse app-store in 12.1, then step up.
JBT :)
