GPlayWeb: A Web interface for GPlayCli

Original work of @matlink forked to use latest versions of fdroid and gplaycli and providing a Dockerfile for easy install.

Docker install (gplayweb + fdroid)

First, install docker.

Then, to use the last version of container on dockerhub:

docker run --name gplayweb -p 127.0.0.1:8888:8888 matlink/gplayweb

You can also build the container yourself

docker build -t gplayweb .

Then run it

docker run --name gplayweb -p 127.0.0.1::8888:8888 gplayweb

To preserve gplayweb and fdroid data, mount a local folder as docker volume:

docker run --name gplayweb -p 127.0.0.1:8888:8888 -v ~/fdroid/:/data/fdroid matlink/gplayweb

Then, you may want to expose your (static) fdroid repo using a nginx container

docker run --name fdroid-nginx -p 8080:80 -v ~/fdroid/repo:/usr/share/nginx/html:ro nginx

As a result, you can access gplayweb on localhost and the fdroid repository on your.ip.address:8080.

Installation (consider using a virtualenv)

For both methods, you'll need those packages

# apt-get install python-dev python-pip libffi-dev

pip method

Use

pip install gplayweb
to install it. If you got a SandboxViolation for gplaycli, install it before with
pip install gplaycli
. After that, rename /etc/gplayweb/gplayweb.conf.example to /etc/gplayweb/gplayweb.conf and change parameters.

git method

  • Clone this repo:

    $ git clone https://github.com/matlink/gplayweb
    
  • Install

    gplayweb
    requirements with
    pip
    :
    $ pip install -r requirements.txt
    
  • Copy

    gplayweb.conf.example
    to
    gplayweb.conf
    and change the settings (you can comment unwanted lines out with #)
  • If you plan to add compatibility with F-Droid repo, ensure to uncomment the two config variables

    fdroid_repo_dir
    and
    fdroid_exec
    .

Usage

$ ./gplayweb -h
usage: gplayweb.py [-h] [-c CONF_FILE]

A web interface for GPlayCli

optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -c CONF_FILE, --config CONF_FILE Use a different config file than gplayweb.conf

FDroid Compatibility

Based on https://f-droid.org/wiki/page/InstallingtheServerandRepo_Tools python-imaging may be needed to update FDroid repository, don't forget to install it.

  • create user gplayweb :
    adduser gplayweb --disabled-password
  • go to /opt directory :
    cd /opt
  • get android SDK :
    wget https://dl.google.com/android/android-sdk_r24.3.4-linux.tgz
  • untar it :
    tar xvfz android-sdk_r24.3.4-linux.tgz
  • give it to gplayweb :
    chown gplayweb android-sdk-linux -R
  • put ANDROIDHOME env variable to your .bashrc : `echo export ANDROIDHOME=/opt/android-sdk-linux >> ~/.bashrc`
  • put android tools to your PATH variable :
    echo 'export PATH=$PATH:$ANDROID_HOME/tools' >> ~/.bashrc
  • reload .bashrc :
    source ~/.bashrc
  • if you don't have java (
    java -version
    ) :
    apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk
  • install Android 22 SDK :
    android update sdk --no-ui -a --filter 4
  • install platform-tools :
    android update sdk --no-ui --filter platform-tools
  • clone fdroidserver :
    cd /opt && git clone https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidserver.git && cd fdroidserver
  • install fdroidserver :
    sudo apt-get install fdroidserver
  • go to the folder where you want to host your fdroid repo :
    cd /opt/fdroid/
  • give it to gplayweb :
    chown gplayweb . -R
  • for android aapt to work, you need these packages :
    apt-get install lib32stdc++6 lib32z1
  • initialize fdroid repo :
    fdroid init
  • then in /etc/gplayweb/gplayweb.conf :

    folder=/opt/fdroid/repo

    fdroidrepodir=/opt/fdroid

    fdroid_exec=/usr/local/bin/fdroid

LSB script

It might still be a bit buggy. Change

USER
for the user which will run the daemon (gplayweb in this example), and
ANDROID_SDK
for the path of the android-sdk you have configured earlier (/opt/android-sdk-linux in this example).
$ /etc/init.d/gplayweb {start|stop|restart|status}

Please me hard enough if you want a systemd unit :D

Uninstall

Use

pip uninstall gplayweb
, and remove conf, templates and static files with
rm -rf /etc/gplayweb /usr/share/gplayweb
. Should be clean, except python dependancies for gplayweb and gplaycli.
