Friends for Sailfish

Friends for Sailfish is a simple Facebook client. After doing some work for Harmattan to bring a decent Facebook client, I decided to continue this work for Sailfish and bringing a nice client for Jolla users.

Friends already provides many features that are expected in a full Facebook client. Some features, like messaging, are not coming (yet ?) because of FB API, and some others, like News feed, is limited, once again because of FB API.

Features
  • A nice and native experience
  • As many features from Facebook as possible
  • An attached menu to make navigation easy
  • Open-source

Follow this threads for updates and new features being added.

Get it

If you want a stable version, get Friends on Jolla Store (when it is ready). For the adventurers, I provide two channels for beta and experimental builds:
  • Stable 1.0.3: store
  • Beta 1.0.3: Openrepos
  • Experimental 1.0.4: OBS
  • Next 1.0.50: OBS

I'm using github to host code and transifex to manage translations.

Bugs, issues
  • Comment system is partly broken: there is no way to browse more comments, and for long comment list, you cannot read all comments.
  • You don't have the number of notifications etc. It is not updated.
  • Some pages (group list, pages list, event list) needs design polish.

If you found yourself blocked with a message "Something wrong happened", you can try to remove the credentials
Code:
rm ~/.config/SfietKonstantin/Friends.conf
and try again. This should not happened anymore with versions >= 0.1.7.

If you find bugs, especially in beta, experimental builds, please reports them in the Forum, with a way to reproduce them. Otherwise, I won't be able to fix them.

Friends integration project

Beside Friends, that is a harbour friendly app, I'm planning to have much more integrated features. I'm introducing another package, that cannot ship in Harbour, that is called "Friends integration".

Those who follow this thread might have heard about it, but it's not about hacking Jolla QML files right now. While I would like to still have patches to contacts etc, I'm leaving this to patchmanager instead, and will focus on something else in Friends integration.

Friends integration will try to blend into Sailfish OS, shipping with a daemon and plugins all around, to make Friends experience better. Right now, I'm working on displaying notifications and opening Friends from the notifications view, but other features will come (share ? accounts integration ? events feed ?)

To try this package, you might need to update to Friends OBS version as well.

Get it

Friends integration is only available in OBS at the moment. Don't try to use the version on OpenRepos, it is badly broken.

I'm using github to host code. Transifex link will come soon.


And sorry for Harmattan users, I don't have my Harmattan devices anymore, and don't develop for it anymore.

No, unless ported. Harmattan already has a friends app albeit not completely complete.
