Mobile versions of openSUSE sites

In Hackweek IV, at the beginning of 2011 we started to evaluate how to bring our tools like the build service, openfate feature tracking and SUSE Studio to mobile devices like the iPhone, Android or Blackberry. Instead of writing native apps for each of those platforms, we created mobile versions of the pages, that have a look & feel like a native app.

Just start the web browser on your mobile and visit one of the sites listed below. You’ll automatically be redirected to the mobile site.

Available mobile services



The openSUSE build service mobile page currently offers browsing of projects and packages, checking the build status and listing requests.

Url: http://build.opensuse.org

Android app: https://market.android.com/details?id=org.opensuse.android.obswrapper



The mobile feature tracking page enables you to stay up to date with all changes to the feature tracking database, search for features and display the features details.

Url: http://features.opensuse.org

Android app: https://market.android.com/details?id=org.opensuse.android.openfate


Studio Gallery

The gallery mobile page gives you an overview of the currently published appliances of SUSE Studio.

Url: http://susegallery.com

Android app: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.susestudio.android.gallery


YaSTroid is an android app that connects to a machine running WebYaST (with minor edits). Currently it allows you to read some of the data provided by WebYaST.

Android app: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.novell.android.yastroid

Technical details

The mobile sites are based on HTML 5 and jquery mobile. For the rails integration we use the has_mobile_views plugin.
