Announcing the Androidacy Modules Repository
Androidacy is very pleased to announce the Androidacy Modules repository, the slick, user friendly, in-house alternative and future replacement for the old Magisk Modules Repository! The Androidacy Modules Repository is your one-stop shop for all the old modules you know from the previous repository, and new ones too.
Replacing the old modules repository – what?
Let’s back up a little bit. In a previous post, we covered this (you can find it on our blog), but we’ll recap: basically, for a scary couple months it looked as if Magisk could be very well dead, as John Wu (the creator of Magisk) had been hired by Google, and working on Magisk, with all of it’s SafetyNet bypassing and Hide, seemed to run contrary to that.
The good news is he was able to figure out a middle ground both his new bosses and the community could stomach – but the bad news is Hide had to be ditched. He also announced Zgyisk, a new implementation for Magisk that allows many exciting possibilities, and the deprecation and removal of the Modules Repository in a future Magisk release. We’ve already seen this happening in the master branch of Magisk, so it’s definitely going to come true.
We have not yet crafted our answer to Hide being removed but we are very pleased to announce after weeks of hard work, the Androidacy Modules Repository is out in public beta, as our answer to the old repository being deprecated.
So…. what is the Modules Repository?
The new Androidacy Modules Repository is a place for you to find all the modules you could ever need. Find, discover, and search for all your old favorites. We currently have feature parity with the old Repository found directly in Magisk Manager, but plan to add new and exciting things – such as module installation directly from your computer, without having to copy any zips to your device! All of this, in an easy to use web based interface.
The user experience
On first load, you’ll be greeted with a small intro and a loading indicator. Be patient for it to load the first time – there’s a lot of things going on in the background to facilitate API communication. Future loads should be faster.
Once it loads up, you’ll see a list of modules – all with a brief description, author info, and current version. There’s also a live search at the top, so you can search by name or codename. In a future release we plan to add author based search – stay tuned!
Once you’ve found the module you like, you can click the Info button to get a more detailed description, or the Download button to be taken to a page with all the versions of the module we have. Please keep in mind we have no versions from before the internal release of the Repository – so you may not see all of the old versions.
For Module Developers
If you don’t develop modules, feel free to skip this part!
If you already have a repository in the old Magisk-Modules-Repo GitHub organization, nothing needs done on your part. When you release a new version, update
versionCode appropriately in your
module.prop. Note this is a slight change from the old repository – just
versionCode may not always pick up the changes on our end!
For developers that want to apply, we’ll be excited to have you! With our repository you’ll gain access to an exclusive audience of users, with a seal of approval that shows them your module is tested and safe to use! We’re hammering out a more streamlined application process and dedicated page, but for now, here’s some guidelines. SHOULD, MUST, and related terms are used as defined in RFC2119 . The Magisk developer guide is here
We’ll be releasing a more fleshed out version of the guidelines in the future, but if you think you qualify – hit us up on our contact page!
Remember – the Repository is still technically in beta. We hope there aren’t, but there may still be some bugs to be ironed out. You can hit us up on Telegram (@androidacy_discussions) to report any bugs you find and give feedback. We would also like feedback on if our users would like to see an Xposed and Riru module repository, perhaps alongside the existing Modules Repository.
Otherwise, enjoy! We hope to keep updating it and adding new features, so check back often!
You can also leave feedback in the comments below, but beware we don’t regularly check those!
