  • Translate

Currently supported languages: English, German

Get started:

  1. If not already supported (see above), request a new language by opening an issue on GitHub and I will add the necessary code for the second step
  2. Translate an already existing language (see below)

Translating guide: Go to the .arb file of the language you want to translate (for example, this file for German) and change the text inside the “” quotation marks. Use the English translation as a reference for the text to be translated to the target language.

Additionally, if you want to translate the local app name (default: “Libre Camera”), go to the strings.xml file of the language you want to translate (for example, this file for German and translate the “Libre Camera” text inside the string elements, like this German translation: <string name="AppName">Libre Kamera</string>

  1. Clone this repository
  2. Switch to the project’s directory and run the project in debug mode by selecting an Android device or emulator in your preferred Flutter IDE and running the app in debug mode
  3. To test the final app, run the app by installing the apk on an Android device or emulator. To get the apk, run the following command in your terminal: flutter build apk --split-per-abi – the output apk’s will be generated at librecamera/build/app/outputs/apk/release/. If you want only one apk without splitting the platforms (results in slightly bigger size) use flutter build apk
