    Is it normal for the DNS block method to break this app?

    Homebrew App Store 2.2
    for Switch and Wii U

    by 4TU Team

    This update should address a lot of the slowness and crashing that people have experienced. We have other infrastructure-related changes that we're still working on, but are publishing this now to make sure these client bugfixes are out there!

    App Download: https://gitlab.com/4TU/hb-appstore/releases
    View Online: https://apps.fortheusers.org

    In July 2019, we passed our third year of hosting the Homebrew App Store service since starting on the Wii U! Thank you to everyone who has used the App Store or otherwise shown support for this project. You're the reason we keep doing this.

    The App Store team is: pwsincd, rw-r-r_0644, CompuCat, crc32, vgmoose, quarky, Whovian9369
    Our homepage: https://fortheusers.org
    Chat with us on Discord: https://discord.fortheusers.org

    Changelog
    Wii U + Switch App Client
    • No more loading screen! Images and metadata are now downloaded on-the-fly, and you are dropped immediately into the app listing (by rw-r-r_0644!)
    • Abstracted UI components into the standalone library Chesto
      • Chesto is a declarative, element-based library for creating lightweight user interfaces in SDL2. Along with the App Store console client, it also powers vgedit.
      • Chesto uses resinfs rather than switch/wiiu romfs for storing and loading compressed assets from memory (by rw-r-r_0644)
      • Want to give it a try? Have a peek at CompuCat's example, ChestoTesto!
    • Shows progress while extracting files from the zip package
    • Detailed Credits page to fairly highlight importance of people's contributions in the scene
    • Recovery mode added, accessed by pressing repeatedly L/R immediately after launching
    • Bugfixes and Oversights
      • Fixes issues when package structure totally changes (libget#8)
      • Sorting button no longer occasionally crashes
      • Files download to disk to avoid being stored in memory (Thanks TotalJustice!)
      • Onscreen quit button added (Thanks jacquesCedric!)
    • Platform Specific
      • Switch: Uses https for default Switch repo (sorry for dragging feet on this!)
      • Switch: Themes are now excluded from the "All Apps" category
      • Switch: If launched in applet mode, uses Wii U style banners
      • Wii U: Fix crackling/popping during music playback (by Quarktheawesome)
      • Wii U: Fix bug that duplicates appstore entries in HBL upon upgrading... (See Notice*)
        • TL;DR: after updating on Wii U there will be two appstore apps in HBL. Launching either one will work, and it will clean up the extra one
    • Move primary development from GitHub to GitLab
      • We’ll continue to upload releases to GitHub for the moment, but that repo will eventually be deprecated and direct users to GitLab. ↩︎
    Sources
    *Wii U Notice: The duplicate appstore entries in HBL was an oversight, but should resolve itself after launching either HBL app after the update. It has to do with old users migrating from .elf to .rpx, and me trying to consolidate it for each platform. After updating, the issue should not occur again in the future due to libget#8 being fixed.

    Hey I'm trying to get the Appstore on my Wii U but when I launch the Homebrew Launcher nothing appears.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    And "watching" the video aka going to wiiubru website doesn't seem to work

    We have a new web feature: detailed app download stats!

    You can now visit the Statistics page on the Web UI: https://apps.fortheusers.org/stats for a detailed day-by-day breakdown of our web and app downloads from users of the App Store.

    This can be accessed either from the sidebar, or by clicking on a specific app and choosing "View Details", and allows for pretty graphs like the one below:

    [​IMG]

    Specific graphs can also be linked by copying the URL if you see something interesting: https://apps.fortheusers.org/stats?...-shell&time=1598646196506:1599855796506:false

    The range can be adjusted along the bottom, and new apps can be added or removed at the top of the page. We hope that this feature is a good resource for developers to gauge interest and track trends with how their apps are downloaded. It may also be useful as a tool to see what other people are interested in.

    With these changes, the download counts within the app are also finally fixed as well. We're hoping to continue working on more transparent features like this so that developers don't view HBAS as such a black box, and can instead see it as a useful platform to showcase their app on.

    If you are a developer, you are likely also interested in seeing your Github Releases download stats and adding them to the HBAS numbers. One website to view Github downloads on is here: https://somsubhra.com/github-release-stats/

    Source code for our web frontend is available here under the GPLv3 license: https://gitlab.com/4TU/hbas-frontend
