The new KDE Applications website is now up


The old one was a manual task of keeping the metadata up to date while this
one scans builds from build.kde.org and git in search of appstream
appdata.xml files and converts them into the required info.

Technical info at

If you see mistakes, go and fix them by updating the appstream files.
These files are also used in distro packages and appstores and new
container packages so a fix there goes a long way.


Icons come from Breeze.  If you see an issue with an icon I'm sure the
Breeze folks would be happy for a fix

Future work is to make the content more pretty and relevant.  Adding in non
app projects in some way.  Adding in version numbers and release notes and
other features supported by appstream.  Workboard at

KDE needs to up its game for the support it provides for our applications,
here's to a great future for them :)
