# Prebuilt APKs
A collection of the APKs used by the Lineageos for microG project.
These are just the official prebuilt binaries, signed by the corresponding developers.
This is a collection of FOSS APKs, coupled with the respective Android.mk for an
easy integration in the Android build system.
These are just the official unmodified* prebuilt binaries, signed by the
corresponding developers.
__*except for com.google.android.maps, as the JAR and the XML have been extracted from the ZIP on the [microG's GitHub release page](https://github.com/microg/android_frameworks_mapsv1/releases)__
To include them in your build just add their name in CUSTOM_PACKAGES (for
example in vendor/lineage/config/common.mk).
The included APKs are:
* FDroid packages (binaries sourced from [here](https://f-droid.org/packages/org.fdroid.fdroid/) and [here](https://f-droid.org/packages/org.fdroid.fdroid.privileged/))
* FDroid: a catalogue of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) applications for the Android platform
* FDroid Privileged Extension: a FDroid extension to ease the installation/removal of apps
* microG packages (binaries sourced from [here](https://microg.org/download.html) and [here](https://github.com/microg/android_frameworks_mapsv1))
* GmsCore: the main component of microG, a FOSS reimplementation of the Google Play Services (requires GsfProxy and FakeStore for full functionality)
* GsfProxy: a GmsCore proxy for legacy GCM compatibility
* FakeStore: an empty package that mocks the existence of the Google Play Store
* com.google.android.maps: legacy microG's mapsv1 reimplementation
* LineageOS packages (binaries sourced from [here](https://download.lineageos.org/extras))
* YahooWeatherProvider: "Yahoo" weather provider for the LineageOS' weather service
* WundergroundWeatherProvider: "Weather Underground" weather provider for the LineageOS' weather service
* OpenWeatherMapWeatherProvider: "Open Weather Map" weather provider for the LineageOS' weather service
They are coupled with Android.mk: to include them in your project add them to PRODUCT_PACKAGES.
