Web App generator
I didn't mean they are not usefull, they are very usefull, but to very limited number of people.
And there are alot of such webapps, so it's really hard to find webaps that are usefull for me.
That is why the webapp-generator is a thing that is nice to have.
@Flohack realtime monitoring public transport! that is great. One of the few things fahrplan app is not able to. Is this webapp also due for germany? If yes, can you provide it?

@Bastos No sorry, its done only for the Vienna public transport system
I agree on your points!
For web-apps in the store, I totally agree that there are too much and only few users use them (even if they can be really useful!!!)
For the alternate-webapp-generator it's better than nothing, but what canonical did was really a wonderful idea!!! Because I'm not a developer and I don't even know how to run a script
That's why I have two questions:
Would it be possible to do something as canonical did, i.e. a server were you insert a link and you can download a .click?
Or a better solution: would it be possible to have a web-app generator on the phone, i.e. an app where you insert a link and it generates an app directly in the phone?
Because I think that web-apps are "useless" in the store (even if I could install your app, I'm in Vienna too ;)), so I think there has to be found a solution even for this one day, and a web-app generator could help !
What do you think about it?
It will be great if you could "generate" web app from the browser on your UT. It will be kinda like bookmark on steroids.
It is a script and you can download it from here:
It uses a config.cfg file, which is included in the zip.
You just have to put your webapps info in config file and run the script.
Someone should make one simple gui web app creator of this. Script is not very user friendly.
Tried to use ubuntu sdk, but it crashes all the time and couldn't transfer web app to device due to unknown error. Is sdk functionality broken with ubports version?
I haven't yet managed to get a working environment on my Ubuntu 16.10 system for compiling click apps. I used to have it working with the Ubuntu SDK, but that was a while ago. I tried to install clickable from the instructions in the wiki, but got stuck on some errors that I didn't manage to resolve.
The webpage that Cannonical had was ok, so if there is someone that can replicate their page, It would be great.
At this moment, I am verry happy, that at least this script exists, so we have a possibility to easily generate webapps.

So first time I tried the webabb generator
Unfortunately without access
Can maybe someone tell me what I have done wrong:
I downloaded and unzipped https://github.com/Winael/ubuntu/blob/master/ubuntuphone/webapps/Reboot/alternate-webapp-generator.zip to my ubuntu 16.04 desktop
I made the alternate-webapp-generator.sh file executable
I edited the config.cfg
# config.cfg export namespace="BastosNamespace" export app_name="xxAppname" export app_title="xxAppTitle" export app_url="http://xx.de" export app_description="A webapp client for xx.de." export app_UA="Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 5.0; Nexus 5) AppleWebkit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/38.0.2125.102 Mobile Safari/537.36" export app_version="0.1" export maintainer_name="xxx" export maintainer_email="email@example.com" export icon_path="/home/xxx/xxx.png"
In terminal I cd to the right folder and run . alternate-webapp-generator.sh
Everything went with success, I get a .click file created
I copied the .click file to my phone
With UT Tweak Tool I installed the .click with sucess
BUT unfortunately the webapp doesnt show up at my apps even not after restart.
Just a stupid question. From what I see from your dummy config file.
Are you sure icon_path is OK? Maybe you forgot the username after /home/ ?
Thanks to @Vehi_MV here is the solution https://forums.ubports.com/topic/469/webapp-generator-clicks-to-get-installed-in-the-phone
Here there is a new solution !
Thank you for this app !

Bonjour à tous,
J'ai essayé "webcam creator" pour créer "20ln France" mais l'icon n'affiche pas la photo
Did you mean: Bonjour à tous, J'ai essayé "webcam creator" pour créer "20 ln France" mais l'icon n'affiche pas la photo
I tried "webcam creator" to create "20ln France" but the icon does not show the picture
@Locamama Hi! Did you select a PNG or SVG Icon?
Je selectionne jpeg
I select jpeg
@Locamama JPG files are not supported, try converting the image to PNG or use another PNG or SVG file that fits with your WebApp
Merci beaucoup pour l'aide, en fait c'était bien marqué . J'ai fait trois essais et tot
Thank you very much for the help, in fact it was well marked . I did three tries and everything works
