Deliver Apps

If you want to deliver applications as the Author or Packager, please read below guides.

Currently there is not an open self-service claiming channel, if there is, we will announce it in our community news.

How to be an author

  • Deliver your own app as an author, or claim to be the author if your app has already been in Deepin Store. Please contact appstore@deepin.com
  • Requirements: The author should be the original personal developer or developer team, and the application should meet the collection rules or has been put in Deepin Store.

How to be a packager
At present, the automatic packaging channel is not open. To be a packager, please provide the package and the metadata according to the requirements of Deepin Store. Here is the process:

1. Provide the package info and the metadata in personal platform of Deepin Store.
2. Contact appstore@deepin.com with deepin ID, Github ID, project address, introduction, name,email and author info.
3.The package name should be?unique. (For example, dde plugin: dde-***-plugin; the application: ***-music, ***-movie; icon theme: ***-icon-theme; gtk theme: gtk-theme-***.)

Personal Platform

Notices:

  • After becoming a packager of a certain app, when the source app is updated, the packager must package and update the app in Deepin Store within one week. If there are three times of delays, or an update is delayed for more than two weeks, the packager will have no permission on the app any longer, and the subsequent donation will no longer belong to the packager.
  • If the original author provides a qualified package, or there is already a qualified packager, we will not accept a new packager for that app.
  • Application in flatpak format is in priority, so if the app does not have a flatpak package, the packager that delivers it in flatpak format will be accepted.

Recommend Apps

To recommend an app, please recommend it in main menu of Deepin Store, or write it down in the post, your recommendations will be collected regularly.
