The App Store offers a new and incompatible API for Nextcloud 11+, however the legacy API for 9 and 10 has been added recently.
We are looking for testers to see if the API is working on Nextcloud 9 and 11. Keep in mind that this is still beta software: do not use it in production and if you do, make backups regularely. It would be great if you know how to create bug reports on GitHub and if you are able to debug Nextcloud if errors occur.
To switch your instance (9 or 10) to the new App Store, please add the following to your config/config.php:
The latest update fixes the never ending spinner, and I see the category names have been shortened. However, several of the categories are now empty. For example, Authentication, Files, Integration, Monitoring, Office, and Social have no apps. Is it supposed to show empty categories?
I don’t think that’s a problem. An empty category means no apps. Some categories are also empty on the app store if you check the web site.
By hiding empty categories you basically hide the category from developers and users so apps are less likely to get published in these categories.
Once more apps are published on the store, the categories will automatically be filled. Also keep in mind that the API has an expiration date: Once Nextcloud 9 and 10 run out of support, the API will likely be removed.
