Distribution platforms

The software I distribute is available on many platforms. However, distributing it solely on my website does not help their visibility, nor their ease of installation. As such, like many other, I publish my software on certain distribution platforms.

List of platforms on which I published at least one software:

{{< sectionSkewed "#D2D2D2" "#EEEEEE" >}}


The majority of these distribution platforms provide a badge to indicate that their is available on the publisher's store.
Unfortunately, the majority of these badges are only available in English, or are out of date with their current design.
For that reason, I've created (or recreated in some cases) the badges for each store I produce to fit both their design guidelines and Omegamma's design.

To include these badges on your own website, you should include the badge stylesheet using this HTML Link:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="">
and then include whatever badge you need.

Note: The logos on these badges are copyrighted by their owners, and appropriate copyright is given with them.

Want to add a badge or translate them in your language?

Translating a badge:

  1. Check if the official badge sources don't have a translation already, if so, it's text will be used as reference.
  2. Download the existing English -text.svg badge.
  3. Translate the text. You can use software like Inkscape to edit the SVG directly.
  4. Fork Omegamma.
  5. Create, if it does not exist already, a directory with your language code.
  6. If the directory did not exist before, make sure to copy the script from one of the other directories.
  7. Put the badge under <store name>-text.svg.
  8. (Optional, only if all store badges are translated) Register the language in the badgeTable.html shortcode.
  9. Create a pull request for merging and adding your badge to Omegamma.

Creating a new badge:

  1. Check if an official badge source for that store doesn't exist and their potential associated trademarks.
  2. If so, download the SVG version of the badge. Otherwise create a new SVG. You can use software like Inkscape to edit the SVG directly.
  3. The SVG item must have a solid background, with no border, or rounded corners. If the official source has some, remove them.
  4. Fork Omegamma.
  5. For every language your new badge supports, put the icon under <language>/<store name>-text.svg.
  6. If your icon is subject to trademark, make sure you have the right to use it for that context, and add the trademark text to the repository's
