[closed] Make map lists public

Post by jidanni » Wed Sep 09, 2020 10:39 pm

http://www.offline-maps.net/en/help/maps says
What if an on-demand map is not working anymore?
or also perhaps: is working, but seems to get an older edition of the
map in question.

Well in this case it would be nice to be able to compare all the
parameters of the maps in question, from the comfort of a desktop
computer.

So it would be nice if all these map lists that the app uses,
(Community, etc.) could be public on the net, for us to examine, without
needing to dig them out of the app.

In fact, as they are not part of the proprietary app guts, perhaps maintain them on GitHub.

Indeed, that would make them easier to maintain as others could directly propose corrections.

The list is already public, in the way that when you choose a map from the list, the config file is downloaded on your device as a simple text file users can read and edit freely.

Concerning a public repository, I don't have the time currently (I don't think I'll have the time in the future anyway), but because of what being said just above, any user is free to make it.
In fact, someone made one here.
