Hi, my name is Marius Gripsgard also known as mariogrip and i’m the creator and main developer of Ubports.
Ubports is a home for devices such as the OnePlus One, Nexus 5 and many more still in development, Ubports is also a home to developers who wish to port Ubuntu to devices, these can be any phone, tablet, or other device that doesn’t currently run Ubuntu touch.
Porting to devices takes a lot of time and effort, that doesn’t even include maintaining previously ported devices, keeping the servers up and running and the Ubports websites up to date among other timely things such as writing documentation, being active on forums, and developing and maintaining the android tree and our portcraft which was created in hopes to make porting to devices a lot easier, and this is mostly done by one person who can’t afford to do this development full time.
Don’t get me wrong, I really love doing this and I would love to work on this full time, but as the situation is now, I have to have a job and working on Ubports at my free time. That’s where patreon come in, I want to work on Ubports as my full time job.
You've probably seen what I've been able to accomplish over the past couple of months. If you enjoyed the ride so far, please consider supporting me as a patron so we can continue porting it together! https://www.patreon.com/ubports
