Subject: [Dhis2-users] dhis self-service app store is available
Hi all,

the new self-service app store for DHIS 2 is available today. You can find it here:





The app store lets you sign in and upload your own apps. You can find detailed instructions for uploading apps here:





The basics of uploading an app:


1. Sign in using your Google account ID from the top-right corner.

2. Click Upload in the left side menu, enter all app info and select your app ZIP bundle.

3. Click Upload and await approval by the DHIS 2 team. 

4. You can later add more images and additional versions of your app.


The apps must be i) generic, meaning usable not just by a single instance of DHIS 2 but any instance and ii) have an open source license, allowing others to use it free of charge.



We hope that this will encourage the developer community to create generic apps and share them with others through the app store. This initiative should remove bottleneck of manual upload by the DHIS 2 team and allow for self-service upload and maintenance of apps.


As always feedback is appreciated - please use the users list for questions, comments and feedback on the new app store.



best regards,


the DHIS 2 development team
