This is the documentation for the UBports project. Our goal is to create a Free and open-source (GPL if possible) mobile operating system that converges and respects your freedom.

About UBports

The UBports project was founded by Marius Gripsgard in 2015 and in its infancy was a place where developers could share ideas and educate each other in hopes of bringing the Ubuntu Touch platform to more mobile devices.

After Canonical suddenly announced their plans to terminate support of Ubuntu Touch in April 2017, UBports and its sister projects began work on the open-source code, maintaining and expanding its possibilities for the future.
