[Unknown] @dcardinal , if you are specifically referring to downloads, you are exactly right, platform-release is the combination of platform and platform-client , pre-arranged in an opinionated way to install them together at once.
A more flexible installation would result from downloading and setting up platform and platform-client separately , but the product functions would be the same.
@ChiefObiorah_twitter This came up last year:
[David Losada, Ushahidi] for the mobile app, I think the Ushahidi branding files are not included in the open source repository . The branding folder contains the following files:
android_banner.png: PNG image data, 1280 x 720, 8-bit/color RGB, non-interlaced android_feature.png: PNG image data, 1024 x 500, 8-bit/color RGB, non-interlaced android_icon.png: PNG image data, 512 x 512, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced android_promo.png: PNG image data, 180 x 120, 8-bit/color RGB, non-interlaced build.json: JSON data icon.png: PNG image data, 1024 x 1024, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced splash.png: PNG image data, 2732 x 2732, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced
you would have those files under
projects/<your project name>in the mobile source repo . And then set the environment variable PROJECT=<your project name> as the ionic commands are invoked
[John Obiorah]  Sameroom: [David Losada, Ushahidi] that’s https://github.com/ushahidi/platform-mobile , @John Obiorah
<<< Thank you guys.
[John Obiorah]  Sameroom: [Unknown] hi @John Obiorah . It should just be a matter of having the configured the proper URL pointing at the API endpoint /sms/smssync , and the same shared secret key of your choosing
<<< So how exactly would I get this accomplished. Do you have a documentation on how to achieve this or could you please tell the file to edit in order to achieve this.

[John Obiorah]  Sameroom: [David Losada, Ushahidi] @John Obiorah please take a look at the Platform user manual, if you haven’t yet: https://docs.ushahidi.com/ushahidi-platform-user-manual/3.-configuring-your-deployment/3.4-data-sources#3-4-5-smssync
<<< Many thanks David Losada. The link you shared is quite helpful. The Ushahidi mobile app on Google Play upon download to android devices renders the survey forms broken. I dunno whether this experience has been reported by others using self-hosted platform-release system. Another question I have is what could be to make the Ushahidi deployment to be stunningly fast? Could this be achieved with Redis?
[Unknown] Hello @jcoonrod, thank you for your feedback. I have notified our developers of your suggestion.
To add Bengali to the list of languages, you need a transifex account to join a translation team.
This will guide you https://docs.ushahidi.com/platform-developer-documentation/translation/software-localization-and-translation on how to go about translating.
Transifex provides you with an editor that gives you space to work on the content that you want to translate. This guide will redirect to articles that will help you get started and show you the steps you need to take.
Please log into your deployment to see all responses via the chat messenger.
[John Obiorah]  Sameroom: [Unknown] Hi @John Obiorah https://github.com/ushahidi/platform-release/releases/download/v5.3.1/ushahidi-platform-release-v5.3.1.tar.gz should hopefully resolve your issues
<<< The logo image still appear broken and so are all posts or submissions with images.
[John Obiorah]  Sameroom: [Unknown] @John Obiorah , is there any way you could share with us your URL and configuration details (.env file, configuration folder, description of your setup)? You can do that confidentially by sending a message to email@example.com
<<< I'll do that in the next hour.
[Unknown] Hello @John Obiorah … saw you
.env and I believe something is missing … can you add the below to you .env file and try again
this should tell the framework that platform is built on where to find your images.
