I just tried to install it (from my phone) and here is the screen displayed :

When I try to install another app, there is no problem.

Thanks for reporting the issue @Mamie. This should now be resolved in facilmap_ynh-3.3.0~ynh2.
You can retry installing it passing the repository (GitHub - YunoHost-Apps/facilmap_ynh: Facilmap package for YunoHost ) to “Install custom app” section. (Maybe to install it simply choosing it in apps list, there is a delay for the new version to be taken into consideration.)

The app is now installed, from the web admin :slightly_smiling_face:

I still have a question : is it possible to have the interface public, while limitating the map creation to logged-in users ?
(I would like to create a map and to have it public, but I do not want the public to create or modify maps).

I don’t think this is achievable with the current facilmap. As far as I know, facilmap itself doesn’t seem to have any concept of login or private/public. If you know the view url of a map, you can view it, if you know the edit url, edit it…
I think the feature you’re looking for would first have to be thought of on the facilmap core side (some setting that allows to disable map creation in some contexts). I think it’d be worth opening an issue on the facilmap repo, maybe the developer of facilmap would be interested in it :slight_smile:

Huuuu it looks like the same feature as umap :slight_smile: but locally stored :slight_smile:

Thx ! I’ll try this :wink:
