Managing Multiple Projects on DevDB Just Got Easier
To date we’ve had many thousands of projects added to our Development Database (or DevDB for short), which benefits developers by allowing for more control over development projects (with tabs for screenshots, downloads, bug reports, feature requests, Q&A, and more) and helps XDA users discover the best ROMs, kernels, and apps for their devices.
We’ve just added a feature to DevDB which will make it much easier to manage the same project across multiple devices with a handy variable system. Users can now set up variables to cover common installation instructions, credits, bugs, and other repeated information so that anywhere the variable is placed, the preset text will show up. The user can set his or her own variables such that “[#InstallationInstructions]” could be used for installation instructions, and so forth. Access the Variable Manager to set up variables for your development projects. And of course, if you have any suggestions or run into any problems with DevDB, there’s a thread for that.

Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
