  • GitHub repo flathub

    Pull requests for new applications to be added

    Flathub is the biggest repo for flatpaks, however you can totally host your own if you want to. Flathub has some additional requirements that you need to pass. You can find all of them on their wiki. All you need to do afterwards is just make a PR and wait for it to be reviewed.

  • It would be nice to see some Crystal apps on flathub (I believe Hashbrown is the only one at the moment). A crystal sdk (like rust's) and a shard builder tool to generate the shards automatically would greatly improve the experience, if anyone is up to doing them.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo flatpak-builder-tools

    Various helper tools for flatpak-builder

  • GitHub repo flatpak

    Linux application sandboxing and distribution framework

    On this post, we are going to focus on Flatpak. Flatpak is a technology that aims to solve some of the issues that modern package systems have:
