Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-1153) Release as flatpak or snap package
Date Mon, 18 Sep 2017 15:50:00 GMT

Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSTUDIO-1153:
----------------------------------------------

Generally speaking, Studio being an app, not a service, it does not need a complex setup to
have it running on a linux machine. A {{tar.gz}} is almost all you need, and this is what
we provide.

We would of course appreciate if someone were to propose a better solution, like the one you
propose, but we currently don't have the time to check what exists and how it works.

But this is open source, and every contribution is of course very welcome ! So feel free to
propose something that would create better packages - and of course that is compatible with
AL 2.0 license ! -.

FTR, we provide {{rpm}} and {{deb}} packages for the Apache Directory Server, using an old
version of the Tanuki wrapper (which sadly does not offer a support for Windows 64), and we
might migrate to something like YAJSW sooner or later.

> Flatpak [1] and Snap [2] are new package formats that bundle all dependencies in the
package. They are available in (almost) all distros, allowing a developer to create their
own release channel (including updates) without the procedural requirements of getting into
a particular distro. (Although that is still a great goal.)
> Would you consider releasing Apache Directory Studio via Flatpak or Snap?
