Description (last modified by anonymous maybe)

This project https://appimage.org/

allow you to make all needed packages for program available and executable to run with user privileges in one single shot.

so instead of supporting Debian.Fedora,Slackware…etc of GNU/Linux distros. we will have only ONE program that runs on all of them regardless how their structural design is.

This will save alot of headache and attract other users which i2p doesnt support their distros yet.

some other advantages mentioned here https://github.com/AppImage/AppImageKit/blob/appimagetool/master/README.md:


Applications packaged as an AppImage can run on many distributions (including Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, CentOS, elementaryOS, Linux Mint, and others)
    One app = one file = super simple for users: just download one AppImage file, make it executable, and run
    No unpacking or installation necessary
    No root needed
    No system libraries changed
    Works out of the box, no installation of runtimes needed
    Optional desktop integration with appimaged
    Optional binary delta updates, e.g., for continuous builds (only download the binary diff) using AppImageUpdate
    Can optionally GPG2-sign your AppImages (inside the file)
    Works on Live ISOs
    Can use the same AppImages when dual-booting multiple distributions
    Can be listed in the AppImageHub central directory of available AppImages
    Can double as a self-extracting compressed archive with the --appimage-extract parameter
