I have just added to the IDE a new package type to the packager wizard:
You are welcome to test it and report any problem. I think it won't work
It is not entirely finished. Support for adding extra dependencies and
extra files is not done yet.
AFAIK, The AppImage limitations are the following:
- You need the 'appimage-builder' tool. See:
- This tool apparently works only on Debian, Ubuntu and ArchLinux.
Please check that if you can.
- AppImage does not like applications using OpenGL. Please check that too.
- The resulting AppImage files are big (at least 50 Mb) and slow to
start (I mean slower than it should).
Otherwise, it's cool.
