I have been told that AppImage is the new hotness for Linux Apps.
I have been able to download and run AppImages.
What I can’t find?
HOW DO INSTALL THE DAMN TOOLS TO BUILD MY OWN APPIMAGES?
A bright, shiny penny for anyone who can point me at the page of docs.
@freakboy3742 The low-level tool is appimagetool¹, it assumes that you already have an “AppDir”. It is available as an AppImage.
A higher level tool is linuxdeploy², you give it an executable, an icon and an .desktop-file and it builds an AppImage. The installation instructions are in the readme.
There is also a Packaging Guide³ with more information and links to all mentioned tools.
