Flathub is “the home of hundreds of apps which can be easily installed on any Linux distribution”. Its an freely-accessible, community-maintained, online software collection and distribution platform for Linux. Applications there are packaged, downloaded and run with Flatpak. Flatpak “is a framework for distributing desktop applications across various Linux distributions” according to its documentation.
Flatpak now being available on major Linux distribution now-days, I think having HDFView on Flathub would be a nice addition and would help pushing latest versions to distributions faster.
I’d like to give a try at packaging and maintaining it on Flathub and I’m thus interesting in knowing what the HDF community would think of this initiative.
If that sound about right, I’d use the folowing Application ID for the HDFView Flatpak app:
Any comments welcomed!
