Technology, features and OS support
Polarr for Linux is built with Electron packaged app wrapping Photo Editor for ChromeOS offline, therefore the features in the Linux version is nearly identical to our ChromeOS distribution. The .deb installer package was created and tested on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. We did not test on other Linux OSs.
Purchase pro features
As the Linux package is a wrapper version from our ChromeOS package, you can buy a Chrome OS license from Photo Editor for ChromeOS offline page, enter your PayPal or CC number, and receive login credentials from your payment email. Your login credential will work for both the Chrome OS and the Linux .deb package.
The difference between the Linux version and ChromeOS version is that the Linux version uses LibRAW embedded into the package and can decode and process RAW photos better than the ChromeOS version.
You can contact email@example.com if you have any question.

What is the purpose of this Github page? Can I contribute?
Polarr carries a proprietary license, the intention of this public repo is to keep track of version updates for upcoming .deb packages, or store scripts to help users to install Polarr on other Linux OS. You can send us pull requests if you want to document how to install the .deb package elsewhere.
