AppImages

A list of AppImages on the net. Feel free to add your projects to this list.

Upstream AppImages

This section lists AppImages available for download from upstream projects or vendors. Upstream means that you get the AppImage directly from the original authors of the software with no intermediaries like distributions.

We ask upstreams to not just publish the resulting AppImages, but also the scripts used to generate them.

3rd-party provided AppImages

This section lists AppImages available for download from 3rd-parties.

Example AppImages and recipes

The following recipes are meant as examples. They are produced in an automated workflow in the https://github.com/probonopd/AppImages project. Upstream projects are welcome to provide official, upstream-packaged AppImages.

You can run the yml files using the meta recipe at https://github.com/probonopd/AppImages/blob/master/recipes/meta/.

Central repository

Besides this page, there is no central repository of all AppImages yet.

If there is enough interest, we might provide an "AppImage Hub" where upstreams can point to their AppImage releases in a directory, with aspects like testing on many distributions and possibly certain quality thresholds enforced. Such an "AppImage Hub" would of course be entirely optional, like Docker Hub is to Docker.
