Self-Contained Applications With #AppImage talk at +All Things Open by Klaatu Einzelganger: #Linux and BSD packaging is the best, most stream-lined, most integrated system in computing, but the one thing it isn’t is self-contained. What do you do when you want to build “portable apps” for a Unix platform?

It’s time to learn about AppImage, an open source technology that bundles an application’s dependencies and executablesw and assets into an ISO file, which can be launched with a double-click. Better yet, it can be saved to a USB drive, passed on to another computer, and launched there, too. No installation required, but total desktop integration, with options to have the application listed as a .desktop entry in the system menu.

If you write software or package software or manage a network with poor internet access, you need to learn about AppImage!
