AppImage

Automating the creation of an AppImage

Hello everyone!

So I’m brand new to AppImage, but have been tasked with creating a BASH script that automates the process of creating an AppImage from a pre-existng package. I know that in order to do this, you must create a YML file for use with pkg2AppImage. However, I want the bash script to work on different systems, not just one where the YML is already on the filesystem. I guess my question is what is the best way to script a YML for pkg2AppImage to use. I greatly appreciate any help that can be given.

Hello Sean, what do you mean by “I want the bash script to work on different systems, not just one where the YML is already on the filesystem”? Would combining the YML with the bash script work for you?
