Now I know AppImages are meant to be built by upstream developers, but there’s a discussion there (#874), that I started, but I started it around a year ago and it seems to have stagnated, I think things will speed up if I made the AppImage myself.
The problem is providing dependencies. What distribution does the AppImage OBS target build against? That way I can query what packages are available for said distro and know which I can list in the YAML as dependencies (and hence which ones I have to package instead). I’ve tried building Avogadro2 too, but the https://github.com/openchemistry/openchemistry repository has several submodules that need to be initiated and OBS gives an error as it doesn’t seem to handle submodules well. If I knew how to get the YAML to package from tar archives instead of source repositories (as the AppImage template the OBS provides doesn’t show how to use anything but source repo types) I might succeed with these efforts.
Thanks for your time,
