Merge 2 AppImages


I have created 2 AppImages for a client-server application: one AppImage for a NodeJS application and the other AppImage for the Python Server (the NodeJS app connects to the Python app through websocket).

The two apps work fine, but for user convenience, I would like to merge the 2 AppImages so that they always starts and stop together in one click. Is it possible to do so?

I was thinking to extract the 2 Appimages in 2 separates folders, then merge these 2 folders and combine the AppRun, .desktop and icon files. Is this a correct approach? Anything else?

Thanks for your suggestions!
