Appimage auto-update?

Hi,

I know some projects have auto-updating Appimages. What about the QStuff Appimages?

I'm on CentOS, so using Appimages is tempting, especially if they auto-update. The alternative is building new versions by hand from time to time, since I can't seem to get most of them to build cleanly in the Fedora copr.

take note that, my stance on AppImages are great but, again in my POV. are just for starters :) one you get the notion it somewhat works as in the prospect, you should and here strongly be encouraged to build or ask for a definitive and compliant build from your distro or package provider.

on every and any conceivable GNU/Linux eco--system, that should be the ultimate rule, believe me.

cheers

I believe you! :) For one, the vee-one apps don't have lv2 versions, which is a bad thing to say the least.

for two :) there's no practical nor technical way to distribute LV2 plugins--or any other kind if that matters--in this containerized way of application deployment, be that AppImage, flatpack, snap(craft.io), whatever... only the stand-alone versions of the vee-ones may be delivered that way... sorry, delivering plugins is not an option there and probably won't ever be.

hyu.
cheers
