Recipe for building AppImage from C/C++ projects
Welcome to Appimage Recipes
The process of producing an AppImage file starts by creating a relocatable and totally standalone installation of your binaries. Then it’s compressed into a squashfs file and appended to a runtime. While it’s possible to do it by hand this is not a trivial task therefore several tools where created to make your life easier.
More information about the core concepts of the AppImage can be found at: docs.appimage.org
Here we cover how to use each tool to produce AppImages on the Opencode platform. Working examples are provided with a detailed documentation of each step.
