Welcome to Appimage Recipes

This is a collection of templates for building AppImages on Opencode, which is part of the OpenDesktop platform.


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.
