Insync as Flatpak (Linux)


#1

Can you release the Insync client as a Flatpak on Flathub?
Since both Spotify and Steam is now available on Flathub, the only application that I currently have to use third-party repos for is Insync. It would be great if you could offer your client there as well.

We will look into this. Thanks for the suggestion!


#3

Are there any news about future releases via flatpak or snappy?


#4

I would think releasing Insync as a flatpak or snap package would be high on the priority list as it would cut down on the time it takes to test each Linux version across the different distributions. Additionally the package could be hosted on Flathub rather than the Insync staff having to host their own repos which it seems aren’t updated regularly (1.4.6 isn’t in the Fedora repo yet). Personally I would prefer flatpak over snap since RHEL and CentOS do not include support for snap.

Just noting support for this request. A snap package or flatpak would be appreciated!

I did some work on a flatpak for this a while ago. If anyone is willing to finish it up, test it and put it on Flathub, feel free. https://gitlab.com/Limero/Flatpaks/tree/master/insync

Hello all!

Just to let everyone know, we are currently working on this :wink: If you want to help test, let us know in the comments below and @Kurt_Ko will send you test builds.

We treat Linux as a first class citizen.

Using Insync as a Flatpak would be really cool! If you guys are still looking for testers, I’d love to try this out.
