AppImage universal package for future linux builds

Post by hidralisco » Thu May 18, 2017 12:57 pm

Hey there,

I was wondering if you would consider releasing the future Linux builds for Freeablo under a convenient AppImage universal package.

We've recently began testing this on the OpenXcom project and it seems to be working really well.

More info about it here: http://appimage.org/

Actually, I've been using a project called hunter: https://github.com/ruslo/hunter lately, which allows you to build all your deps as static libraries so you can just ship one binary. Combined with compiling against an ancient glibc version, that should produce portable binaries out of the box. Does look cool though. Also, nice to see people from other foss remakes appearing around here, please do hang around :p
