I saw on several apps’ websites that they have “install with” or “deploy to” sections (e.g., https://github.com/RocketChat/Rocket.Chat#deployment)
So I thought that creating such a badge for YunoHost would make sense to increase our visibility.
The problem is that we can’t link directly to users’ servers because of decentralization. So I built a small prototype similar to the “share to diaspora” badges. The badge redirects to a page in which users enter their server’s URL. They are then redirected to the app install page of their admin panel.
This is now part of YunoHost: https://github.com/YunoHost/install-app
You can see it live for Rainloop (official) for instance:
Note that entering your server URL or IP will redirect you to your admin page to install the app.
Or here with Duniter (community):
Note that in this case you are not redirected to the install page (limitation of community app). You have to manually enter the git URL to install. I’ll open a ticket.
So the question is: for which apps should we advertise this to official maintainers?
