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
Note that entering your server URL or IP will redirect you to your admin page to install the app.
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?
