“Apps for GNOME” is a New Web Portal to Showcase Best Linux Apps for GNOME

Filed under

There are several apps built for GNOME. Most of the stock (default) GNOME apps do not get enough spotlight as a separate mention.

While Flathub as a platform helps highlight some fantastic applications for GNOME, it limits to Flatpak apps only.

Also, it is not just dedicated to GNOME, of course.

Hence, there is a new website to focus more on the GNOME ecosystem and highlight the best GNOME apps.

"Apps For GNOME" Launches To Highlight GNOME Apps

  • "Apps For GNOME" Launches To Highlight GNOME Apps

    The GNOME project has launched "Apps For GNOME" at for highlighting the ecosystem of available GNOME applications.

    There is Flathub and such for highlighting many of the user visible GNOME applications but limited to those that are available in Flatpak form but also not exclusively limited to GNOME apps. There hasn't been a comprehensive, modern, user-friendly web-site for outlining all of the GNOME apps and inviting participation until now with this Apps for GNOME.

New Website Launched to Showcase GNOME Apps

  • New Website Launched to Showcase GNOME Apps

    I bet you are. Finding cool new Linux software to play with is a major reason why people read blogs like this one (and we write about GTK apps often, so consider bookmarking us).

    Chances are you’re already familiar with GNOME’s core apps like Nautilus and Calculator as they (usually) come preinstalled in Linux distros that make use of GNOME.

    But there’s a more diverse ecosystem of software out there — and GNOME wants more people to know about it.

    Enter the new “Apps For GNOME” website.

'Apps for GNOME' site aims to improve discovery of the project

  • 'Apps for GNOME' site aims to improve discovery of the project's best applications

    The GNOME project has created Apps for GNOME, a website to "feature the best applications in the GNOME ecosystem," according to creator Sophie Herold.

    The scope of the GNOME project is extensive and includes low-level system components, a toolkit for developers of GUI applications (GTK), a desktop shell and window manager, and numerous applications built with these technologies.

    GNOME apps fall into three categories. The first, called Core, are apps which are generally pre-installed with GNOME desktop, including Files, Terminal, Photos, GNOME Web, Calendar, Contacts, and an installation manager called Software.

    The second, GNOME Circle, is for applications from any developer that have gone through an approval process. Circle apps have to be built using GTK, able to be installed as a Flatpak (a system for packaging applications that simplifies distribution and clean install and removal), and follow GNOME user interface conventions. Third, there are development tools such as the Builder IDE.

  • The new 'Apps for GNOME' website aims to help you discover more and get involved | GamingOnLinux

    GNOME continue building up their ecosystem and their marketing game too with the launch of a new "Apps for GNOME" website to help people get involved and discover more.

    Worth reminding people that GNOME is much more than just a desktop environment. The GNOME project covers a lot from toolkits for building applications, the desktop environment, window manager, low-level system stuff and much more. There's also the GNOME Foundation, which has an aim to get GNOME stuff out there into the world and support the whole thing.

    Apps for GNOME is designed to show off their "Core Apps", which are those usually pre-installed with Linux distributions using GNOME and are created directly by the GNOME team. There's also the "Circle Apps" which is basically a showcase of applications built with GNOME tech and then there's the "Development Apps" for people who want to get involved directly by making their own applications.

Apps For GNOME Launched

    • Apps For GNOME Launched

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
