App discovery and launcher


Just wondering if there’s any plan for an official ‘app launcher’ for atom shell. I’m thinking something similar to Chrome’s app screen chrome://apps which show the user any Atom apps they currently have installed and offer ways for users to download other ‘popular’ apps (which would require a central host repository). I was thinking something like this could replace the current default app that comes with atom-shell.

I guess the problem I’m trying to solve is that of distributing app ‘bundles’ rather than distributing the entire runtime with every app.
