App Store (Software center) for electron apps


#1

As number of apps based on electron framework are increasing, I think there is need for app centre. I am not sure if there any app store already developed. But keeping the track of software and their updates will be easy though software centre for electron apps. Let me know your views. Thanks

Are third party “App Stores” supported on all target platforms? I don’t think Windows would be much of a challenge as there isn’t an App Store for Desktop apps and theoretically any executable with admin privileges could install an Electron app into %LOCALAPPDATA%, however is it possible for a 3rd party application to install additional apps on OSX? Linux seems possible - but again not something I have a great deal of knowledge of.

There is information here on submitting Electron apps to the Mac App Store:
