Converting a Lazarus App to an appimage
« on: August 12, 2020, 04:15:29 am »
Hi

How can I turn my Lazarus Application into an AppImages.

Also if you have advice or an opinion of Lazarus and AppImages I would enjoy your feedback.

Thank You...

Isn't it better to compile it native. Or don't you have mac and still want to use it?
Lazarus 2.06 (64b) / FPC 3.0.4 / Windows 10
stucked on Delphi 10.3.1

Appimage has a pretty extended documentation: https://docs.appimage.org/

Relevant foe you: https://docs.appimage.org/packaging-guide/manual.html#ref-manual

So whats your exact problem?

Isn't it better to compile it native. Or don't you have mac and still want to use it?
AppImage is native and has nothing to do with mac, It is a way to pack an application for linux containing all dependencies.

This way you don't need root to install dependencies to use an application

This is why separate AppImage files have to be provided for Intel and ARM architecture.
function GetRandomNumber: integer; // xkcd.com
begin
  GetRandomNumber := 4; // chosen by fair dice roll. Guaranteed to be random.
end;

"bitness" seems to be the accepted term.

I just though AppImages was a good way to distribute a Lazarus app.

How to I set the compile options so my Lazarus app will run on a another LinuxMX computer?

Thank You.

Hi!

Call it old fashioned "byte sex".

Now we got at long last some sex in the forum.
