The Cloudron User Repository - CUR
CUR is deviated from AUR - Arch User Repository
AUR is awesome and makes it very easy for Arch Linux Users to install software from other users.
In similar fashion I would love such a feature in Cloudron.
From my 3 packaged apps only Greenlight made it into the app-store. Yet!
Why did Valheim and FiveM did not make it?
Simply put, the lack of users testing the app and reporting back.
Does Cloudron need an CUR?
Arch Linux is loved for the AUR and I am sure that CUR would also have this effect for Cloudron.
I believe many users do not test apps since they are used to the app-store and even the thought of touching the shell to install a community app with the cloudron-cli is very spooky to the targeted end-user of cloudron.
Especially on productive systems doing such thing is a no-go, since you want stable prod which does not fail you.
Now imagine a CUR.
With a simple click in the setting you can enable the CUR and can install a community app to test and give feedback.
This would decrease the barrier for end-users and @appdev(s).
This could also decrease work for maintaining apps if they stay community apps and are not suited for the general Cloudron app-store.
CUR should be excluded from Cloudron Support for obvious reasons.
I would love to get some thoughts on this.
(ps: I am aware of many side effects of AUR/CUR and stale unmaintained packages, but AUR still rocks )
