Experiment in short Flatpak URLs by Cassidy James. As a proof-of-concept, I’ve taken a couple dozen of the most popular apps on Flathub (plus a few of my own for testing) and given them nice, predictable short URLs in the format of flatpak.app/name. This mapping is openly available.
If a result is not matched:
There are a number of open questions:
What do we do if there are naming conflicts? E.g. if an app is on both AppCenter and Flathub.
Is this a terrible, unmaintainable idea?
How do we maintain this? Community-led best-effort?
Does this have any value?
