Messaging-app as click(able)



  • Hello there.

    I made a pull request, to be able to build messaging-app with clickable tool. This can be usefull for develpoing and testing purposes. And who knows, maybe sometimes all apps come as clickable (snap, ...) packages and can be uninstalled to make UT more flexible. 😉

    I'm writing this, to bring a little bit of attention to the PR, to do some testing, if it can be accepted. Feel free to ask any questions.



  • Does this mean you were able to create a click package for the messaging app and successfully installed it and working?

    yes



  • That's cool, not sure what's the effort and possible issues, maybe we can officially make the messaging app a click so that it'll be easier to release fixes in the store

    First issue, that comes to my mind are bindings from another apps (contacts, notifications, ...). I think (didn't do the research), they are now "hardwired" to legacy messaging-app.

    Then there is problem with apparmor confinement. I couldn't figure out how to use specific permissions, so right now the click package has full rights to system. On open-store there would be a warning, wich is not wanted for officially supported app. But I don' know, maybe this can be (or already is) solved with some signing and trusting.



  • There isn't a problem with the apparmor confinement. The things which messaging-app needs to access requires it to have the unconfined profile if it's to be a click.
