Unofficial repositories / flatpack

Postby faziopesce » 2018-06-11 06:20

Hi, I'm on debian stable stretch, I'd know if there are unofficial/official 3rdy part repository for 4 applications that I often use:
-Android studio
-Jdownloader
-Exodus cryptocurrency wallet
-FileBot file renamer
I'd install one or more trusted repository to install and then update these softwares. How Can I maintein these softwares updates without manually download them from respective official website and without maually install them? Is there a service that you suggest me like flatpak/snap (Does Debian support snap packages?) ?

Thank you!

Debian supports both Flatpak and Snap.

Android Studio, Jdownloader and Filebot are available by those means.

For Exodus Wallet you will probably have to go to the website >>> https://support.exodus.io/article/36-ho ... all-exodus

Flatpak is said to be faster...

Flatpak is faster, more secure and it integrates better in most distros than snaps.

Jdownloader and Filebot probably have programs with equivalent function already in the Debian repositories.

Save your breath. Reason will not win out with the crowd that thrives on novelty and SNS.
