Bundle System - Enjoy our Click'n'Run Apps!
The Chakra Software Bundling System is a fantastic way to enjoy your favourite apps in a pure environment, without actually installing any file into your system. This has a lot of benefits, listed elsewhere.
A Bundle is a squashed filesystem, an ISO-like image with all the files needed to run your app. Once you download your bundle and you click it, or you download it using CInstall will be launched, doing some first-run operations, like create the needed entries in Kickoff or create the appropriate mime types, move the bundle file to the local bundles repostory, create the dektop icon, and finally launch the bundle all in one click!
How it works? Chakra provides some diferent types of bundles but you don't need to deal with this, CInstall detects the bundle type and manages it usually creating a loop and mounting the bundle as a virtual filesystem, you never will experience delays launching a bundle as they run fast as any other normal app. Native bundles saves its configuration like any other app inside your home folder, and the chrooted ones, inside the bundle itself.
Chakra Linux provides a package called kde-gtk-config for integrate your bundles and/or Gtk apps installed from the CCR. Install it to enjoy your bundles with a well integrated look & feel in your Plasma Desktop.
