Fiddling around with "Web" (Gnome Epiphany), has a lot of benefits it seems, I will test it more over the coming weeks. But one very interesting thing was https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNOME_Web#Web_Applications_mode which is probably on-target with Purism's tech roadmap to isolate html5 apps within our app store.
Zlatan, take a look and see if this approach gets us what we want, and I'd like to then test a handful of apps.
My vision (to be discussed and edited appropriately) is to:
- find a webpage-to-isolated-app solution ("Web Application Mode" may solve this)
- create some web-app-<name> packages that contain, an icon, a url, and a name, (and other things that help Gnome Software offer it as an app)
- create a spider to pull in any web-app that qualifies (such as finding home-pages that use the <link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="/custom_icon.png"/> tag
- confirm those web-apps to be added to Gnome Software within PureOS
- allow users to install them and appear as an icon within PureOS
- upon launching "Web" opens up to the url (fullscreen?/maximized?)
