A new version of the AM application manager for AppImage is now available. This release includes several improvements to AppImage sandboxing. Aisap, Bubblewrap's frontend, is used to create and administer sandboxes. AppImages now have a more consistent appearance with the system, include configuration files for system themes and user defaults, and have more control over the sandbox.



"AM" 6.12.1

AppImage sandboxing improvement!

You decide which directories to whitelist, in your language!

This release is the continuation of version  6.12, with varius improvements to the option "--sandbox".

As already mentioned in the previous version, " Aisap" is a frontend for Bubblewrap which is aimed at sandboxing AppImages. Visit  github.com/mgord9518/aisap for more information.

"AM"/"AppMan" implements "Aisap" to create and manage sandboxes... and this release is a huge step forward in this regard!

Now AppImages can not only run in the sandbox, but they now have a more consistent appearance with the system, and the sandbox is no longer a limitation:

  • integration of configuration files for system themes and user's defaults;
  • greater mastery of the sandbox;
  • interaction with the command line interface to authorize access to the XDG directories that you choose.

Brief syntax summary

To enable the sandbox:

am --sandbox $APP

or

appman --sandbox $APP

To disable the sandbox:

$APP --disable-sandbox
