For some versions now Peppermint OS offers a nice little utility to create and manage « web-apps ».
As Peppermint OS is Ubuntu based, it’s easy to install it on any *buntu all you need is the .deb from their launchpad page ( https://launchpad.net/~peppermintos/+archive/ubuntu/p10-release/+files/ice_6.0.3_all.deb ). It’s a python script, no heavy thing.
Sources are on https://github.com/peppermintos/ice
This is what it looks like ( on Unity 16.04 ) :
Notice that :
- it works with some internet-browsers ( not only chrome/chromium )
- each web-app may have its own isolated profile ( default behavior with Firefox ) so each has its own passwords, extensions, history, a.s.o. stored in ~/.local/share/ice/
Maybe that could be a convenient little tool to provide in UbuntuBudgie ( or upstream Solus ) ?
