Help shape the future of CurseForge!

Linux Support

The current banding only mentions Windows and Mac for the new client, but a not insignificant portion of modders use some form of linux as their daily driver OS.

    PC support will roll out first followed shortly by Mac.
    Linux support will be addressed later on.

    We realize there are Linux OS gamers and creators and want to offer them the CurseForge experience, however we require time.

    +1 for this. Linux dev here, happy to help beta test or work towards a deployment method, if code is open source (I couldn't find an OSS repo for Overwolf itself)

    A possibility to make porting this project easier is to target AppImage. This format works on almost all Linux distros and shouldn't take more than a small amount of effort to package. It also has the benefit of being easy to adapt to exotic systems like NixOS and being able to be put on the downloads page.: https://appimage.org/ and https://tinyurl.com/1jin1b5q may be of interest.

    Still not set. We will update this as soon as we do, this is clearly a popular requet.

    How about keep the standard "Download" in the website while sorting things out?
