What is Souk?
Souk is a flatpak-based app store, written with GTK4 and Rust. It's written from the ground up to be an app store that works both on desktop and on mobile devices like the PinePhone, PineTab, and Librem 5.
- What is the goal/scope of Souk?
Souk just wants to do one thing well - provide a Flatpak-focused app store. Not more - not less. To achieve this we're using Rust and GTK4. We intend to support desktop and mobile devices, and use libhandy to build our adaptive interface.
- Is Souk going to replace GNOME Software?
No. GNOME Software does a lot more things like doing firmware upgrades, managing packagekit packages, or doing complete OS upgrades. We don't want to add such functionality in Souk.
- Is Souk an official GNOME app?
No. Souk is an independent third-party application.
