What is the Appstore?
Say you want to install an application and make it accessible to the outside world. To do this, you most likely need to have some knowledge of the computer (such as the OS, hardware specs, network rules etc.) you will be installing it on, as well as some application specific knowledge.
Often, the installation process is error-prone and takes a lot of time. The Appstore attempts to automate this by providing a set of pre-configured application templates (in the Appstore world this is known as a package), making it possible to install an application instantly without much configuration.
Each application created through the Appstore provides a user accessible web interface, as well as the ability to limit access using services similar to Dataporten.
To install your first package, go to the Installing a package section.
