CoreApps v2.8 Released with a lots of New features and less depends


After a 4 months of development we are happy to present more lighter CoreApps v2.8.
So much work done to make the libs lighter, lots of code clean up and New features



From now on we rename CoreApps to C Suite.

There are some core features that makes them great. Some are listed here.

  • All the apps are light with lesser dependencies and uses less ram.
  • All the apps can run in low resource device like Raspberry pi and device with out hardware acceleration like postmarketos devices.
  • Bookmark support across the all apps makes your important files in one place(CorePins).
  • All the apps are touch-friendly and suitable Phablet and Tablet and we are working towards that.
  • Apps use the precious vertical screen real estate properly. Shows what you need, use the screen on the items what’s matter to user.
  • We introduced a feature called "Session" in CoreStuff app. You can select some apps and with file & give a name to make a session. Then double click the session , it will open the apps with the selected file.
  • All the search you done will be saved. Also you just double click that Search activity it will show the result from that folder which you searched couple of days ago in CoreHunt.
  • Activities in CoreStuff will show all the app you opened with the file. Just double click that, it will restore the app with that file you working with couple of days ago. Don't worry you can clear the both SEARCH & RECENT ACTIVITIES.

So here we present the new features and changes we did for v2.8.

Please join this room in IRC to give your feedback to CoreApps developers

Guys if anyone wants to install the CoreApps in Chrome books flow this tutorial in this video.

and the appimages

So why the rename from CoreApps to C Suite? C Suite sounds more like a C Programmers IDE then a Application Suite.

Anyway this is the first time I've heard of CoreApps. I'll check it out.

Because it is short form. C means CoreApps.
Be sure to give us feedback. Helps us a lot.

As an user giving feedback is at lest we can do as a FOSS user.
Just using the app for the first time and got fustrated about some bugs or feature and uninstalling them will not help any one.
Let the developer know the bugs or feature not working or what makes you not to use the apps. This will help the development.


Needs a Meta Package to install the whole thing.

in AUR?

Well it has to moved over to to the Repos proper from AUR, but yes.

I asked the manajro maintainer a copule of times like @jonathon but no response there.

but i ported them in ALPINE( i know, no one cares) and @Strit in Manjaro ARM.

But in AUR @Strit can make a meta package AS he helped to port in AUR.

Need to be popular i guess like gnome or kde. :wink:

I have created a package group for it, which works when the packages are in the repo.

Obviously package groups won't work with AUR packages, but I don't think meta packages are allowed in the AUR.

A person responding to themselves, even in a post is not a good sign at all. :rofl:

Just Kidding.

Happy 2 years of CoreApps. We started with CoreBox at 15 Feb in 2018. Now we are growing Thanks to you guys. :hugs: :hugs:
