App Outlet is a Universal application store inspired on the Linux App Store online service. It easily allows you to search and download [W.I.P] applications that runs on most Linux distributions. It currently works with AppImages, Flatpaks and Snaps.

Great thanks this is so useful.
No. It's not. At least, not if you're running a Puppy.
It's only for 64-bit systems. Puppies, without first installing major packages, can't use snap packages. 'Ubuntu' & 'Debian' based Puppies can install 'debs'. And all 64-bit Puppies can use 64-bit AppImages. But the AppImage wouldn't start; and decompressing the 'deb' and examining its contents revealed dependencies not built-into the package. Probably the reason the AppImage didn't work. Which means that some Puppy fan would have to repackage it, and include the dependencies; and various Puppies may require different versions of those dependencies. I'm not in the mood.
It would have made more sense if the AppStore could be accessed using a Web-browser. Why create an system supposed to make a user's life easier and not use the easiest way for him/her to make use of that system?
