GNOME continue building up their ecosystem and their marketing game too with the launch of a new "Apps for GNOME" website to help people get involved and discover more.
Worth reminding people that GNOME is much more than just a desktop environment. The GNOME project covers a lot from toolkits for building applications, the desktop environment, window manager, low-level system stuff and much more. There's also the GNOME Foundation, which has an aim to get GNOME stuff out there into the world and support the whole thing.
Apps for GNOME is designed to show off their "Core Apps", which are those usually pre-installed with Linux distributions using GNOME and are created directly by the GNOME team. There's also the "Circle Apps" which is basically a showcase of applications built with GNOME tech and then there's the "Development Apps" for people who want to get involved directly by making their own applications.
Apps featured in this curated overview are all built with the GNOME philosophy in mind. They are easy to understand and simple to use, feature a consistent and polished design and provide a noticeable attention to details. Naturally, they are free software and have committed to being part of a welcoming and friendly community. These apps will perfectly integrate with your GNOME Desktop. — apps.gnome.org
Writing in the announcement blog post developer Sophie Herold goes over the main points of the website which include a focus on getting people involved, internationalization to lower barriers, up to date information for each application provided by metadata (the same data used by GNOME Software and Flathub) and to also feature applications you won't find on the likes of Flathub (like Files). They're hoping to continue extending the website to cover more in future.
