Containerized Application technologies like AppImage gives a new conceptual changes for Linux applications, with free from the worries of shared libraries and dependency issues. And with the ability for upstream projects to have a much closer role in delivering their software, and the benefits that brings to both the upstream projects and their users. Then, Open Build Service (OBS) came to play, to support for AppImages. AppImages now can be built successfully on the public openSUSE Build Service.

Generating an AppImage should be straightforward using OBS, not also the resulted image will be "automatic, consistent and reproducible way", but also automatically embeds update information into AppImages to enable binary delta updates using AppImageUpdate, so user will only get the updated portion of the download package, reducing the amount of download size while updating the package.

The talk will discuss and demonstrate how to make use of OBS to produce AppImage, a downloadable file for Linux that contains an application and everything the application needs to run (e.g., libraries, icons, fonts, translations, etc.) that cannot be reasonably expected to be part of each target system.
