I've also been thinking of authy-desktop like how there is slack-desktop

I'd say we should go straight for authy-bin just so it's clear we're dealing with a closed-source bin.

I just added an optional dependency for libappindicator-gtk3 as pointed out by yochananmarqos. I didn't notice any tray icon myself but let me know if it works for you.

Is there anyway to get this into the system tray? Guessing probably not, but hoping maybe there is a setting I a missing.

All closed source electron based apps I have installed currently use the bundled binary.

Oh right. For now it would be best to not change the name as there's a pending request for authy.

Using the up to date system Electron is better than using a (usually) older bundled version. It also reduces the installation size immensely. See Electron package guidelines.

authy exists already, but it's based on the windows version instead. Also, what's the point in using a system electron dependency when a binary is provided?

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-03-16 22:28

That's a good point. I'd say call it authy for now. Then if it ever does become open source, it can then build from source and a separate authy-bin package can be created.

I've updated my PKGBUILD to reflect the name change.

I can create the new authy package and submit the request to merge this one into it if you'd like.

The other alternative, authy is also a binary and there are no sources available so I thought I'd name it after the source. If that's not okay I can rename.

The license also comes from that package, I wasn't able to find one myself.

This is not a snap, it's unpacked binary files. It should be called authy-bin. Packages named package-name-appimage are usually AppImages installed directly to the system, for example.

Where did you find the license as ISC? On, it says, "unset".

Here's my improved PKGBUILD using the system Electron version: authy-bin.
