  1. Ronak Kogta Sambuddha Basu AppIT git for Desktop Application Environment

  2. Our goal is simple, we want to use ideas of

    docker to make desktop experience better. A Time machine for your application.  Search trusted applications from appit repositories  Tight dropbox integrations to retain app customizations, even if you are on different hosts  Usability: Click on app icons like you used to, but now they will run on docker. Our Hack
  3.  Your customized software need no another re- customizaiton. 

    IDE Synchronization (Netbeans,Eclipse) along with your workdir  Lot of pluggable batteries to the host  No need to permanently install applications.  An idea of minimalistic yet high functioning host.  Gives certain security, isolation, portable guarantees.  Make it easy for user, layman, and researchers Our Hack Inspiration
  4.  Can Contain any sort of application (be it single

    container or multiple container)  All your customizations and data should be with you, while you launch an application. (Persistent State)  Define what each container is capable of  Resource Usage  Security Profiles  Capabilities Application Containment
  5.  Freedom to create your own customizations and push it

    into docker hub.  Download only signed & trusted applications to your machine.  Application meta-data synchronization with cloud storage services like Dropbox Application Distribution
  6.  Can easily define interfaces to interact  Network ports

     ssh tunneling  vnc  sharing Xwindow Socket  Design  pull,push,search for your application (powerful cli)  creating launchers which makes using applications intuitive  gui wrappers to make it look like a package manager *(not implemented) Usability
