Hi Ibrahim and All,

no Micro is not provided by Slint (yet). I learned its existence today 

I have built flatpak and pipe-viewer and also its GUI gtk-pipe-viewer 
(not fully
accessible, but nice).

It took me more time than anticipated, but expect a big batch of updates for
Slint tomorrow (37 packages, including the many dependencies of file 

I did some reading and tests with flatpak, and wouldn't recommend to use 
especially if space on disk is a concern.
Worth reading about that:
However, "chose promise, chose due" as we say here, a flatpak package 
will be
available for Slint users tomorrow.
