Desktop Application - Macos/Linux

Q1. What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
Currently only the windows desktop application is under active development. See. Windows Application developer edition v0.1 πŸš€

Q2 - Who is impacted?
While windows corresponds to 70% of the passbolt user base according to the extension webstore, there is still around 20% (Mac) and 10% (Linux), that will not have possibility to access the desktop app.

Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
Serving all users, especially the ones running on FOSS operating system would be a good thing, for adoption purpose.

Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)
Either port the windows application or develop new version(s) for Macos and Linux.

I’m all for this !

To solve the Cross-Compatibility issues I suggest using a framework like Tauri ( which is akin to ElectronJS. Since the Passbolt interface is already web-based that would make it the logic step.

I’d really love to see this coming.
