[PB-28132] [PB-28133] 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.

Q5. Community support

I’m all for this !

To solve the Cross-Compatibility issues I suggest using a framework like Tauri (https://tauri.app/) 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.

Teams with Mac, Windows, and Linux users, all need one safe place for passwords.
This will helps cross platforms team, to choose passbolt.

Additionaly DesktopApp will bring some potential features (not just displaying passwords)
- Vault in the App
- Autofill in heavy applications.
- Biometry with platform natives features

Desktop App is a top forum request, showing many users search for this.
I am still looking on a solution for my team.

We need more user interfaces! UI
