Iā€™m very pleased to announce that clickable now is available via PPA as a .deb for installing on your Ubuntu-based desktop. Thanks to a wonderful community member JBB (JBBgameich on GitHub) who added the debian packaging recipes. You can now find the deb ready for installing via the new ppa: ppa:bhdouglass/clickable.

In addition to being available as a .deb, I have added initial, beta-level support for using docker. Docker is similar to lxd but seems to have better support outside of ubuntu. The Docker image was also simpler to build than the lxd images and could lead to a more sustainable upgrade path in the future. The docker support is not 100% matched with the lxd support but should soon catch up. To check it out, first make sure you have docker installed and running on your system. Then use the new --docker argument when running clickable.
