Adding extra App

I'm writing because I would like to add an extra App to my OBOS Box.
Indeed, it seems perfect to run a multimedia server. emby-server for instance.

What is the best way for me to install it?
Create a new Site on UBOS and install it vie pacman -U ?
Can I do it on the same Site currently running Nextcloud?
Is it necessary the you on UBOS team add it to your official repository?

Thanks a lot for your valuable help!

The best way of doing this would be to package the new app in the same way all other apps are packaged on UBOS. Assuming it works well, we could add it as one of the apps distributed with UBOS.

This process is described here: At the heart of it it is rather straightforward, but it might take some time on the first try.

There is no need that it be distributed through the official UBOS repositories. You can install it on your UBOS device with "pacman -U" and then deploy to the same, or a different virtual host with "ubos-admin deploy".
