Is there going to be a linux version of the Atlassian Companion app?


We have users accessing Confluence via windows and linux ([K]ubuntu) clients. Both would benefit from using the Atlassian Companion app. As far as I can see, there are only windows and mac versions. Are there any plans for a linux version?

That would make our work a lot easier. Thanks.

Best Regads,

I hate that Linux is always treated like a 3rd world citizen, even that by fact 99% of Atlassian software runs on it and all my pro developers in my corp uses Linux as their main OS.

Need a Linux client here too. I don't think it used to require this companion app.

Now we're kind of hosed for all linux developers.

Hi @Katrin Kühn,

I wrote this Python script which provides the Companion functionality under Linux.

Maybe you would like to test it. I appreciate feedback and contributions.

YES!! Thanks very much. This saved my day. It works on Linux Mint 19.3, with Confluence Server  v. 7.3.1.

it is insane that atlassian has not made this avail yet.

There is a significant portion of the user base that is being ignored because the Atlassian Companion app has not been developed and released for GNU/Linux. As a UNIX and Linux System Administrator who needs this functionality to effectively support and maintain my systems, I am deeply disappointed by this continuing failure.
