Pantavisor App Engine init mode lets you run Pantavisor as a daemon in your already set up Linux distro. This is a less intrusive way to try Pantavisor without having to flash your device storage. Pantavisor App Engine will not get you to the minimal system we strive for. However, it will be a perfect tool for quick and non-disruptive prototyping of our container engine in your devices.

The installation script of App Engine needs patchelf, xz and cpio. To install them in a Debian-based distro:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install patchelf cpio xz-utils
