Download Links for your Website
When linking to your desktop app you can use our universal link. You can add this link to your website and it will work regardless of which operating system your user is running.
The universal link will:
  • Detect the operating system and deliver the correct installer:
    • Windows: NSIS if enabled, otherwise it will fall back to MSI, or AppX
    • Mac: DMG if enabled, otherwise it will fall back to ZIP.
    • Linux: AppImage if enabled, otherwise it will fall back to Debian, RPM, or Snap Store.
  • Always deliver the latest version of your desktop app. So if you publish a new version in the future then you don't need to update the link.
Your universal link looks like this:
You can get your universal link from the ToDesktop builder, just click on the cog in top-right.
Once you click the menu item then the Universal URL will be copied to your clipboard. The universal download link should look something like this:
If you want to use the URL for the Mac/Windows/Linux build then you can click the menu item for those URLs instead. Platform specific download links look like this:
  • Windows: https://dl.todesktop.com/{{YOUR_APP_ID}}/windows
  • Mac: https://dl.todesktop.com/{{YOUR_APP_ID}}/mac
  • Linux: https://dl.todesktop.com/{{YOUR_APP_ID}}/linux
So, if you want to get the latest Mac build of your desktop app then your download link should look something like this:
