CLI only apps on Flathub?

CLI = (Command Line Interface) AKA an app without an GUI.

Hello, I would like to know why CLI only apps are not on Flathub. I find this disappointing as I frequently use powerful python based machine learning apps to manipulate images, and they are CLI only. Of course I would like a GUI but none exist and I can work around that by making bash scripts of frequently used options.

What is FlatHub’s policy on CLI only apps?

There are several, such as org.mosh.mosh. I think the website hides them though.

Another example is org.freedesktop.appstream-glib.

It is correct that flathub.org hides cli applications, see Support console applications #184
