There is a Linux “installer” - Calamares. Actually, it’s not an installer, but something more like “installer framework” created by people from Manjaro, KaOS, BBQLinux, Fedora, Kubuntu, Maui and Netrunner. It’s pretty like Cnchi (with more pros for Cnchi imo). It use Qt5, Python3 and C++. It will be in use with upcoming Manjaro 0.9, KaOS and Maui.
I love Cnchi for it’s functionality and all that various options for end-user, but I also love the way Calamares project was raised. It isn’t another fork of fork. It isn’t “another approach”. It is work of bunch of people from many various distros to create one, universal and good solution. I’ve seen something like this only once before (“merge” of LXQT and RazorQT desktop environments), and I believe it’s the most promising way of creating non-corporation based FOSS. Do You know any others projects with history like this?
I’m wondering, Manjaro and Netrunner are somehow based on Arch, so creating distro or image based on Arch and using Calamares shouldn’t be difficult. Is this is possible to add/use Cnchi in similar way, I mean as installer for any distribution?
There is few things that is missing, like for example choice of DE step, encryption, or random password generating at this moment, but I believe they will be added soon. Calamares might be really nice opponent for our beloved Cnchi :)
