An "App" element used to format application lists (e.g. List of applications and other such list).


* {{App|[[Firefox]]|The Firefox Web Browser is the faster, more secure, and fully customizable way to surf the web.|http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/|{{Pkg|firefox}}}}
  1. arg. – upstream name of the application, linking to an ArchWiki or Wikipedia article (the former is preferred).
  2. arg. – description that should not duplicate information available in List of applications classifications and/or article context.
  3. arg. – link to upstream website/project page/wiki/other key source of information about the application.
  4. arg. – link to package using Template:Pkg or Template:AUR.
Note: This template is meant to be used at the first level of bulleted lists. It places the first line as a list item, then ends the list and indents the second line. Since the indentation is fixed you should avoid using the template in lists deeper than one level.
