Is running an appimage supported in Silverblue?

Is it safe to run an appimage in silverblue? Will it cause any harm to system?

Supported?

Yes.

Safe?

That depends on the appimage - only download and run appimages that you trust. Best would be to verify the downloaded file with a GPG signature.

cause harm to system

Depends on the appimage. Only download and run appimages that you can trust. Never run an appimage as with sudo privileges.
