I mainly work with WordPress desktop to create post on my websites. WordPress Desktop is a special application released by WordPress.org team. In order to use this, you must have Jetpack plugin installed on your WordPress site. On this tutorial, I am going to show you how to install WordPress Desktop on OpenSUSE Leap 42.3.
Steps to Install WordPress Desktop on OpenSUSE Leap 42.3

Enjoy WordPress Desktop on OpenSUSE Leap.
