interface AppMetadata {
name: string;
title?: string;
tooltip?: string;
description?: string;
icons?: Array<string>;
images?: Array<string>;

App metadata is provided by the FDC3 App Directory that the desktop agent connects to.

It always includes at least a name property, which can be used with open and raiseIntent.

Optionally, extra information from the app directory can be returned, to aid in rendering UI elements, e.g. a context menu. This includes a title, description, tooltip and icon and image URLs.
