The appdata format contains metadata about application. It can be available both in repositories (for available applications) and in the installed system (for installed applications). The appdata2solv tool reads the metadata from stdin and writes the parsed data as solv file to standard output. The parser will create application: pseudo packages for each entry.
- -d APPDATADIR
Do not read from standard input, instead scan the specified directory for appdata entries. APPDATADIR is normally set to /usr/share/appdata.
- -r ROOTDIR
Use ROOTDIR as root directory.
