Fetch Structure

The structure of a fetch describes the modules that should be included in the output. It consists of a string of modules, separated by a colon (:). To list all available modules, use --list-modules

Config Files

Fastfetch uses JSONC based format for configuration. Fastfetch doesn't generate config file automatically; it should be generated manually by --gen-config. The config file will be saved in ~/.config/fastfetch/config.jsonc by default.

A JSONC config file is a JSON file that also supports comments with (// and /* */). Those files must have the extension '.jsonc'.

The specified configuration/preset files are searched in the following order:

1. relative to the current working directory

2. relative to ~/.local/share/fastfetch/presets/

3. relative to /usr/share/fastfetch/presets/

Fastfetch provides some default presets. List them with --list-presets.
