flatpak-flatpakref — Reference to a remote for an application or runtime

Description

Flatpak uses flatpakref files to share information about a remote for a single application. The flatpakref file contains enough information to add the remote and install the application. Use the flatpak install --from command to do so.

The filename extension commonly used for flatpakref files is .flatpakref.

A flatpakref file can also refer to a remote for a runtime.

File Format

The flatpakref file is using the same .ini file format that is used for systemd unit files or application .desktop files.

[Flatpak Ref]

All the information is contained in the [Flatpak Ref] group.

The following keys can be present in this group:

Name (string)

The fully qualified name of the runtime that is used by the application. This key is mandatory.

Url (string)

The url for the remote. This key is mandatory.

Branch (string)

The name of the branch from which to install the application or runtime. If this key is not specified, the "master" branch is used.

Title (string)

The title of the application or runtime. This should be a user-friendly name that can be displayed e.g. in an app store.
