FLATPAK REMOTE-ADD(1) flatpak remote-add FLATPAK REMOTE-ADD(1)

NAME

flatpak-remote-add - Add a remote repository

SYNOPSIS

flatpak remote-add [OPTION...] NAME LOCATION

DESCRIPTION

Adds a remote repository to the flatpak repository configuration. NAME is the name for the new remote, and LOCATION is a url or pathname. The LOCATION is either a flatpak repository, or a .flatpakrepo file which describes a repository. In the former case you may also have to specify extra options, such as the gpg key for the repo.

Unless overridden with the --user or --installation options, this command changes the default system-wide installation.

OPTIONS

The following options are understood:

-h, --help

Show help options and exit.

--from

Assume the URI is a .flatpakrepo file rather than the repository itself. This is enabled by default if the extension is .flatpakrepo, so generally you don't need this option.

--user

Modify the per-user configuration.

--system

Modify the default system-wide configuration.

--installation=NAME

Modify a system-wide installation specified by NAME among those defined in /etc/flatpak/installations.d/. Using --installation=default is equivalent to using --system.

--no-gpg-verify

Disable GPG verification for the added remote.

--prio=PRIO

Set the priority for the remote. Default is 1, higher is more prioritized. This is mainly used for graphical installation tools.

--no-enumerate

Mark the remote as not enumerated. This means the remote will not be used to list applications, for instance in graphical installation tools.

--no-use-for-deps

Mark the remote as not to be used for automatic runtime dependency resolution.

--if-not-exists

Do nothing if the provided remote already exists.

--disable

Disable the added remote.

--title=TITLE

A title for the remote, e.g. for display in a UI.

--comment=COMMENT

A single-line comment for the remote, e.g. for display in a UI.

--description=DESCRIPTION

A full-paragraph description for the remote, e.g. for display in a UI.

--homepage=URL

URL for a website for the remote, e.g. for display in a UI.

--icon=URL

URL for an icon for the remote, e.g. for display in a UI.

--default-branch=BRANCH

A default branch for the remote, mainly for use in a UI.

--filter=PATH

Add a local filter to the remote. A filter file is a list of lines, each file starting with "allow" or "deny", and then a glob for the ref to allow or disallow. The globs specify a partial ref (i.e. you can leave out trailing parts which will then match everything), but otherwise only "*" is special, matching anything in that part of the ref.

By default all refs are allowed, but if a ref matches a deny rule it is disallowed unless it specifically matches an allow rule. This means you can use this to implement both whitelisting and blacklisting.

Here is an example filter file:

# This is a whitelist style filter as it denies all first
deny *
allow runtime/org.freedesktop.*
allow org.some.app/arm
allow org.signal.Signal/*/stable
allow org.signal.Signal.*/*/stable

--gpg-import=FILE

Import gpg keys from the specified keyring file as trusted for the new remote. If the file is - the keyring is read from standard input.

-v, --verbose

Print debug information during command processing.

--ostree-verbose

Print OSTree debug information during command processing.

$ flatpak --user remote-add --no-gpg-verify test-repo https://people.gnome.org/~alexl/gnome-sdk/repo/
