flatpak-remote-add - Add a remote repository
flatpak remote-add [OPTION...] NAME LOCATION
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.
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. It is also used when searching for a remote to provide an app's runtime. The app's origin is checked before other remotes with the same priority. --subset=SUBSET Limit the refs available from the remote to those that are part of the named subset. --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 allowlisting and blocklisting. Here is an example filter file: # This is an allowlist 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. --authenticator-name=NAME Specify the authenticator to use for the remote. --authenticator-option=KEY=VALUE Specify an authenticator option for the remote. --authenticator-install Enable auto-installation of authenticator. --no-authenticator-install Disable auto-installation of authenticator. --no-follow-redirect Do not follow xa.redirect-url defined in the summary file. -v, --verbose Print debug information during command processing. --ostree-verbose Print OSTree debug information during command processing.
