appstream 0.15.6

Tools and libraries to work with AppStream metadata

AppStream is a cross-distribution effort for enhancing the way we interact with the software repositories provided by distributions by standardizing software component metadata. It provides the foundation to build software-center applications, by providing metadata necessary for an application-centric view on package repositories. It additionally provides specifications for things like an unified software metadata database, screenshot services and various other things needed to create user-friendly application-centers for distributions.


Install appstream 0.15.6 as follows:

guix install appstream@0.15.6

Or install the latest version:

guix install appstream

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
