flatpak-remote-info - Show information about an application or runtime in a remote


flatpak remote-info [OPTION...] REMOTE REF


Shows information about the runtime or application REF from the remote repository with the name REMOTE. You can find all configured remote repositories with flatpak remotes.

By default, the output is formatted in a friendly format. If you specify one of the --show-... options, the output is instead formatted in a machine-readable format.

Unless overridden with the --system, --user, or --installation options, this command uses either the default system-wide installation or the per-user one, depending on which has the specified REMOTE.


The following options are understood:

-h, --help

Show help options and exit.


Use the per-user configuration.


Use the default system-wide configuration.


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


Prefer to use locally cached information if possible, even though it may be out of date. This is faster, but risks returning stale information. Also, some information is not cached so will not be available.


Assume that REF is a runtime if not explicitly specified.


Assume that REF is an app if not explicitly specified.


The default architecture to look for, if not given explicitly in the REF. See flatpak --supported-arches for architectures supported by the host.


Show information about the specific commit, rather than the latest version.


Display a log of previous versions.

-r, --show-ref

Show the matched ref.

-c, --show-commit

Show the commit id.

-p, --show-parent

Show the parent commit id.

-m, --show-metadata

Show the metadata.

-v, --verbose

Print debug information during command processing.


Print OSTree debug information during command processing.
