appstream-index - Manage the AppStream application index
This manual page documents briefly the appstream-index command. appstream-index manages the AppStream index. The AppStream application index contains a list of all available applications for your distribution, matched with their native package names. It is generated using either AppStream-XML, Debian-DEP-11 or Ubuntu AppInstall data, which is provided by your distributor. The database is managed using a small DBus-activated daemon. This tool connects to the daemon and allows sending simple commands. For more information about the AppStream project and the other components which are part of it, take a look at the AppStream pages at Freedesktop.org.
--version Display version number of appstream-index -s, --search TERM Search the AppStream application database for a given search term.
