       flatpak-flatpakref - Reference to a remote for an application or runtime


       Flatpak uses flatpakref files to share information about a remote for a single
       application. The flatpakref file contains enough information to add the remote and install
       the application. Use the flatpak install --from command to do so.

       flatpakref files may also contain additional information that is useful when displaying
       the application to the user, e.g. in an app store.

       The filename extension commonly used for flatpakref files is .flatpakref.

       A flatpakref file can also refer to a remote for a runtime.


       The flatpakref file is using the same .ini file format that is used for systemd unit files
       or application .desktop files.

   [Flatpak Ref]
       All the information is contained in the [Flatpak Ref] group.

       The following keys can be present in this group:

       Version (uint64)
           The version of the file format, must be 1 if present.

       Name (string)
           The fully qualified name of the runtime or application. This key is mandatory.

       Url (string)
           The url for the remote. This key is mandatory.

       Branch (string)
           The name of the branch from which to install the application or runtime. If this key
           is not specified, the "master" branch is used.

       Title (string)
           The title of the application or runtime. This should be a user-friendly name that can
           be displayed e.g. in an app store.

       Comment (string)
           A short summary of the application or runtime, for display e.g. in an app store.

       Description (string)
           A longer description of the application or runtime, for display e.g. in an app store.

       Icon (string)
           The url for an icon that can be used to represent the application or runtime.

       Homepage (string)
           The url of a webpage describing the application or runtime.

       DeploySideloadCollectionID (string)
           The collection ID of the remote, if it has one. This uniquely identifies the
           collection of apps in the remote, to allow peer to peer redistribution (see
           flatpak(1)). It is recommended to use this key over DeployCollectionID or CollectionID
           because only newer clients (Flatpak 1.12.8 or later) pay attention to it (and older
           clients don't handle collection IDs properly).

       DeployCollectionID (string)
           This is deprecated but still supported for backwards compatibility. Use
           DeploySideloadCollectionID instead.

       CollectionID (string)
           This is deprecated but still supported for backwards compatibility. Use
           DeploySideloadCollectionID instead.

       IsRuntime (boolean)
           Whether this file refers to a runtime. If this key is not specified, the file is
           assumed to refer to an application.

       GPGKey (string)
           The base64-encoded gpg key for the remote.

       RuntimeRepo (string)
           The url for a .flatpakrepo file for the remote where the runtime can be found. Note
           that if the runtime is available in the remote providing the app, that remote may be
           used instead but the one specified by this option will still be added.

       SuggestRemoteName (string)
           A suggested name for the remote.
