FLATPAK BUILD-UPDAT(1)  flatpak build-update-repo FLATPAK BUILD-UPDAT(1)

NAME         top

       flatpak-build-update-repo - Create a repository from a build

SYNOPSIS         top

       flatpak build-update-repo [OPTION...] LOCATION

DESCRIPTION         top

       Updates repository metadata for the repository at LOCATION. This
       command generates an OSTree summary file that lists the contents
       of the repository. The summary is used by flatpak remote-ls and
       other commands to display the contents of remote repositories.

       After this command, LOCATION can be used as the repository
       location for flatpak remote-add, either by exporting it over
       http, or directly with a file: url.

OPTIONS         top

       The following options are understood:

       -h, --help
           Show help options and exit.

           Redirect this repo to a new URL.

           A title for the repository, e.g. for display in a UI. The
           title is stored in the repository summary.

           A single-line comment for the remote, e.g. for display in a
           UI. The comment is stored in the repository summary.

           A full-paragraph description for the remote, e.g. for display
           in a UI. The description is stored in the repository summary.

           URL for a website for the remote, e.g. for display in a UI.
           The url is stored in the repository summary.

           URL for an icon for the remote, e.g. for display in a UI. The
           url is stored in the repository summary.

           A default branch for the repository, mainly for use in a UI.

           Import a new default GPG public key from the given file.

           The globally unique identifier of the remote repository, to
           allow mirrors to be grouped. This must be set to a globally
           unique reverse DNS string if the repository is to be made
           publicly available. If a collection ID is already set on an
           existing repository, this will update it. If not specified,
           the existing collection ID will be left unchanged.

           Deploy the collection ID (set using --collection-id) in the
           static remote configuration for all clients. This is
           irrevocable once published in a repository. Use it to decide
           when to roll out a collection ID to users of an existing
           repository. If constructing a new repository which has a
           collection ID, you should typically always pass this option.

           This is similar to --deploy-collection-id, but it only
           applies the deploy to clients newer than flatpak 1.7 which
           supports the new form of sideloads.

           Sign the commit with this GPG key. This option can be used
           multiple times.

           GPG Homedir to use when looking for keyrings

           Generate static deltas for all references. This generates
           from-empty and delta static files that allow for faster

           Limit the number of parallel jobs creating static deltas. The
           default is the number of cpus.

           Don't generate deltas for runtime or application id matching
           this pattern. For instance,
           --static-delta-ignore-ref=*.Sources means there will not be
           any deltas for source refs.

           Remove unreferenced objects in repo.

           Only keep at most this number of old versions for any
           particular ref. Default is -1 which means infinite.

       -v, --verbose
           Print debug information during command processing.

           Print OSTree debug information during command processing.
