Generator for AppStream metadata catalogs


AppStream is a cross-distribution effort for creating and sharing metadata of software components available in the package repositories of a distribution. It provides specifications for an unified software component metadata format as well as tools to read, write and validate the metadata.

This package contains a tool to generate catalog metadata from package repositories. It will extract icons, download screenshots, validate and transform the metadata and return XML or YAML files that can be read by AppStream clients, such as software centers. The `appstream-generator` tool will also generate issue reports as JSON documents and HTML pages.
