Tool to build flatpaks from source

Flatpak icon

Flatpak-builder is a tool for building flatpaks from sources.

See for more information.

Read documentation for the flatpak-builder commandline tools.


Flatpak-builder uses a traditional autoconf-style build mechanism. To build just do

 ./configure [args]
 make install

Most configure arguments are documented in ./configure --help. However, there are some options that are a bit more complicated.

Flatpak-builder relies on flatpak, so it must be installed first.
