Fedy relies on GTK+3 and GJS for it's UI layer.

The included plugins rely on the following packages,

  • dnf
  • dnf-plugins-core
  • wget
  • rpmfusion-free-release
  • rpmfusion-nonfree-release
  • folkswithhats-release


Fedy can be installed with our script which automatically sets up the repos and dependencies.


After installation, search for Fedy in the menu/overview or type fedy in the terminal.

Plugin structure

Plugins can be placed under ~/.local/share/fedy/plugins/, or the system plugins directory.

Each plugin is a directory with the suffix .plugin, which consist of a JSON formatted metadata file. The metadata file contains information about the plugin and describes how Fedy should run the tasks.

The plugins can run any command or scripts (bash, python etc.). In addtion to the system commands, Fedy provides an additional command, run-as-root to allow running commands (e.g.- run-as-root touch /some/file/somewhere) or scripts (e.g.- run-as-root -s do-stuff.sh) as root.

Have a look at the existing plugins to know more about how to write plugins for Fedy.
