The LBRY app is a graphical browser for the decentralized content marketplace provided by the LBRY protocol. It is essentially the lbry daemon bundled with a UI using Electron.



We provide installers for Windows, macOS (v10.12.4, Sierra, or greater), and Debian-based Linux. See community maintained builds section for alternative Linux installations.

Latest Pre-release Download Download Download

Our releases page also contains the latest release, pre-releases, and past builds.
Note: If the deb fails to install using the Ubuntu Software Center, install manually via sudo dpkg -i <path to deb>. You'll need to run sudo apt-get install -f if this is the first time installing it to install dependencies

To install from source or make changes to the application, continue to the next section below.

Community maintained builds for Arch Linux and Flatpak are available, see below. These installs will need to be updated manually as the in-app update process only supports Debian installs at this time. Note: If coming from a deb install, the directory structure is different and you'll need to migrate data.

Double click the installed application to interact with the LBRY network.

Running from Source



  1. Clone (or fork) this repository: git clone
  2. Change directories into the downloaded folder: cd lbry-desktop
  3. Install the dependencies: yarn
  4. Compile the app and run it: yarn dev

If you want to just build the app you can run yarn build. This will give you an executable inside the /dist folder. We use electron-builder to create distributable packages.

Resetting your Packages

If the app isn't building, or yarn xxx commands aren't working you may need to just reset your node_modules. To do so you can run: rm -r node_modules && yarn or del /s /q node_modules && yarn on Windows.

If you really think something might have gone wrong, you can force your repo to clear everything that doesn't match the repo with git reset --hard HEAD && git clean -fxd && git pull -r
