Packaging Applications

Applications on the Librem 5 are supplied in two different package formats:

  1. Debian packages are provided as part of the PureOS operating system running on the phone. Core applications are provided in this format.

  2. Flatpaks are created using the Flatpak suite of tools.

Purism provides the PureOS Store for users to browse and install applications in both formats.

The following sections describe how to create packages in each format.

Package management is described in the Package Management chapter of the documentation.
