Readme for koji-install-0.5

[back to package description]


A CLI tool to download and install rpms from a Koji build or task.

Koji is a RPM package buildsystem used by Fedora, CentOS, and some other projects.

By default it only downloads binaries of already-installed subpackages, but there are options to list and select or exclude specific subpackages.

Note koji-install is intended for development and testing purposes and should not be necessary/used normally on production systems, but it can be very helpful for quickly testing an specific package build or update.


By default it uses Fedora Koji.

$ koji-install podman

will download the latest build for your Fedora version, and try to install it. Use --disttag suffix to select a different Fedora version.

$ koji-install TASKID --exclude "*-devel"

will install all the non-devel subpackages from the task.

One can use --hub to specify a different Koji hub build service.

Selecting subpackages

By default only installed subpackages are downloaded and updated, but the following options change the behavior:

--package: select subpackages by name or glob pattern (this doesn't work currently on multiple builds/tasks)

--exclude: exclude subpackages by name or glob pattern

--all: install all subpackages

--ask: ask about each subpackage


$ koji-install --help
Download and install latest package build from Koji tag.
