All of the commands below share the following arguments
--verboseLog more detailed information, useful for diagnosing issues.
--help prints out a list of available arguments and parameters for the command
install is the primary command of AppGet, you can use it to install any of the available packages.
--interactive: Start the installer in interactive mode. This allows you to step through the installer manually and select any of the available options. By default AppGet starts installers in passive mode.
--silent: Start the installer in silent mode. This mode tries to hide as much of the installer interface as possible including all progress and status windows.
If AppGet can't find the exact package ID you tried to install, it'll automatically trigger a search and provides you with suggestions. This means you don't have to know the exact ID of the package; you just try to install it and see what AppGet suggests if no exact matches are found.
appget install google-chrome
appget install git -s
appget install visual-studio-code --interactive --verbose
Search AppGet's package repository.
appget search code
appget search google -v
Display a list of all currently installed packages that are known to AppGet. The list will include both outdated and up-to-date packages.
Keep in Mind
Currently AppGet can't match 100% of packages available in the library. That's why some of your installed packages might be missing from this list even though they are available in the AppGet library. We are constantly working to improving the matching algorithm.
View the package manifest used when installing the package. The output is the raw content of the manifests as available in GitHub.
appget view firefox
appget view git --verbose
Check all applications that are currently installed on the system for available updates (This works even for application that weren't installed by AppGet)
Batch update of all out-dated applications on the system. To see which applications are going to be updated you can use
appget outdated command.
Since some of the applications might require elevated privileges to update we recommend running
appget updated-all from a command line that has been started as administrator. This helps avoid having grant elevated privileges to multiple installers.
Clean AppGet's cache and temporarily folders. Currently
Create a new manifest for a missing application. AppGet will automatically try and figure out most of the values needed but might ask you to fill or confirm anything it isn't sure about.
appget create "https://github.com/atom/atom/releases/download/v1.27.1/AtomSetup.exe"
Always wrap the URL in "" to avoid issues with URLs that contain spaces or special characters.
