List of installed apps

How do I get a list of installed apps from:

  • Jolla store
  • OpenRepos

Is it somehow possible to use this list on another phone to install all the apps in the shell?

List what repos you have configured:

zypper lr

Select a repo to list packages from, e.g. store:

zypper pa -ir store

Should be possible to use as a template for installing, but takes a bit more scripting with adding repos etc.
But i haven’t looked in to that, since i like the implicit opportunity of cleaning out unused apps…


For apps from openrepos you can use Storeman. It will be easier then writting scripts.


You may also take a look on TJC where this has been discussed some time ago.

There should be more because I remember to have answered on such question some time ago…
First one is for android data/app listing. Second similar to attah’s approach.

If you need to move app data to new device you can use
But you have to compile this app by yourself.

That’s nice! Then you can do something like

for repo in $(ssu lr | awk '/^ - /{ print $2}') ; do zypper pa -ir $repo ; done | awk -F\| '/^i/{print $3}'

to get all installed packages (not Apps!) or

for repo in apps store ; do zypper pa -ir $repo ; done | awk -F\| '/^i/{print $3}'

to get all “Apps” (with supporting libraries) or

for repo in $(ssu lr | awk '/^ - openrepos/{ print $2}') ; do zypper pa -ir $repo ; done | awk -F\| '/^i/{print $3}'

to find all packages from OpenRepos. Nice!


I regularly comile software on linux. But how do I compile software for sailfish? It seams cumbersome with touch. Should ssh be used. But how about the tool chain? Or is the binary compiled on a computer and moved to the phone. I remember this was how it was done on N9 and N900.
