Chob – To Search for Linux Applications (Flatpak, Snap, and AppImage)

Now that Linux has become a mainstream operating system, it’s important to have tools that are accessible and user-friendly for everyone, regardless of their technical background.

Chob is one such tool. Despite being a command-line application, it is user-friendly and allows you to easily search for and install software packages. These packages come in formats like Flatpak, Snap, or AppImage, which are convenient because they encapsulate all dependencies, reducing system clutter.

How do you use Chob?

First, download the executable file for your Linux distribution from the ‘Releases‘ section on the tool’s website. Next, grant execute permissions to the downloaded file using the command:

chmod +x chob-linux

To run Chob, use the following command, substituting ‘PROGRAM’ with the name of the package you’re searching for:

./chob-linux PROGRAM

This method eliminates the need to visit various websites to find the right software. Chob simplifies the process, allowing you to easily retrieve Snap, Flatpak, or AppImage packages with a single command.
