Utilities to generate, maintain and access the AppStream Xapian database.
What is AppStream-Core?
AppStream-Core makes it easy to access application information from the AppStream database over a nice GObject interface. It also contains a small DBus daemon to update the application cache automatically and can be used by a wide variety of programming languages (via GObject-Introspection). In combination with PackageKit in can be used to build Software Centers.
The AppStream Core utilities are alpha software at time, and the API might change a lot during the development process. Please keep that in mind when using it!
