Storeman Installer

Your rating: None Average: 4.9 (212 votes)

Installer for the native client for Sailfish OS

Starting from version 0.2.9 Storeman is buit with the help of Sailfish OS OBS and Storeman Installer is used for its installation. To update Storeman prior to 2.9, one need to remove the existing RPM and use the installer or use an appropriate repository for manual update. Further updates will be done automatically. All old RPMs from this repository were archived here.


  • Every SFOS release requires a configured OBS repository. Therefore Storeman installation may not be available for some time after a new SFOS release until maintainers configure a new repository. This is especially true for EA releases
  • If you have any troubles with installing, removing or updating packages after the system upgrade try to run "devel-su pkcon refresh" in the terminal app
  • Storeman can still be unstable! Application name does not affiliated to any other software

Installation instructions:

  • Enable "System → Security → Untrusted software → Allow untrusted software" in the device settings
  • Visit this page using the device’s browser, and tap the harbour-storeman-installer-$version.jolla_.noarch.rpm link further down the page or download the RPM with your computer and transfer it to the device somehow
  • Tap the downloaded or transfered RPM in the device's "File downloaded" notification or in the file browser and confirm the installation
  • Optionally disable back the "Allow untrusted software"
  • Find the "Storeman Installer" icon in the device's app grid, tap it and wait for Storeman installation finishes - the "Storeman Installer" icon should be replaced by Storeman itself
  • The installer itself is removed automatically

Current features:

  • List recently updated applications
  • List installed applications
  • List, add/remove, enable/disable repositories
  • Show applications info similar to the official Jolla store client
  • Install/remove applications
  • All lists are scrollable, data is loaded in the background
  • Search for applications
  • Authorize to using Sailfish Secrets for secure storing of credentials

Hi, currently installed version is available as in the official store client at the end of the app description. Just tap it to expand and you'll see it.

Lovely thank you :)

Thank you! We need to take osetr as development example. Storeman works really well and is a good example that Sailfish can have very good apps.

Great update! Thanks a lot :)
Your enthousiasm drove me to improve the backend of my apps :D

Wow, great update. Thanks.

For some reasons I can't send comments/reply/edit via Storeman anymore.

osetr's picture

Try to reauthorize to OpenRepos

Schturman's picture

Thanks, working now :)But my installed apps detected as Not installed...

I had the same impression, but when I *do* "Wait while repository data is fetched", until "Repository data was fetched" appears, everything works fine (for me with Storeman 0.0.13, e.g. "This device" --> "Repositories" and --> "Installed applications" are not "grayed out").

osetr's picture

Thank you all for your replies. Current implementation of detecting of new versions is not very good and should be rewritten.

Sometimes it doesn't get the latest version of apps. For example MangaSailor. Latest is 1.0.1, 0.4.4 is installed and considered up to date.

Well as soon as infraview updated to latest, storeman showed me the prior version, which was still more uptodate

Kabouik's picture

I do see an update for Infraview just now, using latest version of Storeman.

Same issue for me no update since 0.0.11

MoritzJT's picture

0.0.11-1 Doesn't see updates for anything anymore. Installed it from openrepos
Installed 0.0.12 same issue

It is not yet resolved and applies to any update. The list updates according to openrepos, the repositories do not...

The Greek translation is not included in the rpm

osetr's picture

Oh, I've downloaded it but forgotten to include in the project file.

dglent's picture

It is ok now, thanks!

Nice store application! Much user friendlier than the official one. Thank you.

minitreintje's picture

Is it possible to add formatted text in comments?

osetr's picture

Can you clarify your question? Do you want to type formatted text without manual typing tags?

minitreintje's picture

Oh you can use HTML code in Storeman? Didn't know that...
EDIT: < b > tag not visible...

osetr's picture

Please, read this manual

Use Filtered HTML tags, for example <strong> instead of <b>.

From the 0.0.12 version Storeman renders comments as Rich text which means all of Filtered HTML tags should work. But the comment field is in plain text mode which means that you should type tags manually if you want to format your comment (also some of tags can be inserted with a simple button panel).

olf's picture

Many thanks!
Writing and editing comments is much easier with Storeman 0.0.12 and is definitely preferable to OpenRepos' web-frontend now.
Tried a couple of corner cases, and they were all working well. :)

minitreintje's picture

Nice! Thanks :) Also confirmed the comments above: 0.0.11 sees no update to 0.0.12

olf's picture

Italicized, cited,


and "code" text in comments is not displayed as such in Storeman 0.0.11
Edit: Issue filed on Github.
Edit2: Issue resolved in Storeman 0.0.12

Ok. Thx. However a reboot solved it too.

naytsyrhc's picture

In changelog I can see a new version 0.11, storeman reports itself as 0.10, available from openrepos is stated a 0.9 in storeman. This seems to be wrong, doesn't it? I refreshed the cache already, but nothin changed.

osetr's picture

It was a regression in 0.0.10. Try to download and install 0.0.11 manually or use Warehouse or use pkcon. I will also add this note to the description section.

Kabouik's picture

On my Jolla C, Storeman will never manage to show the list of currently installed apps, it just shows the spinning animation forever (tried as long as 40 min). I wanted to go there to bookmark all my current applications instead of having to search them individually.

There is a typo in the pulley menu in "About Storman" (at least in French).
