Storeman Installer

Your rating: None Average: 4.9 (213 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
  • Comment, reply to comments, edit and delete own comments for apps

  • List categories and apps by categories
  • Hide any categories of applications

Yet this is the only (super) actively developed :)
Ah, one question, i noticed you named the app 'harbour-storeman', does it mean you are planning some jolla-store landing?

osetr's picture

I named it so just in convenience of separating community silica applications. I cannot publish Storeman to Harbour because of using prohibited APIs.

Is it just me or does storeman crash after commenting (like I am doing here )?

Shervrar's picture

Guess I will try installing the SDK and figuring out how to create useful crash reports :)

Not sure if it's been mentioned already or not, but I wish there was an option to sort search results, or at least that the default would be newest first, or something orderly. It seems like the list is prettt random. .. (or maybe that's one of those things that's controlled by openrepos)

osetr's picture

The search results are controlled by OpenRepos. To perform sorting on a device Storeman has to download all search results of a query (it's expensive in data and time). You can try to ask the OpenRepos administration to add some sorting rules to the API.

[Feature request] It would be possible to add an option in Storeman to copy in memory the openrepos url of an app to easy sharing in other application?

osetr's picture

Yes, I want this feature myself but always forget to implement it :)

Some app like vibration test or ad control, i hv removed in storeman, but I relaunch storeman later, it still show a tick and installed, then i remove again, it said package not found, then i swipe to last page, it still shows a tick there

Every time I update any apps in Storeman I get an error telling me that Yalp Store has crashed.
Got me baffled. :/

osetr's picture

I have no ideas...

Hello, it would good to have an option to allow / filter out adult content on the store. I checked in the settings but apparently there is no such option.

Mick's picture

Why? As far as I know there's no adult content on Openrepos.

osetr's picture

Now there is :)

Mick's picture

Yeah. Just saw it. LOL I think we need a new store for that called "Fapman".

osetr's picture


Currently there are no categories on OpenRepos like adult or something similar to add filters. Try to write to the administration first.

glanternier's picture

Hello, the Adult category has been created on Openrepos

osetr's picture

Yes I know. No time to add it to Storeman

glanternier's picture

Ok thanks for the feedback. The administration is managing the implementation of new functionalities like categories or filters?

osetr's picture

Categories are managed by OpenRepos. Storeman is a client application for OpenRepos and it is developed separately of OpenRepos (by different developers). I can add a filter to Storeman to hide applications of certain categories or by certain tags. I think that filtering by categories is more prefferable due several reasons. So there are two ways to add filtering: 1) convince the administration to add the "Adult" category to OpenRepos; 2) convince me to add filtering by tags :)

glanternier's picture

Openrepos has confirmed that they implemented an "Adult content" category

osetr's picture

Yes, I was informed too. I'll implement filtering.

glanternier's picture

I just sent a request for an "Adult content" category in OpenRepos. I am thinking that filtering will be easier to implement if based on a category rather than on tags.

No chance to update it even if refresh on terminal :-(

Dude259's picture

It worked, thanks!
But do you perhaps know why this was necessary in the first place?

osetr's picture

Letter E - experience. I've even written about it in the description section.

Dude259's picture

Installing apps is failing on:

File './noarch/factory-session-0.1.2-10.4.1.jolla.noarch.rpm' not found on medium ''

Any idea what the problem might be?

I'm on Sailfish version

Storeman version: 0.1.2-1

Have you tried devel-su pkcon refresh?
