Bread :bread:

Install, update and remove AppImage from GitHub using your CLI. (Fork of AppImage ClI Tool)


  • Install from the GitHub Releases
  • Update with ease


Download The Bread Binary into /usr/local/bin

sudo curl -L -O /usr/local/bin/bread

Give Executable Permissions To Downloaded Binary

sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/bread

One Liner:

sudo curl -L -o /usr/local/bin/bread && sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/bread


Just Remove the binary

rm -v /usr/local/bin/bread

NOTE this won’t delete the app you’ve installed.


NOTE if the user and repo in user/repo are same then you can just specify the single name itself, which means libresprite/libresprite is equal to libresprite

bread install user/repo

bread update user/repo

List all of the installed apps

  • Improve UI
  • Work On Reducing Binary Sizes
  • Add Support For Installing Directly Via URLS
  • Add 32 Bit Builds
  • Add Auto Updater Which Can Update The Bread Itself
  • Add --version To Get The Version (Done in v0.2.2)
  • Mirrors:
    • I Would Like To Introduce Concept Of Mirror Lists Which Contain The List Of AppImages With The Download URL, tho currently i am not working on it but in future i might.
