Lightbulb Fedora Utils for Getting things done

Fedy lets you install multimedia codecs and additional software that Fedora doesn't want to ship, like mp3 support, Adobe Flash, Oracle Java etc., and much more with just a few clicks.

Updated, always

Fedy automagically finds the download links for latest versions of software you choose to install and adds repositories wherever possible, so that you are always up-to-date.

The built-in updater also ensures that Fedy itself is up-to-date.

For the script junkie

You can perform operations from the command line, and even use it in scripts to automate tasks. To see all command line options supported, run the following in the Terminal,

fedy -e list
The downloaded files are saved in a folder named "fedy_dl" in your home directory, so that you can use them on another computer, or if you need to reinstall Fedora, without having to redownload.

Explore new stuff

Fedy aggregates the repositories available for the specific Fedora version from the fedorapeople repository in an easy to use list.

The repositories can be easily added with a few clicks. No more messing around with manual hunting and downloading of .repo files.

Open and extensible

Fedy is released under GNU GPL V3.0 and the source code is publicly available on GitHub. So you can play with the code and see what it does.
