A pagure client for querying projects and users.


By default it uses the Pagure server instance (aka Fedora dist-git), but this can be overriden by the --server option.

List/search for repos

$ pagure list emacs\*

Note by default ‘orphan’ owned packages are excluded.

One can also filter by owner or committer.

List user’s projects

Count projects of a user:

$ pagure user -s --count mattdm

List groups:

$ pagure groups

More commands

  • branches lists the git branches of a repo

  • issues to query and list issues

  • users to list usernames of users

  • username shows the fullname of a user

  • git-url shows the git urls for a repo


Use --help to get help on individual commands:

$ pagure list --help
Usage: pagure list [-s|--server SERVER] [-c|--count] [(-j|--json) | (-y|--yaml)]
                   [(-F|--only-forks) | (-f|--include-forks)]
                   [-n|--namespace NAMESPACE]
                   [(-o|--owner OWNER) | (-u|--username USERNAME)] [PATTERN]

To build the latest release you will need cabal-install and ghc, or stack:

stack install pagure-cli or cabal new-install pagure-cli.

Or to build from the git source, run directly without the package name.


pagure-cli is packaged in Fedora (since F34).


Pagure rest API can be found on pagure servers: eg There are still many unsupported commands and options. Please open a ticket or PR to request adding more.

I discovered a client in Rust by decathorpe.
