devel/appstream-glib - The NetBSD Packages Collection

GObjects and helper methods for AppStream metadata

This library provides GObjects and helper methods to make it easy to read and
write AppStream metadata. It also provides a simple DOM implementation that
makes it easy to edit nodes and convert to and from the standardized XML
representation. It also supports reading of Debian-style DEP-11 metadata.

What this library allows you to do:

 * Read and write compressed AppStream XML files
 * Read compressed Debian YAML files
 * Add and search for applications in an application store
 * Get screenshot image data and release announcements
 * Easily retrieve the best application data for the current locale
 * Efficiently interface with more heavy-weight parsers like expat
