== Installing software ==

The recommended way to install new software on Debian, is to use [[PackageManagement|Package Management]] tools to install packages from the official repositories.
These repositories should contain most of the software you will want to install, allowing you not to rely on external sources.


== Finding Software ==

There are several ways to learn what software included in Debian can cover your specific needs.

 * Use a [[PackageManagementTools|package manager]] to browse software categories, sort them, and search through available packages.
 * [[https://debtags.debian.org/search/|Debtags web search]] provides means to search software according to their various facets (see [[Debtags/SearchHelp|Help page]]).
 * Search and browse packages on [[https://packages.debian.org|packages.debian.org]]. Each package may have a list of "recommended", "suggested" packages which complement the main package, and a list of packages with similar functionality. The [[https://packages.debian.org/unstable/main/newpkg?format=rss|new packages RSS feed]] lists packages recently added to [[DebianUnstable|Debian Unstable]]
 * other sources of ideas include this wiki, in particular through the Software portal, and other web pages, like blog posts from [[PlanetDebian|Planet Debian]]
 * [[https://snapshot.debian.org/|snapshot.debian.org]] - the snapshot archive allows access to all past and current packages in the Debian archive based on dates and version numbers.

You can see full list of packages coming with Debian Stable [[https://packages.debian.org/stable/|here]]

== Installing software form other sources ==

Provided you know what you are doing, you might also get software by :

 * Installing packages from [[DebianRepository/UseThirdParty|unofficial/third-party repositories]]
 * Downloading and running ready-to-use binaries
 * Building the software from sources.
 * Deploying software in containers such as [[Docker]]
 * Using other package managers such as [[FlatPak]], Nix/Guix...
 * writing your own! ;)
