Getting started with BlueChi

On Fedora and CentOS-Stream systems (with EPEL repository enabled), all components of BlueChi can be directly installed via:

dnf install bluechi \
    bluechi-agent \
    bluechi-ctl \
    bluechi-selinux \


The command above installs BlueChi’s core components - bluechi and bluechi-agent - as well as additional packages. bluechi-ctl is a CLI tool to interact with BlueChi’s public D-Bus API provided by bluechi (controller). An SELinux policy is installed via the bluechi-selinux package. The last one supplies the typed python bindings, which simplifies programming custom applications that interact with BlueChi’s API.
