    Personally I just use the command line, or sometimes GNOME Software for GUI applications. However, there's this project called DNFDragora (https://github.com/manatools/dnfdragora) that seems to be what you're looking for, so if that is the only thing keeping you from switching, I don't think you should be too worried about it.

    Fedora has dnfdragora, but there is no way to add additional Copr repositories from within this UI. It will show your existing Copr repositories and let you enable, disable, and install packages from them, but not actually add new ones or explore all Copr repositories at once.
