The best alternative is to use dnf itself. In my opinion you can do a lot with the following simple commands:

dnf search <packagename>, i.e. dnf search webcam

dnf info <packagename>, i.e. dnf info cheese

dnf install <packagename>, i.e. dnf install cheese

dnf upgrade, or dnf upgrade --refresh

dnf history (database with info about each transaction, including undo and redo functions) , i.e. dnf history undo last

You config resides in /etc/dnf/dnf.conf (checkout man dnf.conf), and your software repositories are in /etc/yum.repos.d/

DNF documentation can be found here, and Fedora's DNF wiki page with some basic information is here
