Revision as of 01:21, 28 August 2018

Comment: This is draft for AUR helpers started from Talk:AUR helpers#Show which unsafe flags are used by default.

Legend

The columns have the following meaning:

  • File review: does not source the PKGBUILD at all by default; or, alerts the user and offers the opportunity to inspect the PKGBUILD manually before it is sourced. Some helpers are known to source PKGBUILDs before the user can inspect them, allowing malicious code to be executed. Optional means that there is a command line flag or configuration option to prevent the automatic sourcing before viewing.
  • Diff view: ability to view package differences on inspection. Besides the PKGBUILD, this includes changes to files such as .install or .patch files.
  • Git clone: uses git-clone(1) by default to retrieve build files from the AUR.
  • Reliable parser: ability to handle complex packages by using the provided metadata (RPC/.SRCINFO) instead of PKGBUILD parsing, such as aws-cli-gitAUR.
  • Reliable solver: ability to correctly solve and build complex dependency chains, such as ros-lunar-desktopAUR.
  • Split packages: ability to correctly build and install:
– Multiple packages from the same package base, without rebuilding or reinstalling multiple times, such as clionAUR
– Split packages which depend on a package from the same package base, such as libc++AUR and libc++abiAUR.
– Split packages independently, such as python-pyalsaaudioAUR and python2-pyalsaaudioAUR.
  • Clean build: does not export new variables that can prevent a successful build process.
  • Batch interaction: ability to prompt before the build process, in particular:
  1. Inspection of package files or their differences;
  2. Summary of package upgrades;
  3. Resolution of package conflicts and installations.
Note:
  • Table rows are sorted by column values, where Yes or N/A take precedence over Partial or Optional and No, or alphabetically if values are equal.
  • Optional or asterisk(*) means that a feature is available, but only through a command-line argument or configuration option. Partial means that a feature is not fully implemented, or that it partially deviates from the given criteria.

Pacman wrappers

Warning: pacman(8) wrappers abstract the work of the package manager. They may (optionally or by default) introduce unsafe flags, or other unexpected behavior leading to a defective system.
