Overview

This page is intended to provide a "locator" resource for all the AUR helper scripts out there - for searching and/or building from the AUR.

I would appretiate it if the author of each front end posted a small (2-3 line) description of their creation, along with a homepage link and an AUR link (where applicable). A link to any screenshots would also be nice (if applicable).
