Revision as of 06:50, 28 April 2013

Authors of each front end should post a short (2-3 line) description of their creation, along with a homepage link and an AUR link (where applicable). A link to a screenshot page would also be nice (if applicable).

Secure column in comparaison table

Description says "tries to protect the user", I don't know what "tries" means but if we take the default behavior of aur helpers marked as secure :

  • owl remains on cower to download deps so, it doesn't source PKGBUILD but calls makepkg without further questions, so finally, PKGBUILD is sourced.
  • aura does the same
  • pbfetch sources PKGBUILD (even if it removes build ())
  • pacaur sources PKGBUILD (it can be configured to remains on cower)

...

As far as I know, only cower is secure (it builds/installs nothing) and spinach (and pacaur with secure on) ask before calling makepkg.

The only thing secure in dealing with AUR package is knowing what AUR is about.

My guess is that the "Secure" column is an adaptation of the "Manually Parses PKGBUILD*" column in this old revision, see also the note at the bottom. -- Kynikos (talk) 06:50, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
