There is no best one. They all have different features and functionality. Yaourt has similar commands to pacman, and so does clyde, packer, and others. Some designed for speed, others designed for more features. Bauerbill can download packages from multiple sources at once. These are just examples of some of the differences. I hope you will try some out and choose the one that works best for you. [[User:drcouzelis|drcouzelis]] 16:06, 30 March 2010 (EST)

Revision as of 20:07, 30 March 2010

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).

Discuss which AUR helper is the best right here.

Which one is the best?

From reading the details on the page tab, it seems yaourt is the best one as it is easy to use with similar commands to pacman.

Any suggestions? -unsigned
