baph

I'd like to recommend baph, a very simple AUR helper written in bash which can search, download, build and update. This is its repo. --Rubo (talk) 20:03, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

It seems to use both gpg and sudo pacman-key to import PKGBUILD keys. Only former should be done; see http://allanmcrae.com/2015/01/two-pgp-keyrings-for-package-management-in-arch-linux/. Otherwise, please test with the packages mentioned in AUR helpers#Legend. -- Alad (talk) 09:20, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
Looks like the basic gpg issue was unaddressed. Also, going over the code, this would only have partial support for file review, and none for diffs, reliable parse/solve, and split packages. Closing this topic. -- Alad (talk) 23:31, 3 September 2021 (UTC)

Is pacaurAUR still active?

pacaurAUR is now a forked version and the new forked version hasn't been updated for more than a year. The author is not responding to issues and pull requests any more. Shall we add a friendly notice about this? Simonmysun (talk) 02:39, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

There's a commit from 11 days ago. [1] -- Alad (talk) 09:13, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

Pacman wrappers

Did yay remove the -Sy and --ask flags as mentioned in this section?

No, it still uses them. Same for paruAUR. -- Alad (talk) 14:58, 3 September 2021 (UTC)

Can I mention paruz?

I wrote a script that is a fzf wrapper for paru and pacman (or really any AUR helper that supports pacman arguments)

And where would this be mentioned? AUR helpers#Graphical? Hard to see from the code what this does or offers over other wrappers. -- Alad (talk) 14:52, 3 September 2021 (UTC)
fzf is a bit different than the rest of those, and anyone who has used fzf before will be interested. Maybe try it out to and let me know what you think. I really need to add more keybindings and a demo gif to the GitHub to really show its strengths. I'll let you know after I've finished that if you don't think it's enough as it is.
