  • Using pikaur, how would I disable asking me "Do you want to edit PKGBUILD for <package_name> package? [Y/n]"
    Have a look here. Did you not search for the answer? That's part of the Arch(based) ethos. We tend to like to learn by reading whatever is required. :). Source: about 1 year ago
  • Nala v0.10.0 - Nala's A Legible Apt
    I was also looking for something nicer for Arch, but haven't found anything as nice as Nala. For now, I switched to pikaur, which at least displays updates in a much clearer way. Source: about 2 years ago
  • I created a tool to install AUR packages in 1 click from the website: Aurin
    Nice, but this definately needs a dependency resolver, otherwise it can only install a fraction of the available AUR packages. Since you're already using python, you may adapt your whole code on top a another python-based AUR helper like pikaur. You maybe also could take at the dep resolver of my ABS project. It's python, too, maybe not as clean as pikaur's code but simpler and not too integrated. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Which AUR-helper is recommended?
    I've been using pikaur ever since pacaur became abandonware and I'm very happy with it, can't recommend it enough. Sure, it's not implemented in Rust or Go so it's certainly not as cool as yay or paru but that doesn't really matter much to me, being an end user. I don't really care as long as it does its job, as advertised. Source: over 3 years ago
