This package and its installed binary should be renamed:

ansi2html ->

The reason is, there already exists an official Arch package "python-ansi2html" that also installs a binary called "ansi2html"

$ pacman -Fl python-ansi2html | grep --color=auto -i bin -

python-ansi2html usr/bin/
python-ansi2html usr/bin/ansi2html

pacman -Si python-ansi2html

so if one tries one after having the other a conflict arises:

yay -S ansi2html

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
ansi2html: /usr/bin/ansi2html exists in filesystem (owned by python-ansi2html)

The checksum still fails – do you plan to update itthe PKGBUILD?

Checksum fails. You really don’t want to target the master branch unless you make it a full-blown VCS package.

The PKGBUILD is valid UTF-8, but it contains mojibake. The author’s name is «Pádraig Brady», not «Pádraig Brady». Since this is effectively a -vcs package, you might want to add a pkgver() function as well and maybe ask for it to be renamed. Alternatively, you might want to point the source array to a fixed ref instead of the master branch, or else the package version won’t match the version that’s actually installed. E.g., when you install this now, you’ll get ansi2html 0.22, but the package will still say 0.16.

thanks! should work now! File encoding looks good on my side: file -bi PKGBUILD text/plain; charset=utf-8

eigengrau commented on 2015-07-18 17:06 (UTC)

The checksum currently fails. (Also, the PKGBUILD seems to be encoded in latin-1).
