To be blunt, what's the reason to keep using this one? It performs poorly compared to most if not all other AUR helpers [1], has no unique functionality of its own, and encourages brittle practices like sourcing PKGBUILDs [2] over using SRCINFO and the RPC, which have existed since 2012. [3]

Thanks yusefmhg, I've added an Issue on GH:

Please track progress there.

I believe there's a bug. When installing a package with a special character in the name (like bisonc++), the tarball can't be retrieved. Seems the problem is the subroutine url_encode being applied twice on the url (which causes the + character to be replaced for %%2b instead of %2b).

Nice AUR helper. Thank you brisbin33.

The --pkg error should be fixed in 4.7.1

Please see the commit message for important implications to split packages:

The version 4.7.0-1 failed to make packages in my case.
Something with makepkg and improper parameter '--pkg'.

Thanks, I think the v5 RPC interface is working in 4.7.0. Please open GitHub issues if not.

aurweb 4.2.0 was released and it includes a new RPC interface, see

I believe a small modification needs to be done on aurget because pacman 5 removed --pkg option:

v4.6 updated to work with the AUR v4 at the default domain.

Users at v4.5 can use the --aur4 flag to upgrade to v4.6.

Users prior to v4.5 will have a small chicken-egg problem, and need to install 4.6 manually as per carstene1ns's comment below.
