The full list of packages is now available via https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.gz

Please update aurlist to use that instead of scraping the search results. Incidentally, python3-aur now includes a module and script for accessing the list as well.

@axper
Are you sure? The hash matches for me and builds. Did you try clearing your AUR package building cache directory? Did you comment on the right package?

Can anyone else replicate? Thanks.

You forgot md5sums :)

Added bug fix thanks to ids1024.

XZ-compressed full package list from today:

Same thing with color stripped out:

That's interesting, thanks for the tip, I'm curious how often that list gets updated. If you look at the source link, you'll see a screenshot. Notice, aurlist is meant to emulate the colored output of pacman (same color scheme as packer/apacman AUR helper). Functionally, it contains descriptions which is one of the reasons I threw it together, so I could try to find packages by keywords without a network request each time.

Honestly, I'd rather they opened the API for the AUR up so I could just download the info directly via rsync (and take advantage of delta updating). In the mean time, this is a dirty hack that just crawls the webpages. Another thing I wish was available was /var/lib/pacman/sync/aur.db & /var/cache/pkgfile/aur.files

What advantage does this have over "curl http://cryptocrack.de/files/aurpkglist.txt.gz | zcat | cut -d' ' -f1"?

@axper
Are you sure? The md5 hash looks correct to me...
