Just an FYI on certain warnings appearing during the installation:

  • Warning about optional dependencies -> Bug in npm ignoring the --no-optional flag (

  • Reference to $srcdir ... -> Again unwanted behaviour in npm which saves absolute paths in the package.json file ( These warnings can safely be ignored since package.json is not used after installation.

  • Security alerts -> Upstream issue, I'll try looking into it and fix things where possible

@jimbojim I've tested the package through a regular install and clean build with both working without any issues. Looking at the error it also doesn't seem related to the package, but more likely with your local install. If the issue persists you might find more luck posting it on the Arch forums.

This is failing to build for me:

@SirJson Thanks for that patch! It took a bit longer to fix the package as it's not compatible with Electron 4 (currently available in the Arch repo's) so I had to fix that too. Everything should now be fixed with these patches, let me know if you experience any additional/new issues.

Until they release a new version that builds I stitched together a patch from an upstream commit that fixes the problem:

@nix6839 Thanks for the notice! I'm watching releases on Github but got no notification there. Nonetheless I've updated the package to v0.11.12!

v0.11.12 is out!

Hello, v0.11.11 has been released and this time it seems to be properly tagged on github, so you should be able to build without any issues hopefully. Thanks in advance!

If someone absolutely needs to build v0.11.10 right now he can try my script:

I made it because I needed Boostnote on a system without Arch Linux. The script is based on the PKGBUILD that I found here but I thought why not upgrade the version to v0.11.10 as well.

The installer will make a user local installation (everything stays in your home directory) so it shouldn't clash with any packages. But as I said only if you absolutely need the newest version right now. Using the AUR is usually the better option here.

Also there shouldn't be that much of a difference between 0.11.9 and 0.11.10.

Regarding the update to v0.11.10: I can't update this package until the release is tagged on the main repository (

saw that just now, the tag is still at 0.11.9.

Edit : But, why can't this package be updated? the code is sitting right there. just saying cause they have marked your issue as improvement request.
