Due to the many issues people have been experiencing the package is now using electron v4, as that's the most recent version supported by the application.

The incompatibility issues with more recent versions run much much deeper, beyond what some simple patches can fix.

Still not fixed:
Why do you need to send these requests?

@NicoHood I received a bug report that installations were failing due to an npm error. Failures could be reproduced on my two systems, both with a normal attempt to install and a clean chroot. Sadly I had a bit less time in the past days so this is a (dirty) temporary fix while I look for a definitive solution to the issue, which seems to have appeared with a recent npm update. Will look into that and move back to npm if a fix is found, but for now the focus was on making it possible to install once again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Why did you switch to yarn?

Updated to 0.8.10 with a patch for the errors encountered. File size has significantly increased though, for the largest part thanks to the new amazon analytics modules. I will be however looking in the next days on ways to reduce the size, some tweaks here and there might work.

EDIT: Updated the package with an improved patch where I included a fix for the package size. Reduced size by +- 30 MiB when compared to vanilla 0.8.10.

Working on 0.8.10 but the developers seem to have done some changes which break the app when compiled from source. I have opened a bug report with them and will update when possible. The bug is that when compiled from source notes will not show, which is really a major issue.

@NicoHood Thanks again for the helpful suggestions, I will incorporate them with the next update.

@clone1612 Two more suggestions:
* Use cp -a instead of -r
* Prefix the github source with: ${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz::

Nice job, the app works perfect for me! Still waiting for them to GPG sign it so I can move it to [community].

Thanks for the helpful advice @tensor5! Incorporated it in this next package release, which fixes all warnings related to npm (save one about an advice of installing with -g), grunt and namcap. If any issues arise feel free to post it.

Hi everyone,

The new package looks good and it's working. Just a couple of cosmetic suggestions:

1. The line `cp resources/app.png ../app.png` could be removed and line 54 changed to `install -Dm644 resources/app.png "$pkgdir/usr/share/pixmaps/${pkgname}.png".

2. I use the `find` command at the end of the file to remove all the useless stuff installed by npm until I get 0 namcap warnings.

With the great help of @NicoHood a complete redesign of the way this package is build was done, with now time for a first release. With such a big overhaul bugs/errors might pop up so if you encounter any issues feel free to comment. It might ask you once for your note storage location, this due the move of the cache to a more proper location.

Package size is down by 66% and we now make use of electron provided by arch itself.
