I've updated the PKGBUILD so it should build and install correctly but a lot of the packages/dependencies that NPM pulls in are full of warnings/vulnerabilities/deprecation so install this package at your own risk.

Upstream is not very active with their last commit being over 2 years ago.

Your best bet is to clone the repository and run npm install locally and then run npm audit to fix the dependencies yourself.

@dvb For some reason the tags on the git repository that the PKGBUILD uses to update it's version is incorrect. Looking through the commit history and the source files shows the version was bumped to 0.6.0. I wasn't sure what to do about that so I listed the newer version in the SRCINFO.

It seems that you have updated only the .SRCINFO (pkgver = 0.6.0) but not the PKGBUILD (pkgver=0.4.14.r79.g0e1746b).

To fix currently failing build, edit line 12 of PKGBUILD, changing 'npm' into 'npm6'.

It fails when there is a space in $pkgdir. Using "$pkgdir/usr" and "$pkgdir" on line 26 and 28 fixes this issue.

Thank you pdxleif and mhertz for the fix and reminder comment and testing. Package builds nicely now.

mhertz commented on 2018-06-08 01:45 (UTC)

As stated by pdxleif, this package fails to build, so kindly fix by deleting line 28 of PKGBUILD, which i've personally tested to work. Thanks in advance! :)

Fails with "rmdir: failed to remove 'usr/etc': No such file or directory"
