Although the bug is still valid and it is impossible to compile cerebro using nodejs v9, I decided to add nodejs v8 to makedepends, so that those of you who build AUR packages in chroot (e.g. via aurutils) will be able to upgrade.

For the rest of you I will provide a compiled package:

If you care about package authenticity, get my PGP key and pacman will verify the package:

$ sudo pacman-key -r 8053EB88879A68CB4873D32B011FDC52DA839335
$ sudo pacman-key --lsign-key 8053EB88879A68CB4873D32B011FDC52DA839335
$ sudo pacman -U

Alternatively just download the package without a signature and install it locally:

$ wget
$ sudo pacman -U cerebro-0.3.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar

@maximbaz Thanks for the explanation!

This is certainly possible, but I'd suggest creating a new AUR package cerebro-bin. The convention is to name AUR packages cerebro if we build the app from sources, and cerebro-bin if we use pre-compiled binaries (such as deb package).

However, talking specifically about cerebro, I must say I've seen more than one case when pre-compiled packages were not based on the release tarball. I'm not exactly sure how that happened, I believe this was a honest mistake, but again - it happened more than once.

That's why I'm personally sticking to this package, at least I can be sure exactly on what source code it is built.

If you create cerebro-bin, feel free to add me as co-maintainer and I'll be updating the pkgversion as new releases are created, I already have a watcher configured monitoring github releases page.

@maximbaz Why do we build it since there's a deb package?

0.3.2 was released recently and has some nice improvements, but it doesn't compile on Arch Linux. Make some noise on the tracking ticket to bring the developer's attention to it, or maybe even suggest a fix :P

It is not out-of-date, 0.3.1 is the last available version.

maximbaz commented on 2017-09-03 12:18

The build issue is fixed with the 0.3.1 version.

maximbaz commented on 2017-07-02 20:24

The build is failing now, tracking issue:

Oh, sorry, I got confused :s
I'll take more attention to this, I promise!

@Deuchnord this package is not out-of-date, and it is not an elasticsearch web admin tool [1], it is an application launcher [2] :)
