so is this dead?

When trying to install on Manjaro I get this error:

could not satisfy dependencies: unable to satisfy dependency 'nodejs-lts-carbon' required by cerebro

when attempting to run, error is returned, saying Pango-ERROR **: Harfbuzz version too old (1.3.1)

will this app be pointless to run from now on? I know this app has not been maintained by the original coder for 2 years now

Cerebro has not been maintained for a few months now, and I have switched to a different application launcher - rofi. I like it very much and I think I'm staying permanently with it.

I'm thus disowning this AUR package, please feel free to take over maintaining it, in case new versions will ever be released.

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.

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It is not out-of-date, 0.3.1 is the last available version.
