  • Completely rewritten patch with correct implementation of transparency for electron window!
  • Package will be always build from latest released version, no matter what AUR version says!
  • It actually running from compiled binaries! No need for electron dependency!
  • No conflicting with official release! You can have installed both!
  • Added support for official marketplace!
How to change window color?
"workbench.colorCustomizations": {
    //Black window color with 75% transparency (#RRGGBBAA)
    "window.background": "#000000BF"

..assuming you have a customized theme with all other transparent elements!

Building within clean chroot!

You can build package in completely clean environment without conflicting with any local dependencies (latest nodejs package etc..)!

Execute the following commands inside the package directory:

yes | sudo pacman -S devtools
extra-x86_64-build -c && rm *.log
mapfile -t _pkgs <<< "$(printf '%s\n' code-translucent-*.pkg.tar.zst | sort -Vr)"
sudo pacman -U "${_pkgs[0]}"

..or just run "" script!
