I love the transparency patches, and I know this is also a problem with the original code package, but unfortunately this just isn't compilable, because it uses nodejs-lts-dubnium instead of nodejs, and because they conflict, I can't install nodejs-lts-dubnium even temporarily to build it, a ton of packages use nodejs as a dependency, and to uninstall nodejs I would have to remove a lot of other packages, you're either going to have to provide some binary source like a -bin package, or an arch repository, or get it to build with nodejs instead of nodejs-lts-dubnium, I haven't tested it, so it may compile.
Ultimately the code's PKGBUILD isn't very good, it uses the wrong nodejs, uses both npm and yarn, python2, and electron4.
I guess the easiest option would be a bin package, that's what all the other aur packages have chosen.
