Version has most probably a typo

With the update to version 1.9.0 I had to switch to rehosting the package with archive.org, since it is no longer possible to grab a direct download link from dropbox, or I couldn't figure it out. But I added back the checksum.

thx @samueldy and @midden for pointing things out. should be fixed now.

decent-sampler.desktop should be updated to replace 'Multimedia' with 'Audio' to avoid ending up in the 'Other' section of your application launcher. The icon section also needs to be updated with a hyphen in the middle: 'decent-sampler'.

package() needs to be updated to have Static in the extracted directory name:

@awhb Sorry, forgot to say this is a Python script. (Well, actually a Jupyter notebook, but you could just copy the code into a Python script and run it.) You just need to install the selenium and natsort Python packages. (I did this using a Conda environment, but it looks like you could also install python-selenium from the AUR and natsort from PyPI.) The idea is that the script just gives you the filename and URL, which you could then substitute into a template of the PKGBUILD (e.g., using the jinja2 Python package) to automatically generate an up-to-date PKGBUILD.

@samueldy: unfortunately i have no idea how to implement your suggestion. looks cool tho

samueldy commented on 2022-12-25 21:47 (UTC)

@awhb: the easiest way I can think of is to have a headless browser read that Dropbox page and pull out the latest URL. https://gist.github.com/samueldy/f087e1c56f691280d2f02d7ce732053b This gives you the filename and URL of the latest version, assuming they keep naming the tarballs the same way they have.

I tried playing with the Dropbox API but wasn't able to figure out how to list a shared folder that you haven't added to your own dropbox.

awhb commented on 2022-12-25 09:26 (UTC)

fixed the mismatching checksum for the icon, sorry about that.

besides that i have no idea how to grab the latest package automatically. if anyone can help it would be appreciated.

samueldy commented on 2022-12-25 00:29 (UTC)

The latest update (AUR commit b8d0c65) which changes the icon to one with a transparent background didn't also update the SHA256 hash for this image, so the build is failing. Can you update it?

Also, I think awhb's idea about automatically downloading the most recent version from Dropbox is a good idea and would make this AUR package much easier for everyone to use. Thanks!
