For anyone who hasn't discovered this already, you can ameliorate the impact of delayed AUR version updates by setting the following in your ~/.config/discordcanary/settings.json file:

{
  // preceding settings (add a trailing comma ,)
  "SKIP_HOST_UPDATE": true
}

This will let the first person who runs into this flag the aur repo quickly and easily with the newest version.

I don't know what's going on, but it looks like Discord is releasing new canary versions everyday. since 15 Nov. there was every day an update.

new version

Would it be possible for this package to change to default Discord window class ("discord") to something more unique ("discordcanary") to prevent canary Discord windows from combining with stable windows due to them sharing a window class? This can be done as follows:

  1. Rename resources/app.asar to some other name (for example _app.asar).
  2. Create a new folder called app.asar inside resources.
  3. Create a package.json file inside the folder:
{
  "name": "discordcanary",
  "main": "index.js"
}

The name property is used by electron as the window's class.

  1. Create an index.js file in the folder:
require("../_app.asar");
  1. Update the discord-canary.desktop file to set the StartupWMClass to discordcanary

Edit: apologies for the formatting, I can't get the markdown numbering to work right.

Could ya make the .desktop file have executable permissions by default? It's normally owned by root and a normal user can activate it, but if you chown it you have to manually mark it as executable.

could you please update the version to 0.0.153 with sha512 6e476d9738000d0648ae4660b089dfe7a4c0462063b84b259dc4e64cfea4bfefa8885c335b26a3f992e87e6b5198b47137c1c5f668b26b990f3c51a369599cdc?
