If you have problems building this package, try removing the +nightly flag from the cargo line in build().

Thanks for using a proper pkgver() I was gonna email you that, also the message after echo is likely better suited into a .install file

I made some changes in the PKGBUILD I added rustup as dependence to make things easier.

GuessWhatBBQ commented on 2021-05-31 10:40

I've created a modified version of the PKGBUILD here.

The changes along with the reasoning are as follows:

  • makedepends was changed to use rustup instead of cargo to conform to the build instructions
  • build() and package() were changed to conform to the arch rust packaging guidelines, along with some changes for future proofing as the project may create more files later on
  • pkgver() was changed to conform to the arch vcs package guidelines.

  • Unused variables were removed to cleanup the script.

  • namcap seems to have no complaints about dependencies so I didnt touch that.

I have a question about whether the toolchain override (i.e the +nightly flag) should be present in the PKGBUILD or should it be left upto the rust-toolchain file in the repo (i.e the default). @elkowar and @McFranko some input would be appreciated.

Something should also be done to handle systems with wayland or specify that this is for xorg in the package description.

I had the same error and this guide helped me:

Basically I installed rustup (replacing rust), then ran rustup toolchain install nightly. Then the installation ran without problems.

Can not build it - message is error: no such subcommand: +nightly ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Can you assist?

Hi, McFranko! Thanks for taking others' suggestions into account.

Please review the Rust packaging guidelines [1] and general packaging guidelines [2] so as to better the quality standards of your package. This will help all users of your package, so it's important that you review your PKGBUILD as there's a lot that can be improved.

If the nightly toolchain is necessary, I recommend using rust-nightly as make dependency.

rossogilvie commented on 2021-01-27 14:54

I'd not used rust before and had a little trouble getting this to install. For me this package installed the rust package as a makedepends, but then failed to build eww with error E0554: feature attributes are only allowed on the nightly release channel.

Instead (following archwiki) I installed rustup from the repos and ran "rustup toolchain install nightly". Then I was able to build eww.

I'm not sure if the package maintainer can do anything about this, but I hope it helps someone else.

You should use the install command instead of the mkdir and then the mv command. Also, the pkgver errors:

==> Starting pkgver()...
fatal: No names found, cannot describe anything.
