Sure, I can be a co-maintainer. However, I have no experience making AUR packages, so it might take me a while to sort things out. I'll see if I can run it by you before I push any changes to the PKGBUILD.

@raiguard sure. Question would be where, i couldn't find any documentation where it looks after this folder. The /usr/share/factorio for data is given, but since this dissection is also not exactly best practice (compared to installing it into /opt/factorio or whatever).

I guess a migration to /opt and linking it all together would be the best practice. But i don't have the time to completely rework this PKGBUILD and test that migrations work/clean up existing stuff properly.

Mind to be a Co-Maintainer for this package?

Could you update the pkgbuild to also install the doc-html folder somewhere? Modding tools rely on this documentation to generate type definitions and autocomplete for code editors.

First-time builds fail because ~/.factorio doesn't exist yet

simple feature request. can we kill the "question" altogether? maybe default to looking up the file in XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR, else using the token to download the tarball (maybe with a 5s timeout or whatever), else fall back to the question?

@E3LDDfrK: Pretty standard, most Arch installations should have it set. I will incorporate it with the next version update (with a fallback to '~/Downloads')

(PKGBUILDs usually check for the 'XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR' Variable)

How standard is ? The PKGBUILD could perhaps check that instead of defaulting to ~/Downloads.

For those who bought Factorio on, you can use the serial number you get to register on the official website and download a proper tarball.

I was thinking that maybe the whole download code could be exiled to a separate project: it adds the following benefits:

  • could be portable (to other distros, or even systems if written in POSIX sh)
  • can be used by all factorio* PKGBUILDs
  • would make the PKGBUILD of factorio* much lighter
  • safety: we get one package for downloads, and not a convoluted PKGBUILD that might change for reasons other than build procedure or version update

What do you think? I'd even do it in January if necessary.

@mickael9: done. Thanks for the advice!
