@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!

@duthils: can you add -r flag to the read calls in the PKGBUILD ? (mostly the one for the password, so that users can have passwords with backslashes) No need to bump pkgrel for this since it doesn't affect the built package.

@mickael9: Awesome, that's a good idea! I merged your download script and I changed it a bit to make it clearer. Thanks again!

@duthils Sorry, I'm only seeing your reply now (or I already did and forgot about it :P) I modified my script so that it downloads the package if you don't provide anything (ie just press enter). See the factorio-experimental PKGBUILD:

That's very nice, thanks a lot! My only problem with this is that I think one question during installation is already one too many, so I'd like to avoid asking two questions in a row. What do you think about replacing the download question by entering "login" or "download" or "fetch" or whatever word when prompted for the file path?

I've made an improved version of this PKGBUILD that can login and download the game directly from the factorio website, feel free to use it if you like.
