Just a big thank you for all the work done with "send" and "ffsend".

Here in the AUR, maintaining the PKGBUILD's and on Gitlab developing the tools.

I got remembered about "Send" and "FFsend" when using Libredirect, (Tip, "Libredirect is also extremely interesting and importan for Firefox users)

Ffsend is very very usefull and underrated, especially for command line lovers. Pitty it's not better known. Here, and outside Archlinux. Hope this gets more votes. And can make it to Archlinux official packages one day.

Especially usefull "ffsend-bin" precompiled. For the ones who dont want the hassle of having to compile Rust themselves.


Only 64-bit (x86_64) ...binaries are provided.
For other architectures and configurations you may compile from source.

Hope one day you could also release automated binary builds for ARM in gitlab. I know it might not be easy configuring Gitlab CI for Rust in non x64 architectures.

But then we could also have "ffsend-bin" here for

arch=('x86_64') ... aarch64 ... armv7h ... etc

My little underpowered Raspberry Pi's and Chromebook running Archlinux Arm would love it ... :-)

@petrmanek Interesting. Is reachable for you? The URL in your snippet successfully links to the fish completion file for me.

@goll This should be fixed now.

@ogarcia All right! Planning to change that soon. Created an issue for it over at gitlab/timvisee/ffsend.

@timvisee this package must be renamed to ffsend-bin since is based in a binary source file (and have a valid sha256sum). The package that you called ffsend-git must be this package. If you want to maintain a ffsend-git then the source must be the git master branch, not a tag archive and have pkgver() function. You can look my package numix-cursor-theme-git as sample of a -git package.

@physkets Thank you for the heads up. I decided to use -git in the end, as that seemed more common (versus -bin) judged by the package counts. What do others think?

physkets commented on 2019-03-13 07:58 (UTC)

I think it is good practice to have a '-bin' suffixing the name, because people will assume that it is being built from source unless mentioned.

emlun commented on 2019-03-12 17:52 (UTC)

Yeah, that makes sense. I know many other packages use a remotely hosted binary, but I feel like many of them are very large programs that would take an impractically long time to compile (Chromium or Firefox, for example). Anyway, if you've thought about it and concluded this is the best way to go then that's cool. That's why I included the "if you agree" part. :)

I tried ffsend-git too but hit a snag, I'll add a comment to that package.
