If you want/need help, let me know. Otherwise, will look forward to the update. (AUR recently started sending commit notifications.)

Thanks @xiota, agreed the build could use some modernization. I'll take a look this weekend.

  • Please update to PEP517 install.
  • Version shouldn't have v prefix. Please update pkgver() to remove it.

    Note: No need to add epoch because [0-9] > v[0-9].

Thanks for the hint @maximbaz. I believe the problem here was upstream (pytest-runner was included in the flashfocus setup_requires but there was no good reason for it). The PKGBUILD should now work as-is.

Hello, you don't need pip or wheel (as far as I understand this will encourage installing dependencies not from Arch repos but from other sources), you just need to add python-pytest-runner to makedepends and it will compile.

Package is missing python-pip and possibly python-wheel as its makedepends. This package will not build otherwise.

"python-pip" is needed for build, isn't needed after that.

I had to install pip, otherwise the installer would fail for me - is this something that should be specified in the build file?

Hi BigfootLives sorry for the slow response. I am unable to reproduce, are you still having this problem?

Looks like this package now fails to build:

==> Starting pkgver()...
fatal: No names found, cannot describe anything.
==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to be empty.
==> ERROR: pkgver() generated an invalid version:
error making: flashfocus-git
