@Interaccoonale: No, there's no such thing.

See the way I do it without a user even having to have Flutter installed at all in my musicpod-git PKGBUILD.

@yochananmarqos : OK, while I am wondering is it possible to add an "optional make dependency"? Because I think users may have flutter SDK manually installed in their home dir (it is the second method recommended in the docs).

@Interaccoonale: Packages need to build from source. If you want to submit the binary version, resubmit as flut-renamer-bin.

@m040601, OK, I'll fix it as soon as possible.

You choose a name for the PKGBUILD "renamer" that is very common.

You should change the name of this PKGBUILD.

This word 'rename', 'renamer' etc is very common on the AUR. There are looooots of other PKGBUILD containing it. It will only confuse users searching for your tool.

You also choose to install something to "/usr/bin/renamer"

    ln -s "/opt/$pkgname/renamer" "$pkgdir/usr/bin/$pkgname"

This will create a mess on the users system.

There is already an official Arch package,

$ pacman -Si pipe-rename

Repository      : extra

That installs,

$ pacman -Fl pipe-rename | grep --color=always -i bin -

pipe-rename usr/bin/
pipe-rename usr/bin/renamer

So you are only asking for trouble with this name for the PKGBUILD and for the binary.

Some of my suggestions



pkgdesc='A bulk file renamer written in flutter (dart). '

Dont save words. Add more stuff to it. Say it is graphical for gtk etc.

PS: My opinion:

If you want people to know about your tool, and easly identify it and distinguish it from others. I would also, personally, advise to choose another name for your github repo.
