Users can choose to use fvm-sourcebuild to build packages that use fvm, if they want to build flutter engine from source.

Packagers: Consider using aur/fvm.

aur/flutter-bin is needed to provide a working stable flutter package. It is intended to be installed by itself, without any other flutter or dart package.

The main install directory is /opt/flutter. Write-permissions are provided by adding users to the flutter group or with a writable unionfs mirror at ~/.cache/flutter_*.

The conflicts are needed to prevent co-installation with other flutter packages. The provides are needed to capture the build depends of packages that use flutter.

@Dieter_be I'll consider your suggestions, but not going to make any changes now [to the scripts]. I've updated the install messages.

Dieter_be commented on 2024-07-06 20:16 (UTC)

@xiota perahps your wrappers and scripts should live in a separate repository, so they can be properly contributed on with issues and PR's. they also seem distribution agnostic

i believe /usr/bin is only meant for programs or scripts, your flutter_init is meant to be sourced and not executed, so it doesn't seem /usr/bin is appropriate for it.

there's quite a lot going on in your scripts and some comments in it would be quite helpful.

your approach to allow both unionfs OR direct-writeable /opt/flutter (via flutter group) is quite interesting. a note about this during package installation would probably be a helpful clarification. i don't think i a saw one.

@Dieter_be Flutter expects write permissions to the SDK directory. This is generally undesirable and causes problems for system-wide installs. The script allows flutter to write somewhere else (~/.cache/flutter_local). If you prefer to allow flutter to write to /opt/flutter, add your user to the flutter group. Set the SDK directory in other software manually.

Dieter_be commented on 2024-07-06 15:14 (UTC)

why are you adding your own /usr/bin/flutter and /usr/bin/wrapper wrappers and your custom /usr/bin/flutter_init script? maybe: 1) reconsider whether this is really necessary 2) if it is, document the purpose of it

this seems to break correct functioning of flutter. i'm trying to figure out what's happening. more details here https://github.com/Dart-Code/Dart-Code/issues/5174

@xiota: Thanks for the tip! I hadn't heard of FVM. I'm now using it successfully with my two Flutter packages, yubico-authenticator and musicpod-git.

Thanks for the package. I had a bug when using any command provided from this package, the result of the groups command would be printed before anything the command does.

For example:

$ dart --version
sys network power boinc adbusers docker lp wheel emak flutter
Dart SDK version: 3.3.4 (stable) (Tue Apr 16 19:56:12 2024 +0000) on "linux_x64"

This created some problems down the line.

So here is the fix I applied in /usr/bin/flutter_init to stop printing my groups:

diff --git PKGBUILD PKGBUILD

Found spelling mistake in PKGBUILD:

"if ! grep "$MOUNT_DIR" <<< "$PATH" > /dev/null2 >&1; then" should be: "if ! grep "$MOUNT_DIR" <<< "$PATH" > /dev/null 2>&1; then"

notice the "/dev/null2"
