Hey @ZimbiX, thx a lot for packaging this !


Any feedback welcome! =)

Some minor suggestions :

  1. Maybe you could install the documentation as well ? install -Dm644 "gh_${pkgver}_linux_amd64"/*.md -t"$pkgdir/usr/share/doc/github-cli/"
  2. The Arch Build System does allow you to include a changelog into the package, which can then be queried from the installed package by pacman -Qc <pkgname>. There's a PKGBUILD variable for this (just add; you don't need to include the file in the source array, but it needs to be copied into the AUR folder (next to the PKGBUILD).
  3. Have you thought about adding a (hard or at least optional) dependency to git ?

Again, thank you very much.

Cheers !

Thanks for the tips, @glitsj16! =) I've updated it to incorporate them (and provide the new version, 0.5.3)

Thanks for offering this in the AUR. Remarks to improve the PKGBUILD: - pkgdesc should add '- binary' to inform users this is a binary instead of a compiled version; - future-proof by adding 'conflicts=(github-cli)' and 'provides=(github-cli)'; - license should be installed as 644, not 655.
