python-pycryptodome, python-pyopenssl, python-requests, python-protobuf and python-clint are not required.

gplaycli demands specific gpapi versions and besides that, the upstream has made a couple of typos in the past that caused wrong package versions to be reported or requested, effectively breaking gplaycli for prolonged periods of time. All in all, gplaycli in AUR often doesn't work without patching upstream sources for either gplaycli or python-gpapi.

@fordprefect, I'm using gplaycli regularly and I'm more than willing to co-maintain or take over both gplaycli and python-gpapi if you wish.

@kyak: I have the same issue, even when gpapi 0.4.1 is installed. I am quite low on time atm, but will try to take this upstream…

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'gpapi==0.4.1' distribution was not found and is required by GPlayCli

gpapi 0.4.2 from AUR is installed here..

Issue is under investigation (upstream bug report opened).
Meanwhile I switched over to non-git versioned dependency for pyaxmlparser (minor change).

@fordprefect: Yes, I am on version local/gplaycli 3.10-1

Whatever I do with gplaycli (gplaycli -s, -d, -v...) I get this output:

Any help?

@kyak: maybe take the slowness to the bugtracker, so the devs are aware of it. I'll do when I have time, but…

@fordperfect: gplaycli 3.9 works fine now. Thank you!

It has become really slow, analyzing apks takes more time than it used to. Perhaps it has to do with switching away from androguard. But it works, and that's more important.
