The package is now up to date. Unfortunately you may have to update it manually because of broken version monotonicity. The previous version was not prefixed so pacman and possibly your AUR helper won't recognize my update as a newer version of the package.

this version builds the "test GUI" which uses the Fox Toolkit. I'm happy to entertain discussion about not doing this by default, but this package has had the test gui for a long time.

as for systemd-tools, I think that's to fulfill the udev dependency. However this already depends on libusb which requires libsystemd, which depends on libudev. I'm not sure if that's quite enough, as much as the actual udev system. But I think it's going to be rare that you're installing hidapi-git without udev in place somehow already.

is there a strong need to drop either of these? They appear to have moderate logic behind them

Hey, sorry to bother again. AFAIK, fox isn't a dependency for hidapi? I am also not sure why systemd-tools is there. Thanks :)

Hey, could you add provides/conflicts?

conflicts=('hidapi') provides=('hidapi')

Hi there; could you please add armv6h to the arch array ? It does compile well (i'm trying to use it on raspberrypi).

Replaced libusbx dep with libusb. Thanks.

I think you can replace libusbx with libusb, no?

Thanks! PKGBUILD updated. I used 0.0.0 for the pkgver though, as suggested at [1]. Please let me know if some other pkgver string is preferred for git repos now.
