@hayao, thanks for that explanation and quick fix. Changed the PKBUILD from electron20 depend to just electron, and everything worked.

Hyper will show some errors due to not finding some files.

electron20 which is hyper's dependency has been broken and I cannot build it successfully.

I decided to install electron20-bin instead but electron20-bin will install their libraries to /usr/lib/electron20/ but the PKGBUILD will make symlink for hyper to /usr/lib/electron.

Also I found that hyper will work with the latest electron.

Please change the path of symlink or upgrade dependency to fix the error.

I encountered errors when building this package related to node-gyp package, which can be solved by using version 9.3.1 of node-gyp instead of version 9.1.0. You can achieve this by calling e.g.:

sed --in-place 's/"node-gyp": "9.1.0"/"node-gyp": "9.3.1"/g' package.json

during prepare() step.

Hello, nodejs package may be safely moved from depends to makedepends (i.e. it is not needed for Hyper to run).

The new version is out.

i don't understand why this was orphaned, a new stable release hasn't even been released yet. I can assure you the maintainer will probably update this package when 3.3.0 releases.

Hello! I have updated npm dependency for hyper, but I cannot manage the wayland environment patch at the moment (lack of spare time), orphaning the package for now. v3.3.0 is not stable at the moment so I cannot risk updating to it.

jtheoof commented on 2022-05-31 02:40 (UTC)

Also it would be nice to tweak a little the startup script by doing something similar as to what code is doing. This way we would be able to start hyper in a pure wayland environement by just playing with the electron-flags.conf file.
