Sorry @sharkdp if this a spam comment, but is really npm needed as dependency or could it be only as makedepends? I'm just curious.

Thank you aulonsal. This should be fixed in 5.6.0-2.

The --user root option has been dropped in npm v7 and it now just installs a package called root when you do that. See or

Please replace it with calling chown -R root:root "${pkgdir}" at the end of the package function, as mentioned on the updated page.

Starting with 5.5.0, all PureScript make dependencies are not needed anymore. Installation should be much easier now.

Starting with the latest version, bower is not needed anymore.

nodejs-pulp still has bower in makedepends.

Does not build here. Not sure what is going on:

Builds suucesfully, but fails at browserifying.

I hope that the issue is fixed in 5.1.2. Insect will now be built from source. I don't think we need bower as a build-dependency as it will be installed via npm.
