Note: the version number of this package doesn't correspond to the version number itch reports.

This package tracks itch-setup versions, which always installs the latest itch. Please don't flag this package as out-of-date, it isn't :)

I just want to say thank you for packaging and maintaining the client.

Not sure why I forgot to comment here, but I've updated that PKGBUILD a while ago to use the official itch installer. The checksums verify that the installer matches upstream, and you get the latest itch app from the itch CDN.

I personally don't care much how it's done, but it's just a little bit bothersome to have one package out of my normal workflow. I format a lot of machines and always install itch (❤), I would like to continue being able to just add it to the list that I pipe to my package manager.

Since I do not care about the internals, and only about the surface, I'm fine with a package that just runs the installer.

I think it would be more sustainable to just download and run the installer, taking care of Arch-specific env variables and packaging conventions (install dir etc, assuming they apply at all, I have not looked into it).

If there is (and there is projected to be for a while) manpower enough to do both things like ainola suggests, that would naturally be the best of both worlds :)

Hey Arch users, itch v25 has finally released, and it comes with its own installer program:

I'm not sure what do about this package. I've crafted a .deb package that just installs the installer, along with a few .desktop files, for shortcuts.

One option would be to have the AUR package compile itch-setup and set up the .desktop shortcuts, like the .deb package does. You can see the .deb building logic here:

Another option would be to have the AUR package just download the latest itch-setup binary from - this way the package wouldn't have to depend on a Go toolchain. It would just have the dependencies required to have the app run (no python, no grunt, no npm - just the few X and gtk libs).

What do you think of those options?

Hi, FrozenCow - Do you have any plans on updating this package? As it stands it does not build without manual intervention. If you are not interested in maintaining, I would be willing to take over.

Dependency nodejs-grunt-cli no longer exists. Looks like it's now nodejs-grunt.

I've just released v23.6.3, which should build cleanly on a fully-upgraded Arch. Let me know if you still have issues.

fasterthanlime commented on 2018-04-30 20:35

It appears the package for v23.6.2 just won't build if you have a recent enough nodejs installed (and this is Arch, so everybody has the latest node).

I'll look into releasing v23.6.3 tomorrow that depends on a more recent node-sass, even though there's absolutely nothing changed in v23.6.2 for Linux (see changelog: )
