@fettouhi you have to change the SHA256 checksum in PKGBUILD to 422651ae84d53c82136af8f27bb77ff37d69916cc5ddde42cdb9e54cbf193fc9

(the checksum of the github archive changed for unknown reason)

A word of caution about kitch: It's currently 850+ commits ahead of the stable version, many parts of the app have been rewritten.

However, I *have* very recently changed the release scripts so it doesn't matter which version of npm is used when building kitch (it just doesn't do `npm prune` at all).

I'm hoping for a prompt release of the next version, and there's always downgrading npm as a workaround for the current version!

If you have issues with itch, you can try the development version called kitch. It worked fine for me.

@onizou I'm a native French speaker, so I'm looking over your suggestions now & approving most of them. Thanks! Note that the app has self-update for locales, so as soon as I'm done updating them, they'll appear in whatever version of the app you're currently running.

I'm also looking to submit a PR to npm to help 5.4.0 ship faster and/or find a solution that doesn't rely on "npm prune"

phunni commented on 2017-07-24 20:54

thanks - running "npm install -g npm@5.2.0" has fixed it for now.

onizou commented on 2017-07-24 20:32

Oh and since I have the opportunity: I made many suggestions to correct and improve the french translation of itch. But there seems to be too few french-speaking translators to validate them. Some have been automatically accepted, but the huge majority remains on hold.
What can I do so that they are accepted and arrive on the next version on AUR?

onizou commented on 2017-07-24 18:48

Thanks for these informations. :)

Re the "May not delete" error: it's an npm bug introduced in npm 5.3.0 - I've been following the issue closely but no word from the developers there yet.

You might be able to work around it by running `sudo npm install -g npm@5.2.0` - to downgrade to npm@5.2.0, which doesn't have the issue. Note that pacman may complain about this later, since it'll definitely overwrite files that were installed by it.

You might also be able to use the downgrader AUR package to roll back to npm 5.2.0.

I'm really sorry about this, it's happening completely outside of our control and there are no easy workarounds - I'm not even confident the hard workarounds would work. The real fix is for npm 5.4.0 to ship, so we're waiting for that.
