Your build failed before reaching the test part.
I talked with the author and he just added a command to avoid downlading extra frameworks needed for testing.
I updated the package to reflect the changes.

Those tests appear to fail the compile for me on armv7, yet the application worked fine before adding them. I'll have to do some more testing, but this is what I get now: http://hastebin.com/joqeraqeho.scala

It could be a different change upstream that caused it, but the latest stable tag still builds for me on arm, and is the reason I created the pkgbuild for it.

justin8: done.
All: I enabled running the tests after the build to have a piece of mind that the package works correctly since it's a git version.

@freestyler7

Can you please add provides='j4-dmenu-desktop' and conflicts='j4-dmenu-desktop' as per the vcs guidelines now that there is a j4-dmenu-desktop package.

@freestyler7

Can you please add provides='j4-dmenu-desktop' and possibly conflicts='j4-dmenu-desktop' (I think the provides will automatically sort out conflicts and appears to be the preferred way to do it for -git and non-git packages)

@freestyler7:

there are already versioned releases. I've created a pkgbuild on the AUR for the latest stable version of j4-dmenu-desktop if you wanted to use that instead.

I'm complying with the VCS PKGBUILD Guidelines as specified here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VCS_PKGBUILD_Guidelines

Some aur helpers have support for working with Version control packages.
For example yaourt has the --devel flag:

--devel
With -u or --sysupgrade, search an update for devel packages.

The problem with this is that a package manager won’t recognize the update because the pkgver doesn’t change.

You could try leaving out the pkgver variable and only specify the function. Maybe yaourt “gets” it then.

Another solution could be to keep master branch stable and make experimental changes in another branch. :)
