Sorry guys, i tested the package update on a non-clean environment; until upstream provides a fix, i included the icon.

The reason the 1.6.x builds fail is because icon.png is no longer available in the release zip but only inside the asar archive. I've filed a request with the maintainer to change that:

The other option is to depend on Node during the building, install the asar module and extract the file from there.

Building 1.6.1-1 seems to fail:

$ ldd /opt/keeweb-desktop/KeeWeb | grep gtk => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fa9dce23000)
$ pacman -Qo /usr/lib/
/usr/lib/ is owned by gtk2 2.24.31-1

I think there's also a dependency to gtk2 in order to run the application.

Concerning the merge, please note the idea has been accepted, but the discussion to get only the webapp from the keeweb package is still ongoing:
When fixed, the merge could happen.

I accept, as it will make this package much lighter. This package was intended to be a quick and dirty integration, and deserves a better one.

Following a discussion initiated by email a few months ago with fthiery and some discussion with Arch TU on IRC, I think keeweb should be merged into this package.

AUR packages should always be built from source when available and not rely on binaries (I think there is even a rule about this on the wiki). This is what I do with mattermost. Also, as this package basically reuse binaries, it should be named keeweb-bin or keeweb-desktop-bin.

This package installs in /opt and has a name written in capital letter (KeeWeb). Both are questionable choices and I think (even if this require a bit more decencies and sed hacking) that the package keeweb better integrates with the system (not installed in /opt, name in lowercase keeweb, like any other UNIX tool and is way lighter as it doesn't come with electron built-in).

My idea is to merge keeweb into this package (replacing this one by keeweb). Since keeweb can be installed as a web app as well (server), I'm gonna provide a new PKGBUILD for keeweb.

Indeed, it should be fixed now. Didn't see that one since libxss is required by chromium, mplayer, mpv, spotify, ... :)
