@teras: I'm sorry you're having trouble with wormhole. I have tested it on three machines now and I can not reproduce the problem.

I have spoken with a friend of mine who also uses it, and it is broken for him. My suggestions is remove, then reinstall the package and see if that fixes it. I installed a fresh image on a Pi today and installed it, and everything works as expected. I'm able to send and receive files.

If anyone else is having this issue, please let me know. Especially if you have a fix for it too. >:-)

For me the package doesn't work again due to txtorcon problem. Any idea how to fix it?

wormhole stopped working because of python-pyasn1 0.3.4-1, it requires version 0.3.3.

@pigmonkey thanks for the heads up on the dependancy. I went ahead and added it to the PKGBUILD. It is, of course, broken like you said, but hopefully the txtorcon package will be fixed soon. It almost looks to me like it needs to be a split package to provide both python2-txtorcon and python3-txtorcon, but I'm not sure. I didn't spend all that much time looking at it, but when I changed the PKGBUILD to require python2-twisted, it installed, but wormhole still failed to work. If everyone is ok with waiting a couple days to see what happens with txtorcon, I'll wait and see. If, however, anyone needs it ASAP, just let me know and I'll see what I can do.

This is currently broken due to an out of date txtorcon. Magic wormhole now requires >=0.19.3

The package works for me both with and without arguments, without python-ipaddress or python2-ipaddress installed. I would rather not install unnecessary AUR packages.

@grawity: I didn't have any trouble with it without ipaddress installed either, until I ran it with no arguments, and then, for some reason, it gave a traceback. Installing ipaddress fixed this issue, so I went ahead and included it in the deps.

Uh, that really doesn't look right. The ipaddress module has been part of Python stdlib ever since 3.3 – there should be no reason to install it for 3.x separately...

This package works for me without python-ipaddress. However, it looks like I do have python2-ipaddress installed from Extra for another package.

By installing AUR package python-ipaddress this issue is resolved. Maybe add it to the dependencies?
