@lostkhaos Thank you!

@jeremejevs nice. Folded in the guideline changes. Been mildly irritated by that permission problem too.

@lostkhaos Please, take a look at the Node.js package guidelines: I personally am interested in the addition of the permission fix (777 vs. 755), but it also explains why the cache override suggested by @je-vv is needed. And why download the tarball, but not use it when installing? Here's a full PKGBUILD which appears to be inline with the guidelines:

@je-vv, does this solve a build issue or is it a sanity thing? I tried with and without that line and compared the generated packages and they look pretty similar to me other than timestamps.

Can you please add export npm_config_cache="$srcdir/npm_cache" prior to calling any nbm command? This will prevent dirtying other areas, and also will prevent as well picking caches from other/prior builds which have set this up.

@balwierz indeed, npm warns you about this at least (although the comment that your version is out-of-date is incorrect). You can watch the issue on github to see when they fix it:

It won't build with the future nodejs currently in community-testing:

$ npm --version
$ yaourt -Qa nodejs

Could you please update?

I had to install extra/gconf for the generated apps to work, should be a dependency.
