Hmm it now creates two empty folders in /opt. Would you consider adding me as a co-maintainer?

@pins thanks for the patch! Applied and it is working again.

The PKGBUILD does not work. It seems like the archives structure was changed significantly in 10.14.0.

I got it working with this patch:

@marza : Thanks to YOU to have taken the time to thank me :-) People often take others' free work for granted.

Do not hesitate to adopt the package. The updates are not so frequent. The only downside is that, unlike Segger (cf. jlink-* packages that I maintain), Nordic change their URL and directory structure at each release. So instead of taking 1mn to make a new release as for Segger's tools, it takes around 10mn. But that would be great of you !

Thank you very much for the maintenance while it lasted :)

While I can't promise anything, I do use the nrf tools on an irregular basis, so I might take a stab at it the next time I need it.

AlexisPolti commented on 2021-07-22 10:36

Sorry, i don't use this tool anymore and don't have time to maintain this package anymore as Nordic keeps changing their URLs, files' and directory' names... So I disown it, feel free to take it back!

AlexisPolti commented on 2021-06-07 17:06

I didn't packahe Python bindings. As I don't have any real interest in this package anymore, if someone wants to take over its maintenance, you're welcome!

AlexisPolti commented on 2021-02-03 18:36

Sadly, not everyone is like you. As a maintainer yourself, you know what I'm talking about. Happy to meet someone who is polite and helps! For the record, I forgot to mention your name in the PKGBUILD, it's now corrected :)

Thanx a lot and I mean it! :-)

CvR_XX commented on 2021-02-03 17:55

No worries, always happy to help keeping the aur up to date!

AlexisPolti commented on 2021-02-03 16:36

Thanx a lot, fixed! :-)
