Yep, I forgot to update the checksum for this when the binary changed shortly after publishing v0.9.1 due to some linking problems. I've just updated this to v0.9.1-2 which should fix it.

Thanks for pointing this out :)

Title: Installation Issue: Validity Check Failed for nyaa-bin-0.9.1

Description: Hello,

I'm encountering an issue while trying to install nyaa-bin version 0.9.1-1 using yay. The installation fails due to a validity check error. Here are the details:

Command Used:

yay -S nyaa-bin

-> Failed to install the following packages. Manual intervention is required:
nyaa-bin - exit status 1

Steps Taken:

Retried the installation multiple times.
Cleared the yay cache using yay -Scc and retried the installation.
Manually downloaded the source and attempted to verify the checksum, which did not match the expected value. (I'm new to this so take this with a grain of salt)

Additional Information:

Operating System: Archcraft
yay: v12.3.5 - libalpm v14.0.0
Linux: 6.9.8-arch1-1

Any help or guidance to resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Thanks for the resources, I'll look into their implementations :)

Regarding X11/Wayland clipboards and/or tmux. I have been using these and they implement the "choose the copy command thing". Extremelly usefull things.Maybe you find some inspiration.



Beastwick commented on 2024-03-27 14:52 (UTC)

I'll for sure add those files, hopefully by the next release.

As for the clipboard, it currently won't work without X/Wayland running. I'm pretty sure by default it will try to copy to the CLIPBOARD selection, but I could add an option for Linux to select between primary/secondary/clipboard.

Also, that's a good idea to add a command to be run on copy. I'll see about adding something like that to the next release.

m040601 commented on 2024-03-27 02:09 (UTC)

At the moment you only release a simple binary in the release.

In the future When you start releasing a .tar.gz containing the binary and the man page, etc. You might also want to add a CHANGELOG on NEWS and eventually other help/example files. Usefull for the enduser to keep up with the changes (if they are not in the man page).

All done with the "install -Dm644 ... foo bar" you already have there commented.

They should land in something like,

/usr/share/doc/nyaa/CHANGELOG(or NEWS)
/usr/share/doc/nyaa/examples/xyz foo bar
.... ....

Working great the latest version !!!


 yt, ym, yp | Copy torrent/magnet/post link 

is supposed to copy where ? To the primary/secondary (X11) clipboard ?

What if I am not running a desktop, not even booting X ? Or using X but wants to copy to somewhere else ? Ex, xclip, xsel tool.

For example, a terminal multiplexer like tmux and I want to copy to its copy buffer. Or any other "clipboard" daemon.

Could this be added as an option like some other rust tools do ?

That is to let the user define the copy command itself. Ex,

COPY_COMMAND = " | tmux load-buffer - "


COPY_COMMAND = "some clipboard daemon "
