Wow, it looks like someone upstream started caring about this project again.

@needle8420 sorry for the delay. There is no need to ask me or anyone else to do this. You can submit and keep-up an AUR package yourself. Please take a look at

revel, please add this to aur ...


vanity address generator for tor onion v3 (ed25519) hidden services, similar to shallot

also feel free to suggest my benchmark code to upstream

revel, thx for your maintenance :-)

i only used microsoft-github, cos i could not find any other source. otherwise i would not trust MSGH.

onioncat seems too mature, to maintain a git package. 'it just works'

the changes i suggested affect the files in the github repo. is using svn commands. files src/.deps/*.Po are missing.

i fixed with

-define([svnversion], esyscmd([sh -c "echo -n $(( `svnversion | tr -d 'M'` + 1 ))"]))dnl
+define([svnversion], esyscmd([sh -c 'printf "%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"']))dnl

ps, aur translates ` [grave accent] to newline, had to use `. bug or feature?

@needle8420 many thanks for pointing out that the source files were no longer available at the usual location. I took an easy path and just reuploaded the files to github (forked repo). So, this aur package works again. However, from looking at the original github repository, I would bet this is the last version of this package which will be supported here. The changes you have suggested should rather go to the -svn version of this package (which probably should be renamed to -git as well). It looks like that aur package is currently unmaintained (orphaned), so please feel free to adopt and update it if you care enough.

... cos source archives are not accessible and svn repo is deprecated [1] and not accessible


maybe add around patching:

if [ "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)" == '8e7f6eb' ]
    # patch

[root@archerbuild ~]# ocat XXXXXXX.onion
sh: ifconfig: command not found

Seems that ocat needs ifconfig. Maybe net-tools should be added as a dependency?
