To everyone,

Don't forget to cast a vote for this tool, With enough votes this might become an official Arch package.

There are currently 3 PKGBUILD's, "ov", "ov-bin" and "ov-git".


Please collaborate to avoid unnecessary reduplicate work.

Also the author, a japanese guy, has a lot more very interesting related tools,

There is even an interesting "ovcs",

A client/server version of Terminal Pager ov.

  • By combining terminal pager with client/server and tmux, it became the strongest SQL client

The ov-git package is using

-ldflags="-linkmode=external -X main.Version=$_pkgver -X main.Revision=$_pkgrev"

to set versions that will appear like this:

$ ov --version
ov version v0.32.0 rev:23db449

ov --version is not showing the correct value. Build misconfiguration?

$ ov --version
ov version dev rev:HEAD

$ pacman -Q ov
ov 0.32.0-1

Thanks for the link about glibc, that makes sense. :)

@kseistrup Thank you for the feedback. Will update to install the license.

The explicit dependency on glibc, however, is not necessary according to

In some cases this is not necessary and may or may not be listed, for example glibc cannot be uninstalled as every system needs some C library

Thanks for packaging ov.

It is released under the MIT license, which should be copied to /usr/share/licenses/ov/.

I believe it is dependend on glibc.
