As I understand it, Pacaur itself is Bash, just "built upon the well designed cower and expac C backends". Design decisions ended up being the problem (cower was redone to auracle), but neither are his projects, so I guess it was the Bash code: -> description link

Aurman = Python, Yay = Go and Trizen = Perl, so people probably just wanna have fun trying out different things:,, (click the line just below the "commits", "branches", etc. for languages used)

Why does everyone want to switch the AURHelper instead of forking this thing? I don't know C well, so I'm not able to do something like that.

Usign aurman, acording to wiki

It's the best alternative to pacaur. Both aurman and bauerbill are the only which comply with each characteristic. Bauerbill however has a different philosophy.

After using by more than a month, I recommend it.

pikaur is only available as a -git (i.e. random/uncontrolled) version from the AUR. No thanks.

Veras commented on 2018-03-16 23:08

I haven't tried out pikaur, but I'd recommend yay as an alternative to pacaur - it's perfect in practically every aspect that made me move to pacaur in the first place.

Too much for me :) pikaur = 1 package

Det commented on 2018-03-16 15:35

The "heavy" 29 perl packages are super small.

For those who want an AUR helper in development and don't want to install trizen (too heavy: 29 packages at home), you have pikaur-git that is inspired by pacaur, yaourt and yay.

Veras commented on 2018-03-06 04:32

The package still works fine.

mb1cnhqge7c5y5vs: Why would you want to try hard to use an unmaintained package? After that, it's just my opinion.
