powerpill depends on python3-xcpf
python3-xcpf depends on python3-memoizedb

makepkg does not automatically resolve dependencies when installing AUR packages, but pacman will not let you install a package without them unless you explicitly disable dependency checks. You must have disabled dependency checks if you were able to install powerpill without python3-memoizedb.

There are AUR helpers to automate dependency resolution, but until you figure out what you did I would recommend sticking to manual installation.

I have installed the packaged but along with it I didn't get `python3-memoizedb`
I had to install this package manually from AUR ...

Powerpill depends on python3-xcpf, which in turn depends on python-xdg. If you have installed the package correctly then the dependencies should be satisfied.

You should never use pip to satisfy dependencies of pacman packages.

This package depends on pyXDG, but it was not listed in the dependencies.
sudo pip install pyXDG

adding xyne's repos fixed everything after a `pacman -Syu`, powerpill is truly astounding on gigabit fiber

Python was upgraded from version 3.5 to 3.6. You have to rebuild all of your Python AUR packages to work with the new version. If you don't want to rebuild powerpill and its dependencies, you can use the repo on my site:

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pm2ml'

recently I've been getting the above when attempting to use powerpill (I think first occurrence was maybe Monday that I noticed)

It doesn't directly depend on python3-memoizedb. Some of its dependencies do, but those already specify python3-memoizedb in their respective dependencies arrays.

please add dependency python3-memoizedb

Powerpill strictly interprets the SigLevel directives in pacman.conf. Adjust them accordingly. The official repos do not provide database signatures so they should be set to "PackageRequired".
