If you want to install PyMuPDF from wheel instead of building from source, here is PKGBUILD.

Version 1.18.1 can also be build with libmupdf from community repo :)

@m040601 Docs are included now, but I am not interested in creating PyMuPDF-Utilities-git package. If you want a package for that, maybe you can make it yourself.

@zoe No, the author of PyMuPDF made some modifications to MuPDF, and PyMuPDF does not build without them. That's why I create libmupdf-pymupdf package. See this issue.

Please, replace make-dependence "libmupdf-pymupdf" by "libmupdf", because libmupdf is available in [community], which it is better than in [AUR] and libmupdf-pymupdf[AUR] just provides libmupdf.

Thank you.

Thank you cges30901 for all the work packaging this extremely usefull tool (and the mamoth dependency

I have a request for an additional package.

I was looking for a cli pdf replacement tool for pdftk (java dependency) and stapler(depends on python-pypdf2 unmaintained). Pymupdf has everything and more !!! But it's a library not a ready made cli tool. This arch package "python-pymupdf" also doesnt include any extra docs. Digging further on their website one finds:

I. The wiki A treasure trove of well maintained tips help and information.

II. PyMuPDF-Utilities, an additional repo of the same authors,

Demos, examples and utilities using PyMuPDF

This repository contains demos, examples and for using PyMuPDF
in the respective folders.

I, like many others, am an end user, not a developer and have only very rude python skills. I know I can just git clone their examples to study them and learn more about it.

But since it's such a well maintained repo (and wiki). So I would like to ask you if you could create:

I. Capture their documentation and wiki

As they say,

Our documentation, written using Sphinx, is available in various formats 
from the following sources. It currently is a combination of a reference guide 
and a user manual. For a quick start look at the tutorial and the recipes chapters.

You can view it online at Read the Docs. 
This site also provides download options for zipped HTML and PDF.
Find a Windows help file here.

either by an additional python-pymupdf-docs AUR package or by modifying the current one. In any case, this should inclued both their docs and the wiki. Stuff that would end up in /usr/share/docs/python-pymupdf/ etc.

II. an additional AUR package:


This should be very a very simple package. Just git clone and install it in /usr/share/pymupdf-utilities and /usr/share/doc/pymupdf-utilities.

Thanks in advance

@cges30901 No big deal. Thanks for fixing it ☺️

@RoestVrijStaal Sorry, I forgot to update SRCINFO after changing dependency. Already fixed now. Thanks for your comment!

Why is the maximum version of the libmupdf dependency <1.17 while on the Github page it's stated that it's compatible with 1.17.*?

I get breakage when attempting to upgrade this package, because libmupdf in AUR is 1.17.0-1.
