This depends or make depends on python-poetry.

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'poetry.masonry'

ERROR Backend 'poetry.masonry.api' is not available.

When I installed python-poetry, the above error disappeared.

Apply this patch to build while upstream #3 remains unresolved. With that patch saved as poetry-core.patch, simply add patch -Np1 < ../poetry-core.patch to prepare().

Hi! I do not have any problems with the current upstream, so there's no immediate request on my end to switch. Thanks for maintaining this.

Thanks for your comment, meanjollies. I forgot to regenerate the .SRCINFO after my last update in May. I just did so.

As for switching the upstream to the newly maintained version -- I recently inherited this package after it was dropped from the community repository and decided to keep using the unmaintained upstream version until I'm able to do a comprehensive review of the differences between the two and/or someone complained about missing or broken functionality. I just haven't had time to do that review yet.

Do you have any problems with the current upstream? If so I would be compelled to expedite the change, but if not I'm going to leave it this way for a while longer. I'm happy to accommodate you if you're having an issue with something specific.

Hey! Would you be able to generate and push a new .SRCINFO? The current one is outdated/incorrect, as it references pkgrel 10. You may also want to switch the upstream to, since that is the newly maintained version (as noted in the original repo).

Agreed dreieck, thanks for the feedback. I updated the PKGBUILD.

I think you should switch to using python -m build and python -m installer instead of invoking directly:

/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/setuptools/_distutils/ SetuptoolsDeprecationWarning: install is deprecated.

        Please avoid running ```` directly.
        Instead, use pypa/build, pypa/installer, pypa/build or
        other standards-based tools.

        See for details.


e.g. (just the idea, not tested with your package):

build() {
  python -m build --wheel --no-isolation
  # maybe build documentation, ...

package() {
  python -m installer --destdir="$pkgdir" --compile-bytecode=2 dist/*.whl
  # Maybe install documentation, license, ...

This package was recently removed from the community repository and is required by a package I regularly use. In the absence of a maintainer, I am assuming that role.

The PKGBUILD was broken at the time of AUR migration. I've updated the following information (see git history for full details of changes):

  • check(): A pytest failure I've yet to determine the root cause of is prohibiting success of the dependency check function of this PKGBUILD. I've temporarily removed this function until I can determine the cause and notify the remote maintainer.

NOTE: This package uses an archived version of terminaltables. The maintained version can be found at I will consider updating to the forked version in the future after I've determined the differences (if any).
