Oops I'm sorry I missed something important.

The git commands in pkgver() won't work because the package pulls the zip archive from Github instead of the actual repository. To make it work, the source array needs to be


and with that, all instances of cd (i.e. inside pkgver(), build() and package()) need to be changed to

cd "youtube_search"

Sorry, and thx for your quick response !

@Kr1ss Thanks for the heads up. I just updated the PKGBUILD. Should be all right now.

That's cool, thank you very much for all your contributions to that awesome project then ! (And for adding the provides/conflicts arrays of course :D)

I do also appreciate that you've introduced a pkgver() function with the latest update. I see that upstream is following a version scheme though, despite the fact that there are no official releases (yet?). If you're interested, you could dynamically integrate this version number in your package's version by grabbing it from, by doing something like :

pkgver() {
    cd youtube_search
    printf '%s.r%s.%s' \
    "$(grep version= | sed 's/^\s*version="\(.*\)".*/\1/')" \
    "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

The additional printf argument basically filters the plain version number out of this file. The current build's pkgver would then be 1.1.1.r31.e021809 rather than r31.e021809 - which is fine too, of course, I personally just like to use upstream versioning where it's possible.

Cheers !

@Kr1ss I would totally consider the change. I'm actually a contributor of playx and I made the PR to add youtube-search as a dependency due to some internal changes to the package.

Anyway, I have made the change to the PKGBUILD!

Hi @deepjyoti30, thx a lot for sharing this package !

One of my packages is playx-git, which depends on this one. I'm just stepping by to ask if you'd consider to add


to your PKGBUILD. This would give me the chance to depend on python-youtube-search (rather than ...-git). In case there will be an official youtube-search release at some point, users would be able to choose if they prefer python-youtube-search or ...-git as dependency.

Thx in advance, cheers !
