@versusvoid oh, yeah. I've read about Electron packaging being a huge hassle. I hope I didn't sound harsh on my previous comment, I was just trying to understand the process a little bit better since all I know is how to updatepkgsums and change some things inside the PKGBUILD. I don't even understand how the noextract option in the context of this one.

But shouldn't a package like this make a symlink inside /usr/bin or print instructions after installation, anyway? And I believe you can request that the package is renamed or you can make a new one and request that this one is removed, probably on the mailing list. Thanks for the response and the quick update!

@efficientbug Electron apps packaging is stupid. Electron can generate complete package (.pkg.tar.xz) for pacman to install, but it's really annoying to use this mechanism in PKGBUILD (build and package by Electron, extract and let makepkg package it again). The only problem with current approach is naming: it should be reactotron-bin. But as a -bin package it's pretty natural to be placed in /opt. Moreover package provides usr/share/applications/reactotron-app.desktop for desktop launchers

I have tested the new version (2.17.1) by just changing the $pkgver and it seems to be working fine. However, I don't know if something changed from previous versions, but the PKGBUILD installs the application inside /opt/Reactotron and I have to run it from there... which seems wrong. I'd have to look into some other packages that use RPM and I'm quite amateur when it comes to writing PKGBUILDs, but I think this should be using another folder and it should have something inside /usr/bin?

I'm getting the shasum failing for the zip.

@Laouny There's a new build already in case you can update the PKGBUILD to align to latest linux app already :)
