Should be fixed.

Hi, this currently creates a /usr/.crates2.json which I think is not needed.

Thanks, I've updated the PKGBUILD

Make sure that your sources are unique. Currently it's only the version string which conflicts with another source package on my system. You can do this:

@Svenstaro I'm sorry. I'm the idiot here. I've taken yet another look at the miniserve and just realized that I omitted the build() step. Apologies!

Thanks for the changes! However, I'm very sure my miniserve PKGBUILD issues the exact same cargo call to build the package from that you're now using as well. Otherwise it'd have to be called miniserve-bin (which does exist and does what you said).

@Svenstaro I've looked at the PKGBUILD of miniserve. It's fetching the binary generated during Travis job thus it's using the precompiled (or should I say - prebuilt?) binary.

Re: silicon package - I've updated the PKGBUILD. It now uses the recommended --release and --locked flags. Thanks for pointing this out.

miniserve does not use the precompiled binary but it reproducibly compiles its own binary. cargo-pkgbuild should be changed to use arch recommended practices.

@Svenstaro miniserve uses the precompiled binary. It's one of the ways of making AUR packages, however the preferred way IIRC is to compile them from the source code.

silicon follows the schema generated by cargo-pkgbuild. It's slightly different the proposed version from Arch wiki. I'll adjust it to the suggestions from the wiki.

This is not the proper way to build rust packages. You could look at this [0] for some inspiration.
