You can remove most packages from makedepends. Only with makedepends=('yarn' 'node-gyp'), in a clean chroot environment, the app was built successfully.

With both Markdown extensions packaged, you get two "preview" icons in the tab header for markdown files, one of which does not work, and a log message about initialization failure of the extension Markdown Language Features (built-in):

n.Window.registerCustomEditorProvider is not a function

I have therefore removed the line for vscode-builtin-markdown-language-features from package.json in my checkout. Now there is only one preview icon, and it works.

The upstream has released a deb package built by CI, is anyone interested in creating a theia-electron-bin package?

The symlink can also be dereferenced with cps -H option. Thus you do not need to specify an install command with strange (executable) permission flags:

Hi @Leon0402, You are right on the StartupWMClass, I changed it to electron. The failing build issue should also be eliminated, see

Hi, thanks for the package!

The theia-electron.desktop file is not quite correct or at least not matching the application. xprop showed that StartupWMClass should be electron rather than theia. Otherwise the window will not map correctly and it will use a fallback icon and not work properly with the task manager. I believe though, that actually the fix should rather be done somehwere else, so the WM Class is theia. But I don't know where this should be done.

Furthermore, the package doesn't work out of the box with the aur helper pikaur. The package seems to build on the fact that cache is preservered during build. Therfore: pikaur -S theia-electron --keepbuild was necessary

Okay, I updated the PKGBUILD

theia supports newer nodejs versions since 1.4.0, so the PKGBUILD should probably be updated:

Thanks, fixed

The LICENSE file is failing the validity check.
