Here's a PKGBUILD implementing a few suggestions:

  • The git repo takes multiple GiB to clone. The size can be reduced to a couple MiB by downloading the files directly using the raw links. A couple GitHub API calls can set up the pkgver.
    • Separate _pkgver variable is needed because pkgver is updated after files are downloaded, leading to version mismatch.
  • There's a new package containing the variable fonts, so they can be dropped from this one. (ttf-material-symbols-git)
  • Even though the font extensions are different, the two sets are not drop-in replacements for each other. Makes more sense to keep them together in one package. (Example PKGBUILD uses ttf-, but might make sense to use otf-, fonts-, or material-icons-fonts-git.
  • The classic fonts are no longer updated (as frequently). To avoid pointless rebuilds, pkgver can follow only the commits that update the font files.
  • Apache is a standard license, so the license file doesn't have to be installed.
  • Maybe other details I forgot to mention.

@alexif fixed, thanks for reporting.

There's a typo in the string interpolation of the OTF package's install command: the $ sign should be outside the braces.

I added variable fonts to the ttf package.

Please add fonts in the variablefont folder containing the new "Material Symbols" fonts.

Could we have an update, the versioning has changed for this project it seems.

Change dependencies in PKGBUILD from xorg-font-utils to xorg-mkfontscale and xorg-mkfontdir as xorg-font-utils package was removed recently.
