pkgver function:

pkgver() { cd "$pkgname" ( set -o pipefail git describe --long 2>/dev/null | sed 's/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g' || printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)" ) }

I think you forgot the pkgver function :) Thanks for packaging! Latest git seems to work with this PKGBUILD and

...How do you post code blocks here?

This package is also missing git as a build dependency.

As for the fmt thing, I think you could add a fmt 4.1.0 package to the AUR if you wanted.

Waybar is still in the very early stages of development. The list of dependencies therefore tends to grow rapidly, so that the AUR package will often have missing dependencies.

Because Waybar depends on fmtlib 4.1.0 and this version is unavailable on archlinux repositories, the AUR package patch the to build and link statically fmtlib to the binary. The slightest change of the on the upstream will therefore cause the build to fail until I'll release the according

I'm trying to keep track of the upstream, but this package will often be out-of-date. One generic way to fix the build is to install an earlier version of Waybar for which the AUR package has been designed, until I fix it. You just need, in the PKGBUILD, to comment the current git source, and uncomment the alternative one. Example for r70.8d5b61a9-2:

< # source=("${pkgname}::git://"
< source=("${pkgname}::git://"
> source=("${pkgname}::git://"
> # source=("${pkgname}::git://"

Also missing libpulse as a dependency.
