It works with electron2

Doesn't work with current (4.1.1) electron. Probably switch to branch might fix that.

add npm to make depends

Consider using this patch to fix tray functionality on arch.

A debian specific check is done in the js code to check that libappindicator1 is installed which always fails on non-debian systems. This patch simply bypasses the check.

If libnotify isn't installed, then the webtorrent window will close without killing the process, but it's already a dependency of the electron package, so it's not an issue.

im having issues with this pkg on gnome
please remove the Path= lines from webtorrent-desktop.desktop, and change the second line of the webtorrent-desktop script to:

exec electron /usr/lib/webtorrent-desktop "$@"

please update the PKGBUILD to this

it downloads elctron from repos and has the 18 version

oh my, it also downloads electron armv7,

electron is now in community, maybe this package can depend and use it?
