As I've mentioned in this comment it's time to deprecated this package then.

Now people can use and just change the settings to use the dark theme.

Are you sure yarn should be called before entering scrdir?

Yes, I'm sure. I've tested the package install by running the command below (it completely removes the package and installs again) and it's working fine.

yay -R whatsapp-nativefier-dark
rm -rf ~/.cache/yay/whatsapp-nativefier-dark
yay -S whatsapp-nativefier-dark

BTW, why use yarn and a downloaded nativifier? The nativifier from the repo's works just fine for building this package.

See this comment:

Don't think it's related to some lockfile tbh. The error message states that the file ../node_modules/.bin/nativefier is not found, and there is indeed no such file above the scrdir directory. There is a node_modules folder in scrdir, but it's empty.

Are you sure yarn should be called before entering scrdir? That might be causing the lockfile warning.

Hi, Now I have dark theme (0.20200221002211-4).

The system tray icon behavior in Manjaro KDE also changed with the recent update. However, the previous one was better. There, left-clicking on the icon would raise or lower the application window (lower to the tray). Now, left click does nothing and right click shows the menu of "Whatsapp" and "Quit". Is there a way to have that behavior again?

That's strange rien333.

This message "info No lockfile found" indicates that the file yarn.lock is missing so I suppose it's some issue with cache.

Could you try something like this?

rm -rf /home/rw/.cache/yay/whatsapp-nativefier-dark
yay -S whatsapp-nativefier-dark

Hi brody.

I was able to build the package but have no dark theme applied.

While I investigate the problem, I've just released a new version with nativefier version fixed at 7.7.1.

testbird71, this new release (0.20200221002211-4) should fix the problem.

testbird71 commented on 2020-03-18 15:34

after the update today, i have no dark theme

brody commented on 2020-03-18 14:45

The package is not buildable since the nodejs-nativefier has been updated to version 8.0.4.

testbird71 commented on 2020-03-13 15:14
