Hi Farzat!

I have made the changes you indicated and added you as co-maintainer.

This package the package directly through npm.

This goes against the guidelines for node.js packages found here:

Here is a version I modified to be closer to the guidelines:

# Maintainer: Arturo Penen <>
pkgdesc="Netcat-like utility for WebSockets"
arch=("x86_64" "i686")

package() {
    npm install -g --cache "${srcdir}/npm-cache" --prefix "${pkgdir}/usr" "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}.tgz"

    # npm gives ownership of ALL FILES to build user
    chown -R root:root "${pkgdir}"

Disowned, as I didn't have the time to maintain this properly.

FYI this package has a wrong version: the PKGBUILD contains 4.0.0-1 but after installing, the version is reported as 4.0.1-1

I've fixed the pkgver issue

can't install wscat pkgver() had a problem

Although it seems like pkgver variable should be declared anyway.

It's allowed. See for reference.
