@madskjeldgaard That's sadly not possible (or desirable) for a number of reasons. That would mean that updating this package would:

a. Figure out which user is running sudo pacman. b. Run sudo -Hu "$user_that_invoked_pacman" yabridgectl sync.

While you'd probably always want to rerun yabridgectl sync after updating yabridge, there's no precedent for a package that runs a command as a regular user (or specifically, the user updating yabridge) after updating that package, and that sounds like a bad idea to do by default. It would be possible to set up a pacman hook to do that yourself though, since you can do whatever you want on your system. Maybe I should publish such a hook somewhere.

Hi Robbert Thanks for this awesome program and package. I was wondering if it would be a nice idea to have a post update hook to run yabridgectl sync, since that seems to be needed after each update anyway? Just a suggestion. Thanks!
