@viperpaulo: changed versioning to mirror what appears to be the proper format based on other "-git" packages here in the aur.

Please note that the new version string may cause issues with currently installed versions, I found it best to just remove my installed package and run yaourt fresh. This kept my settings just fine, and worked without problems.

Also fixed an issue with how gulp.js was being run that caused build failures.

I'll take up the package if noone else wants it, as I use yakyak regularly.

@viperpaulo I'm not quite sure how to manage that properly, the docs for are a little unclear on what to do specifically there. I haven't been using yakyak for quite a while, so I'm not really testing it either. If you got the time and resources, I'd be happy to see you(or anyone else for that matter) to maintain this package.

Thanks for this package :)
Is it possible to upload a new PKGBUILD with a version given by the pkgver() function? Because the version 1-4 of the package is conflicting with AUR helpers (especially yaourt) which consider version 1-4 newer than the version given by pkgver(), v1.2.0.r657.gf2cfa6c-1 for example. And it's a bit annoying ;p

Thanks in advance!

PS: Also .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD doesn't seem to have the same value for the pkgrel...

I'm trying to install yakyak and whenever it tries to build I get the error:

node: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build yakyak-git.

What can I do about this? Thanks.

@reefland: The electron version was too old, just pushed a new PKGBUILD with the newer version. Seems to work again.

@LoopBack: Sorry, that was my fault. The electron version that the -git package used was way too old. I replaced it with a newer one, now it runs like it should.

yakyak works fine for me but yakyak-git gives me this error:
