Please don't flag this package as out-of-date if the new release is a pre-release. YakYak creates pre-releases for testing with the same release version as the final release will have, which would cause problems with the package SHA sums and break the package if I published them. The pre-releases have the "pre-release" badge on GitHub. Wait for the final release before flagging.

I am editing the PKGBUILD on aurget to update electron to 1.4
Works fine for me

kuenx commented on 2016-09-20 13:36

@gdamjan: YakYak uses Electron 1.2 that's why I'm not using the electron package from community. But in theory 1.4 should be backwards compatible so it might not be a bad idea to use the package from the community repo.

now that electron 1.4 is in community, maybe yakyak can be made to use that one?

OK. I have uninstalled the older version and instead of upgrading I've just installed from scratch. Now installed with success, and it's working.

Build is failing for me (1.3.2-1).

terminal output:

Anyone else getting build failures? I haven't been able to install for a couple weeks.

I've updated the PKGBUILD with the new Electron download path. The current version 1.3.0 is not outdated. Version 1.3.1 is a pre-release and contents are still going to change.

Please update the pkgbuild

Suggestion: Update PKGBUILD to reflect this HTTP 301.

gdamjan commented on 2016-07-30 14:17

it seems that even if I change _electron_version to 1.3.1 in the PKBUILD, the build process still downloads it again
