Make sure your npm is up to date or it will crash with an error while compiling.

Also, I wouldn't trust that ArchlinuxCN repository, or any browser or software from China for that matter.

Despite the about page saying it's still .727, it is the latest release. Looks like they forgot to update package.json before making the github release.

Brave is now in ArchlinuxCN repository. See

for details. ArchlinuxCN has a bot who automatically follows the latest tag in the github repo for Brave to guarantee the package to be up-to-date.

Also, since brave is updating very quickly, you can take a look at to see how to always update to the latest version.

Updating npm to 6 did the trick: sudo npm i -g npm

I added a workaround in the meantime. I don't much like it but I also don't feel like mucking about with git when building using this package, that's what brave-git is for.

The package should build now, and has been updated. Thanks for the ping.

Hi, any news for this package ? Thanks for your work

I see ... then, there is no other option but to fix that issue #12667

I would like to avoid that, that tarball looks to be a built binary, which is what brave-bin is for.

brave-git works for me. I'll try to fix this package and provide with a patch. The main idea is build from Brave.tar.bz2 instead of the src tarball. What do you think?

As a heads up to:



sha512sums=("6d44be41542f4d21174bf8cb38e4352af997ab4177788b48d4090102891f5cb49d22a25dfc0f55816d3b63a53cf86efa26c4748b4e461a27bd82557144b3da2f") md5sums=('bbdabb80c4a25a0d16f6d70feafe8625')

build() and package() need to change accordingly.

This package currently does not build from a source tarball. Please use brave-bin or brave-git in the meantime. Not sure when this started happening, as it succeeds if it's run from within a git repo, which it always happened to be for me.
