Hi, @mischka, thanks for your package!

I've forked your aur repo [1] and upgrade it to the last release (0.25.2). It seems to work without any issue.

Cheers, Roberto

I have a whole series of updates queued up for this to match the brave-bin refactoring I did, but I can't test them right now because some of the NPM packages aren't downloading. Does anybody know if this is a temporary condition or am I up against some problem that needs resolving in the build?

Edit: I posted all my commits to my Github mirror of this package, but I haven't posted it here yet because I can't confirm it builds. If anybody wants to look into this be my guest!

@shillshocked Do you have info about what npm version worked / didn't work? If a minimum version is required that should be noted in this build.

@heavysink There is a -git package for this in AUR. It is not acceptable to make normal release packages auto-update in the AUR. This package should not adopt that technique.

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.

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