Is nodejs-lts-dubnium the exact make requirement, or just nodejs can do?

… edit: seems to work fine with nodejs

This doesn't seem to build for me.

info "fsevents@1.2.4" is an optional dependency and failed compatibility check. Excluding it from installation.

Doesn't build in a chroot for me builds fine otherwise.

Actually the best way to build this is to not export the GOPATH at all as go will default to using modules outside of the GOPATH which will be entirely deprecated in the next few releases.

Ideally we would be using their official Makefile but there are a number of subtle issue with it that I'm working through.

You need to add GO111MODULE=on in build() function before go install... because chronograf now uses go modules. Have a look at the Makefile.

go-bindata should be added as builddep

This package now installs the canned dashboards that ship with chronograf. They are installed to /usr/share/chronograf/canned/.

I started building package I maintain in a clean chroot and found that python2 is required in the build process so I added it to the build dependencies. Just a heads up.

The update to corrects the issues with the PKGBUILD that were described in my previous comment below.

I also removed the unset LDFLAGS line in build() as this was a workaround for a build issue that has now been fixed upstream.

A few issues:

  • This PKGBUILD does not specify a source array and instead uses go get to install the necessary source repo. As a result this doesn't allow makepkg to check out the proper version. So regardless of the pkgver this installs the bleeding edge git version. If that is your intention the pkgname should be chronograf-git. Otherwise you should use a source array like this instead: source=("git+$pkgver")

  • The systemd service assumes there will be a user named "chronograf". Without this user the service fails to start. The canonical way to create a system user is using systemd-sysusers. See man sysusers.d. Also check out how the other InfluxData AUR packages handle this.

  • It is not necessary to specify dependencies that are in the 'base' group. That dependency is assumed, and the 'base-devel' group is assumed during build. So it is not useful to specify the 'glibc' dependency.

I have published fixes for the above here: Please feel free to pull these changes.

I'm interested in being a co-maintainer, so if you would like some help with this package, please add me.

Thank you for the quick fix. InfluxData is now aware of this issue and a fix has been proposed.
