@masterkorp I kind of figured but I'm not sure how to resolve? Like I gather there's a partial file somewhere but I don't know where -- it's not in the local cache dir and it's not where I have makepkg configured (/opt/aur). Can't "find" the file anywhere on the filesystem.

EDIT: Never mind, it was in /opt/aur/sources. We're good on this part at least.

@project32 this is a curl download error, its when downloading the package from the github repo.

I'm having the same error as @gwenlune, excepting version is 1.0.170 and the initial byte position 9848724.

I'm not sure if this is actually an issue with the package or a problem with curl, as I'm not sure but my initial download might have halted. I however can't find any residual file in any of the usual places so I'm kinda stumped.

@annata83, just

# rm -r /usr/share/joplin/resources/app/node_modules/sqlite3/.vscode/

Whoa, still works! Ok, I'll save this optimization for later package updates:

# sed -i '/\[options\]/aNoExtract = /usr/share/joplin/resources/app/node_modules/sqlite3/.vscode/*' /etc/pacman.conf

Hi! For me it is not possible to install the pkg because of lack of space! I tried 3 times. The result was the same. After filling 1.7 GB in /tmp, the installation attempt finishes with a very long error message of this type:

cp: error writing '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-compx/aur-joplin/pkg/joplin/usr/share/joplin/swiftshader/': No space left on device
cp: error writing '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-compx/aur-joplin/pkg/joplin/usr/share/joplin/swiftshader/': No space left on device
cp: error writing '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-compx/aur-joplin/pkg/joplin/usr/share/joplin/v8_context_snapshot.bin': No space left on device
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build joplin.
==> Restart building joplin ? [y/N]
==> -------------------------------

Bizarre! The partition has 23 GB of free space. (I utilize Manjaro.)

NB I don't know if it's important, but I have installed electron4. Nevertheless, joplin install his electron client.

Other way to reduce the size of the package would be to use the package `electron4' I think. joplin comes with its own copy of electron (about 100M uncompressed), and that might not be needed.

Another possible space optimisation of the install would be to have joplin compress its sources into a .asar (some kind of tarball for electron); but having the javascript uncompressed on Linux is a choice made by the author of Joplin, so it might be needed, or it might not.

Last space optimisation I can think of would be to have two different packages, one for joplin-desktop and one for joplin-cli as I don't think they share ressources, I might be wrong.

Version 1.0.170 is damn big for such a simple app! 600MB uncompressed!

I wonder if it can be stripped down. Most prominent is /usr/share/joplin/resources/app/node_modules/sqlite3/.vscode. As I can guess from file path this is some kind of IDE internal cache and is not required. And it takes almost 150MB - 25% of installed app size!

UPD: I deleted /usr/share/joplin/resources/app/node_modules/sqlite3/.vscode and Joplin still works perfectly fine.
