Former 'micro' was a binary as well, that's why it was merged into 'micro-bin'. The best way to build it from sources is to have a working golang environment already (e.x. GOPATHS exported, libraries etc.), otherwise setting this up from the beggining is a pain in the a*. Downloading 60MB of go package (300MB extracted) to compile binary less than 10MB? There is no interest for me to do it to be honest.

For all of you not willing to install binaries, the 'micro' package name is free to use, so everyone can adopt that package and maintain it. Feel free to do it, in a way you like it (i.e. from sources, no binary though).

micro-bin is what it is, a binary.

Package without -bin shouldn't be used for binary installation. This is blocking for installing on non-x86 architecture (like ArchLinuxARM/ALARM or ArchLinux MIPS). There is an ARM binary but don't know if it's ARMv6, ARMv7 or ARMv8. Micro is actively developed opensource software, there is no reason to remove open source compilation part.

Instruction for making it from source are here :

Guys, this package is getting merged into micro-bin package.

sukso96100 has disowned it because of lack of time for keeping it up to date.

He deserves all the credits for his work up to this date.

From now on new updates will appear in micro-bin package only. Please install it to be able to get them.

package updated, hope it's proper now

conflicts and provides bot should be arrays.

conflicts=('micro-git' 'micro' 'micro-nightly-bin')

haawda commented on 2017-10-20 15:04

This package is almost the same as micro-bin. Both install the binary. This package should build from source.

jtmb: It should _not_ provide itself. That makes no sense, as each package automatically provides itself.

redArch: 1.3.3 is the most recent stable release. Use micro-nightly or micro-git for 1.3.4

redArch commented on 2017-10-14 16:09

Are you gonna update this?

jtmb commented on 2017-10-06 00:43

would you mind adding provides(micro) to the PKGBUILD so other packages like micro-bin will properly conflict?

@nycko123 while the package is technically out of date, 1.3.1 has some serious issues that affect most Linux users, making micro practically unusable. So I don't think this package should be updated until 1.3.2 hopefully solves thoes issues.

See this bug report:
While the title suggests this happens through SSH, it actually always happens, even when using micro locally.

Please update with this 1.3.1 PKGBUILD

nycko123 commented on 2017-08-04 09:35

Please update with this 1.3.0 PKGBUILD
