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.

version 1.1.3 fixes an important bug.

A better solution would be to add it to optdepends since it isn't required to run Micro.

Just change line 10 to:
optdepends=('xclip: needed for copy/paste support')

@tahayassen Ok. I will do that soon.

Please add xclip as a dependency. It's pretty essential as copying & pasting doesn't work without it.

My another variant. It fully builds from sources instead of installing of pre-built binary:

The source was giving a 404 error.

I made an updated PKGBUILD here:

I changed the source to the latest stable tarballs from github, added sha256sum checks, and cleaned it up a bit. Updates should only require changing the pkgver as well as the sha256sum lines from now on.
