You are free to report issues regarding the packaging here: be aware that sometimes the package will fail to build because of outdated upstream and updated dependency, which will require me some time to test and solve the problem; I do also have life stuff, packaging is a free-time activity.

Info regarding the package

The package uses the sources available at:

I am aware of the different clones and branches; I do still believe that this code is acceptable (not affected itself from malware).

As the nw.js toolchain provided by the PopcornTime team can not be proven as non-malware easily, this package uses the official nw.js toolchain provided here:

and uses for additional codecs the prebuilt FFmpeg library provided here:

In addition, the PKGBUILD won't point to the 0.3.10 Git reference but will also include important commits, for e.g. security reasons or providers changes.

Hi @B3l3tte, sorry for the huge delay, had issues setting up Arch on my new personal laptop.

I tried yesterday using a more recent commit and the build points out to the new commits. You can check the built revision via the information page on the bottom right.

You need to update the variable _commit_hash in the PKGBUILD in order to change revision.

Hello ItachiSan, I am wondering how i am supposed to tune the PKGBUILD to get the latest commits packaged ? Just changing the hash currently doesn't work, do you have any tips with the NWJS version and / or commits that broke the building process used by the current PKGBUILD ? Thanks

Regarding the ARM build, you may want to ask the PopcornTime team to build their NW.js with extra codecs for ARM also.

About Github, it seems up for me; what is exactly the error?

can't get the sources, github says invalid repo url

Ask to upstream I guess lol

Can this be ported over to Arch ARM? That would make Arch ARM the go to OS for raspberry Pi's guaranteed ;)

Removing out-of-date flag as I successfully built the package today from scratch.

Can't install at all. I think the URL for package source has been taken down by DMCA.

ItachiSan commented on 2020-05-05 17:16

@xolst and all: the Git repository is currently (2020-05-05) not available due to a DMCA.

The package should be working all fine if/after Github restores the repository visibility.

The software works now, I don't know if since the 16th the old version has encountered major issue, but I was used to work with this package and it always worked, anyway ty!
