Hi, I've found one more thing that you may wish to consider:

sed "s/\/var\/www\/turtl\/server/usr\/share\/webapps\/turtl/g" results in the creation of the string usr/share/webapps/turtl, which works fine when turtl-server is launched using systemd, but causes errors when the server is launched from anywhere except /, as the server is trying to search for plugins in a usr folder in the current directory.

If the command was changed to:

sed "s/\/var\/www\/turtl\/server/\/usr\/share\/webapps\/turtl/g" with an extra breaking \/, it will result in the correct string /usr/share/webapps/turtl which allows the server to be successfully launched from any directory (like my turtl-core-rs buildscript does).

(EDIT: Fix Markdown formatting errors) (EDIT 2: REALLY fix Markdown formatting errors)

Hi @neoninteger, it's not confusing at all. Done!

Hi Owen, thank you for incorporating my feedback (I don't have much more experience with AUR packages than you do, I'm really just going off of what I've seen elsewhere :D)

One thing that I should have been more clear about is with the provide and conflict variables - I believe both need to be specified.

The conflicts variable is a list of packages that cannot be installed at the same time as this one, so a hypothetical turtl-server package could not be installed at the same time as turtl-server-git.

The provides variable allows pacman to accept alternate packages when they are listed as dependencies. So if I listed turtl-server as a dependency of my project, makepkg and pacman would proceed with installation if either turtl-server, turtl-server-git or any other package with provides=('turtl-server') was installed prior.

Sorry for the confusion!

@neoninteger It's done, I've also added the keywords of turtl (plus 'server')

Hi @neoninteger, thank you for your comment! This is my first AUR package and I really appreciate the feedback.

I'll fix those erros ASAP. Tell me if you have any other suggestions :)

Hi Owen, thank you for providing this package, I have been able to successfully use it to run the test suite for Turtl's core-rs module.

There are a few things that I noticed while using this package that may be worth considering:

  • The scripts/ directory is installed with permissions 644 - this should be 755 or some other form that doesn't require manually performing chmod +x in order to run files in this directory (specifically init-db.sh)
  • I feel that this package should provide/conflict with turtl-server so that in the future when the server eventually has a versioned release, that release version can be provided as its own package that cannot be installed at the same time as turtl-server-git, but its up to you.

Thanks again for making this package!
