IMPORTANT: This package always installs the latest insider build (see pkgver() function), so if you want daily updates, just run "makepkg -si" everyday and it will update. I won't be updating pkgver every single day.

@idoit seems like your AUR helper doesn't run the pkgver function before comparing versions. That's not really a problem with this package, you should report it to yay.

Hi, pkgver is set as fixed and it's outdated. As a result, even though when I installed this package with YAY for first time, it downloads the latest vscode insiders version, it fails to see that a newer version is available. In fact it says:

:: Searching AUR for updates... -> visual-studio-code-insiders: local (1602804055-1) is newer than AUR (1600675246-1

Can you make it update regularly? Thanks.

@sanchith thanks, I've updated the package.

@dcelasun Just a heads up, they've changed the package names of x64 packages, it's now of the format: code-insider-x64-1599873150.tar.gz. I had to change the sed script from

sed 's/code-insider-//g'


sed 's/code-insider-x64-//g'

in the pkgver() function for 64-bit systems.

@sjq fixed, thanks!

This package will first download the old version of vscode file, then update the pkgvar!! See the link below for more detail.@fpigeonjr @dcelasun @dufferZafar

To solve this, try to use $(pkgvar) instead of ${pkgvar} in the source, this will make it always call pkgvar() and go to download the latest version of the package. @dcelasun

thanks @dcelasun! That worked for me. Thanks for your guidance.

@fpigeonjr I'm not familiar with yay but I imagine it's having trouble with the pkgver() function. Try downloading the tarball and installing manually with makepkg -si.

I installed this package using :

yay -S visual-studio-code-insiders

and is working fine but the program tells me I need to update.

When I run yay -Syu it doesn't update?

How do I update this package?
