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.

@gusbemacbe, you can remove the lines that end with .desktop from the PKGBUILD.

Hello @dcelasun!

I would like to exclude .desktop files from PKGBUILD, so I have already them in ~/.local/share/applications/. How?

@ShayBox the problem with that is I can't test every single nightly build Microsoft pushes. I don't think they do it either, that's why insiders builds are always provided as-is without guarantees.

If I had a script that automatically updated this package, I wouldn't know if it even worked correctly! Instead, what I do is manually run a build once every month or so and publish to AUR if it works fine. This, by the way, is how most *-git packages on AUR are maintained.

I understand your problem, I really do. But I don't think there is an easy solution beyond what we already have.

Oh, and:

but the aur is really meant to use incrementing version numbers

Yes, and this package does that. It just isn't automatic.

I realize this is using the vscode insiders build number, but the aur is really meant to use incrementing version numbers, as the package won't update unless it happens to have a higher number than whats locally installed, sure you could manually reinstall it to force it but that's not a good solution to the problem.

Also for packages that always build the latest commit, they should be automatically updating the version number when a commit is made so everyone that uses the package gets the update with their normal updates rather than having to wait for you to bump the number manually or reinstall it manually.

TLDR: It fails at the time of installing

The download time has significantly increased and I keep getting ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check! when it tries to validate the sha256sums.

Visual Studio Code now supports a URI handler. For this package, use xdg-open vscode-insiders://file/etc/pacman.conf.
