This package was previously called vscodium-git. This is the latest release, building from git. The package vscodium-git is the very latest commit on the VSCodium branch.

@BrLi: As far as I know, this is the same build method as the vscodium repo uses. Keep in mind that this is not the same as vscode itself, but a stripped-from-all-telemetry open source version. If you want normal vscode, you need to install the code package. If you have any ideas on optimising the build process of Codium, please do tell.

Hi, is it possible that you switch to use the build method of vscode from official repo, that doesn't include the full binary of electron/chromium stack?

as the size would be much smaller.

@cedricroijakkers: Ok. I will try again but this time will remove vscodium-git before start building this package... Thanks for quick respond anyway.

@tyler19820201: I always use paru myself as an AUR helper, that seems to be a little quicker. But I've just tried it in pamac, and I've managed to build VSCodium just fine. It did take quite some time to git clone the Microsoft repository, but it finished in the end and worked fine. I can only recommend to just try it again. Occasionally I get some failure in building at a random step, but just running the build again then solves the issue. It should keep the downloaded files, so there is no need to re-clone everything.

Technically speaking, both vscodium and vscodium-git do the exact same build, just from another branch in git.

I was trying to install it from pamac but after 30 minutes trying the installation has been aborted & failed for some error. But vscodium-git 1.55.0.r0.gd8a91cf-1 has been succesfully installed in around 25 minutes...
