@caleb Rust is no longer needed to build this project. Copying sway should be sufficient for the PKGBUILD.

Hey guys (including @Hi-Angel and @timidger). I'm actually having trouble figuring out how all the pieces should go together here. I added an AUR package for the awesome fork now required as a client, and posted some in-process work on this package. If anybody knows what pieces exactly are required to build this properly?

The Rust code should compile on the latest stable, no nightly Rust required.

Well, for me meson build and ninja -C build worked fine until the last stage, where rust code gets built. Then I got a bunch of errors: to resolve them, I think, you gonna need nightly rust toolchain, for example rustup toolchain install nightly.

Sorry, unfortunately I didn't manage to check last one because my "nightly" is pretty outdated, and my rustup got into some odd state where rutsup update fails. I was advised to report a bug for that on #rust IRC, which I did.

Hey guys, I've worked on this a little but haven't gotten everything together yet with the new build system. If anybody else is working on it (or wants to) please be in touch here!

Looks broken. It has wlc in dependencies, whilst upstream are using wlroots instead. In addition, the patch it tries to apply fails.

Yes it should be added, but note that the git version is currently unusable. Use the other aur package.

way-cooler.desktop does not exist in the git repo any more.

Maybe we should add it as a source file:

Package fails to build because of uninitialized git submodules:

error: failed to load source for a dependency on wlroots

Caused by: Unable to update file:///home/martynas/.cache/yay/way-cooler-git/src/way-cooler-git/wlroots-rs

@vinipsmaker way-cooler now has git submodules
