Disowned, as I didn't have the time to maintain this properly.

FYI this package has a wrong version: the PKGBUILD contains 4.0.0-1 but after installing, the version is reported as 4.0.1-1

I've fixed the pkgver issue

can't install wscat pkgver() had a problem

Although it seems like pkgver variable should be declared anyway.

kstep commented on 2017-09-11 08:04

It's allowed. See for reference.

sorry for my late response.
your right, cloning and makepkg'ing works for me too - just checked
but building with pacaur doesn't:
the error message makes it sound like the PKGCONFIG has some misconfig. after looking in your PKGCONFIG I discovered you set the "pkgver" dynamically (via the function "pkgver()"). I've never seen it like this, so I changed it to "pkgver=1.0.1" and it built just fine.
but yea... seems kinda pacaur related. although I'm unsure about the rules for arch packages, is that dynamic "pkgver()-trick" allowed?

@f4bio, Just cloned, ran makepkg, and installed successfully. Do you have more detailed steps to reproduce your issue?

:: Installing wscat package(s)...
:: wscat package(s) failed to install.
:: ensure package version does not mismatch between .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD
:: ensure package name has a VCS suffix if this is a devel package

I think thats due to your pkgver(), it makes the PKGBUILDs version dynamic (I don't even know if thats allowed?) but .SRCINFOs verion is fixed
