yay: display number of AUR votes, like yaourt? [solved]

Hi,

I've transitioned from yaourt to yay a few months back. I'd like to know if yay can display the number of AUR votes for packages coming from AUR. Yaourt used to be able to do that. The number of votes (next to the package name) is very useful to know which package to install when a search matches multiple results.
I searched yay's man pages but couldn't find any option for that.

Cheers

Re: yay: display number of AUR votes, like yaourt? [solved]

yay man page wrote:

PERMANENT CONFIGURATION SETTINGS
...
--sortby <votes|popularity|id|baseid|name|base|submitted|modified>

Sort AUR results by a specific field during search.

Not sure if/how the number of votes are actually displayed in yay's results as I don't use it, but you can apparently sort the list by votes.

Yes @a821 is correct, that's the number of votes, and the decimal number to the right is the popularity.

Ah, ok...

Sorry I missed that, somehow I took that for a version number. I wasn't careful.

Thanks!
