NEW PACKAGE: aurscripts

I have made 3 small (but very useful) scripts to make my work as package contributor to AUR much more comfortable.
You can download these scripts directly from here: aurscripts-1.0.3.tar.gz, or you can download PKGBUILD from AUR.

These scripts are included:
· aurcreate - create clean packages prepared for upload to AUR
· aurdownload - download and extract packages from AUR
· aurupdate - update package versions (if specified) and md5sums

Re: NEW PACKAGE: aurscripts

I dont really see the use for aurdownload or update when you can just run aurbuild -s <pkg> or aurbuild -su .. tongue

Re: NEW PACKAGE: aurscripts

I guess the difference is that Mikos' scripts just download the PKGBUILD and related files whereas aurbuild downloads the files, creates the package, installs (or updates) it and removes the PKGBUILD, etc. afterwards.

Re: NEW PACKAGE: aurscripts

It is like smoon said - aurdownload just download and extract tarball with PKGBUILD (and related files) from AUR.

These tools are for package maintainers, not for regular users (like aurbuild is).

Re: NEW PACKAGE: aurscripts

Great scripts Mikos.  My wireless must be sucking, because I thought I posted on this last night.

But I see! smile
aurbuild and qpkg are written in Python, aurscripts - in bash. wink
I don't have python on my systems and don't want to install it (I think that all system scripts and utilities should be written in either bash or C - that's IMHO). So, guess which package I have chosen. wink

To Mikos: Thank you! smile

Re: NEW PACKAGE: aurscripts

I'll use aurdownload.  I actually skip using aurbuild alot now and just grab the tarball.  It's just easier...
