How can i get a plaintext list of AUR descriptions?

I am writing a script involving AUR descriptions, but I can not seem to find a list of descriptions.

I found a list of packages here, but no
list of descriptions anywhere. I looked through the source code of the yay AUR helper, but did not find any links.

If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

I would prefer a text file i can just download with curl or wget if at all possible.

The AUR RPC does not lend itself to large scale requests such as querying all 66k AUR packages. Doing that will only get you rate-limited.

Obviously I'm not going to query all the packages at once, I was just looking for an API or a database to search through.
