This is arson 2.0, the hot AUR search helper!
There is 3 functions of arson:
You can get arson 2 ways:
- As a Ruby gem gem install evaryont-arson --source http://gems.github.com
- Cloning the git repository git clone git://github.com/evaryont/arson.git
arson's default fall back action. If arson doesn't understand your parameters, it will search the AUR with them (after URL escaping them) and display the results to you, in color.
To download a package, pass
-d to arson. Any other arguments will be converted
into package names and arson will try to download a package with that exact
arson -d arson # Downloads the package "arson"
arson -d pacman color # Downloads the packages "pacman" and "color"
arson won't perform any clean up on the passed parameters, so (using the 2nd
example) arson will try to find the 'pacman' and 'color' packages while you
probably meant the 'pacman-color' package.
If you pass
-u to arson, it will search through the locally installed foreign
packages (as reported by
pacman -Qm) and return a list of possible updates
available in the AUR.
You can not pass anything or pass
--help to arson to get a quick summary of
