On Friday I started a little project mainly just to get my hands dirty with TUI programming.
Since then it evolved quite quickly and I now take the opportunity to shamelessly advertise it on this forum
Maybe it’s useful for someone
The program is called pacseek.
It is a small TUI application that can help you finding and installing/removing packages.
It supports the regular Arch repositories as well as the AUR.
If you want to play around with it, you can install pacseek from the AUR:
While that is a little disappointing we’re only taking our your server and not the whole AUR, I’m going to give it a spin. It looks interesting, and useful if I don’t want to log onto the website like I usually do to search. Thanks!
Just wondering which icon to use. Any suggestions? “terminal” ?
It’s a “starts with” search basically. I guess you’d want “contains” instead ?
I pretty much did that because then I can utilize the “suggest” type /rpc call.
(Which is way less resource intensive then the “search” one)
I’ll think about it… edit I’ll probably make that an option in the settings
