• Packer


    Hi.

    It’s just my suggestion but you should add packer to your repo. Some users like packer

  • Well, we already have yaourt in our repos, which is more generally known and does the same thing

    If you could tell me why we should have this one too in your opinion we could start a debate to include it.

    Here it is a Quick Comparison Table of every AUR helper

  • I was debating this myself and ended up installing both Packer and Yaourt. When I was still new in Arch, I like Packer because it is fast and easier to remember the name than Yaourt but recently I often use Yaourt because it does better job and seems like the speed was about the same either. I also use Aura once as suggested by a friend, but since there is pacmanxg4 that requires Yaourt to be installed, I had to keep both. Now I am using Aura in terminal and had kept Yaourt for pacmanxg4 purpose.

    So, I still vote Yaourt for me, for wide general support.

    :/
