Void User Template Repository


I just made a P.O.C Void User repository helper. the source is here: https://github.com/jcjordyn130/vur, and the templates are stored at https://github.com/jcjordyn130/vur-templates

Void User Repository
"User-contrib" repo/wiki: Is there one? Should there be?

I haven’t really made the server backend yet.


@jcjordyn120 what do you mean with “P.O.C” ?? I have never seen this acronym before…

Could you explain what is it and how to use it ? Thanks.

Your blog is interesting too… :stars:


P.O.C = Proof of concept.
it’s like a POC aur for void. and you install packages like ./helper.py -i android-studio (for example).

Looks like good alternative to abandoned void-packages-bleeding-edge repo. But it will be better if you will add packages with release version to void-packages repository.


They don’t accept git packages, oh and I needed a place to host android-studio. (as I’m a android dev.)

I think, the better solution would be a script which converts PKGBUILD’s to Void templates.

After conversion you can check it, test it and add to Void repository.


No, we have quality standards.


@mocambo no, no… :sushing_face: you will make Duncaen angry.

:grin: I’m joking, of course.

But seriously: I spent a lot of time digging through the g̶a̶r̶b̶a̶g̶e̶ AUR to find new programs to be proposed to Void, and from my little experience I can tell that convert PKGBUILD to template is quite easy, actually.
I don’t think we need a script to do that, just my opinion.

I’m not really sure what such a script would do anyway. You can already do a lot with xnew and sed if you know the version numbers and other metadata.
