Pamac CLI

#202

Hi, with pamac 7.3.0 there are new features in cli:

  • the cli honors pamac preferences by default so if you enabled AUR no need to add --aur option
  • if AUR support is enabled, checkupdates action now also tells you the AUR packages marked as out of date
  • if AUR support is enabled, search action now shows you results in databases and AUR at the same time

#203

Thanks for the updates!

Is adding support for update for *-git packages something you are considering?


#204

not sure it’s always good: sometimes too many results
add option -r for only repo if AUR enabled ?


#205

Oops, I totally forgot but YES it’s also a featured of v7.3.0:

  • use checkupdates --aur --devel options to see vcs packages updates

#206

On new installs with pamac-mirrorlist.timer enabled (it’s enabled by pamac), the mirror is likely changing every week. So -Syyu is probably the better default command unless the user knows her mirrorlist is not being updated regularly.


#207

Been playing around with pamac cli and love the checkupdates feature.
With pamac, what’s the difference with update and upgrade?
Which is the recommended one to use?
Thanks


#208

None. Both are synonyms for the exact same command.


#209

Thanks for the quick reply.
