Is there a possibility to include multitail to a manjaro repository?
Its kinda handy.
(Yes I can install via AUR but I like to keep my system as clean as possible for stability reasons)
thx for the consideration.
I’m gonna guess if the whole beginning and end of the justification for why it should be in the repos is that one user says “its kinda handy” (and “I
can install it from the AUR, but cleanliness”) then its not very likely.
For anyone interested in some more information…
What is it in short?
MultiTail follows files in style, it is tail on steroids.
Can you elaborate on that?
MultiTail lets you view one or multiple files like the original tail program. The difference is that it creates multiple windows on your console (with ncurses). It can also monitor wildcards: if another file matching the wildcard has a more recent modification date, it will automatically switch to that file. That way you can, for example, monitor a complete directory of files. Merging of 2 or even more logfiles is possible. It can also use colors while displaying the logfiles (through regular expressions), for faster recognition of what is important and what not. It can also filter lines (again with regular expressions). It has interactive menus for editing given regular expressions and deleting and adding windows. One can also have windows with the output of shell scripts and other software. When viewing the output of external software, MultiTail can mimic the functionality of tools like ‘watch’ and such.

I’ll keep your kind suggestion for the next request
