Yesterday I stumbled accross paru that is a AUR helper for #archlinux. It is really nice to see that #Rust/#Rustlang created a wave of modern #CLI tools with a modern touch. Other examples are #starship, #nushell, #ripgrep, #bat, #delta...Thanks to the whole #Rust community.
Have a look at paru: https://github.com/morganamilo/paru
@schrieveslaach Ah, I haven't really used nushell much, that's the one that kind of works like powershell with tabular responses right? I'm kind of happy with zsh this far :)
@sotolf you are right. You can even generate charts with it. Have a look: https://www.nushell.sh/blog/2020-10-13-nushell_0_21.html
@schrieveslaach Yeah, I've been using paru as my AUR helper for about a month now, it's a great one :)
@schrieveslaach Have been using RUA for a while, it's fast and straightforward but the prompts are SOOO annoying.
/me goes to look at paru
@bhart I never used rua. Before paru I used pacaur because it is a slim CLI tool and has a similar user experience compared to pacman (even if pacaur is deprecated). For me paru is a fresh and modern alternative to pacaur.
