Arch User Repositories

Since: v1.4.

After releasing to GitHub or GitLab, GoReleaser can generate and publish a PKGBUILD to an Arch User Repository.

Warning

Before going further on this, make sure to read AUR's Submission Guidelines.

This page describes the available options.

# .goreleaser.yaml
aurs:

    #
    # Note that since this integration does not create a PKGBUILD to build from
    # source, per Arch's guidelines.
    # That said, GoReleaser will enforce a `-bin` suffix if its not present.
    name: package-bin

    # Artifact IDs to filter for.
    #
    # Defaults to empty, which includes all artifacts.
    ids:
      - foo
      - bar

    # Setting this will prevent goreleaser to actually try to commit the updated
    # formula - instead, the formula file will be stored on the dist folder only,
    # leaving the responsibility of publishing it to the user.
    #
    # If set to auto, the release will not be uploaded to the AUR repo
    # in case there is an indicator for prerelease in the tag e.g. v1.0.0-rc1.
