Today, I would like to post about the highest vote AUR package for Arch Linux, that is “yaourt“. This is not an application like others, but it is my favourite utility. “pacman” the package manager of Arch Linux only works for the core, extra, and community packages, but not AUR packages.
Meaning that, “yaourt” can solve 3 problems: 1) Easily download the AUR PKGBUILD, then build and install; 2) install the packages for dependencies; 3) update or upgrade the installed AUR packages.
As an extra feature, yaourt produces colour output, it is easier for the user to read the packages information.
If you are an Arch Linux user, surely “yaourt” is what you need.
