@derek I never used yay because I prefer the way aurutils handles things, even though it's a little complicated. But I like that it doesn't abstract away the process of compiling and packaging things from the AUR and doesn't "replace" pacman.
@derek It seems like every so often, a new aur helper is crowned as the new favorite. Yaourt, Pacour, Aurman, and then Yay. Why are we changing this time? What's so special about Paru?
@flvc1 Pacman uses the official Arch repositories while yay uses the AUR.
@Nikolas yay uses both arch/manjaro repos and aur
@flvc1 You're not using all of Arch if you don't use an AUR helper, you get so much more software that way.
@derek pikaur and pamac are the supreme aur helpers, DT.
@derek I was using it for quite some time on my manjaro system.
@derek Question : I've been using pacman -Syu && yay -Syu to update my entire system.
Do I understand correctly from your video that using it just with yay/paru (or just running paru) is sufficient , it will update everything (arch repo and AUR)?
@kenny You could just use yay and it will update both arch/manjaro repos and aur packages
@derek Thanks for introducing bat.
It's pretty powerful compared to cat
@derek Oh sweet. I've been installing everything the "hard" way. Didn't know about yay. This is very helpful. Thanks.
Didn't noticed the config file of paru.
Makes it a lot easier to configure the config file once instead of using always the wanted parameters in the syntax 🤪
the statement is just wrong. Yay won't be very active, but it's going to be maintained for a while. Paru is pretty good though.
@derek I've been using paru since I watched your video. Yesterday I uninstalled sudo and installed doas. After that, paru was little bit buggy. So I had to re-install sudo
@derek but... why? yay seems to be actively maintained, last commit was two days ago. I just tested paru but don't see any benefits over yay.
