Archlinux package now available!

I just made a package for Stanza for Archlinux! It's available from the
AUR here:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/stanza/

I had to hotwire things a little to get Stanza to use gcc-5. I looked at
the code and it seems on linux, it's hard coded to use 'cc'. That should
be configurable using ~/.stanza or using the $CC environment variable.

Also, there should be a global stanza config—maybe /etc/stanza.conf.
Running cd mystanza && stanza install -platform linux for every user
gets a little repetitive.

Also, freedesktop.org recommends keeping config files in ~/.config/ so
as not to pollute the home directory. See
https://specifications.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/latest/ar01s03.html

 

Thank you for creating the package! We'll update the website with it soon! And also look into making the changes to make Stanza a better-behaving Linux citizen.

Oh, wow! I wasn't expecting it to lead to a website update! Cool! I'll poke around the config file code as soon as I get the git version working. It's broken at the moment. Submitting a bug now...
