Introduction ============ aurquery-el is an Emacs-based front-end for the Arch User Repository (AUR). At present, it offers little functionality. It provides two features: search for a package, and obtain detailed information about a package. aurquery-el saves time and keystrokes for those of us whose primary operating environment is Emacs. Installation ============ Copy aurquery.el to some directory in your load-path. Add the form (require 'aurquery) to your .emacs. It couldn't be simpler. Usage ===== Aurquery-el provides two user-visible commands: aur-search and aur-info. The user might wish to bind these to keystrokes in the global keymap. aur-search prompts for a list of keywords, and it uses these to query the server. It creates a new buffer and fills it with results. Each line of the buffer contains the name of a single package. aur-info asks the user for the name of a package. It requests detailed information about that package from the server and places the details in a new buffer. Both commands place the user in the buffer that contains their results.
