This is a tool to build a binary repo for aur pkgs. You simply provide a list of pkgs to build, and run it. It will then download the pkgs, compile them, (detect dependency issues and build failures) and publish the pkgs in a repo. It can even build aur-pkgs, that depend on other aur-pkgs. When you then run aurbs the next time, it will detect pkg updates (or updated dependencies) and rebuild the corresponding pkgs. It also provides a web-ui where the build-status, the build-log, and the results can be displayed, and where the pkgs can be downloaded.


  • pacman -S devtools rsync python-setuptools python-simplejson python-yaml python-pymongo python-flask pyalpm ccache
  • yaourt -S python-flup-hg
  • run make install
  • useradd --system -c 'aurbs daemon user' -g daemon -d /var/cache/aurbs -s /bin/bash aurbs
  • chown -R aurbs: /var/cache/aurbs/ccache/*
  • chown -R aurbs: /var/cache/aurbs/build/*
  • set PACKAGER in /etc/makepkg.conf
  • modify /etc/aurbs.yml to define you pkgs and archs
  • make sure that mongodb is running
  • run aurbs to build pkgs

For the UI:

  • for better performance configure your webserver to allow x-sendfile or manually serve /var/lib/aurbs/aurstaging to /aurstaging
  • same reason, for the public repo: if you want to serve it on another url, specify that url in config
  • sample config for lighttpd: templates/lighttpd.conf.sample
