burp - an AUR uploader
burp [options] packages...
burp is a simple tool to upload packages to the AUR. It is written in C and only depends on libcurl for its functionality.
Invoking burp consists of supplying any applicable options and one or more packages. Packages are tarballs generated by makepkg's --source operation.
- -u USER, --user=USER
AUR login username. If omitted and not specified in the config file, you will be prompted to enter this at runtime.
- -p PASSWORD, --password=PASSWORD
AUR login password. If omitted and not specified in the config file, you will be prompted to enter this at runtime.
- -e, --expire
Instead of uploading packages, burp will try to expire the session referred to by the active cookiefile. This would be the equivalent of clicking a "logout" link on the AUR website.
- -c CAT, --category=CAT
Specify CAT to assign to uploaded packages. This should only be specified once. If specified multiple times, the last will take precedence. If this option is not specified, the category will default to type 'None' for new taurballs and the current category for updated taurballs. A list of valid categories can be obtained by invoking the -c flag with 'help'.
- -C FILE, --cookies=FILE
Read and write login cookies from FILE. The file must be a valid Netscape cookie file.
- -v, --verbose
Be more verbose. Pass this option twice to see debug info.
burp will look for a config file located at $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/burp/burp.conf and read default options from it in key=value format. Valid keys are:
Password = PASSWORD
Cookies = FILE
These should all be self explanatory. Comments, if desired, can be specified by starting a line with a #. Command line options will always take precedence over options specified in the config file.
