yet another aur helper in ruby
Ruby Shell
Find file


An aurget-like helper written in ruby.


  1. Easier to hack on (97% test coverage)
  2. Useful debug output (pretty colors!)
  3. It's very fast (compared to aurget at least)

Try it

$ gem install bundler
$ bundle
$ bundle exec bin/raury --help

Install it

$ curl | bash

Arch users can use the PKGBUILD.
