  • aurutils

    Helper tools for the AUR.

    if you’re willing to stray away from github actions, aurutils works pretty well with making a local repository and i think could actually be the easiest way to do this. you could use some of its scripts to make your own script that would go into your PKGBUILDs repo, build each package in a clean chroot, sign the resulting package with your gpg key, and then add them to your local repository (and that’s all with just the aur build script!) i’ve never done this part myself, but i don’t think it would be too hard to mount your local repository to a web server like nginx where it would be accessible from whatever domain you have setup. using that, the repository could then just be added to pacman.conf and used like any other repo - with it even having signature checking, which i don’t think github actions would allow for
