A simple pacman-like interface to the AUR written in bash.


Aurget is designed to make the AUR convenient and speed up tedious actions. The user can decide to search, download, build, and/or install packages consistently through a configuration file or dynamically by passing arguments on the command-line.

Sourcing user-created PKGBIULDs comes with risks. Please, if you’re worried about this, be sure to view all PKGBUILDs before proceeding.

You have been warned.


Study the Arch wiki, then manually build and install aurget.

Follow development via GitHub.


See aurget --help, man 1 aurget, and man 5 aurgetrc.

Reporting Bugs

If you’ve found a bug or want to request a feature, please let me know via GitHub Issues. If you can implement what you’re looking for, please open a Pull Request, preferably including tests.

Aurget does not and will not search or install from the official repositories. This is by design and will not be implemented even if you offer a patch. Use another AUR Helper if this is what you’re looking for.
