Yay - An AUR Helper written in Go


Since pacaur went “private” I had to dig for a new package manager. I randomly took yay. Turns out its the best choice in my life.

From the usage its pretty similar to yaourt. But its way more secure since it lets you inspect the PKGBUILD before it runs it ;). It also gives you the option to uninstall make deps after the installation of an package that needs to be compiled (with for example go) to safe space which is in my opinion THE best feature.
