Editicalu’s ArchLinux Repository (shortened as EAR) is a small, automatically built repository of AUR packages. It allows people to use a list of curated AUR packages, without having to compile them themselves.

The EAR is unique, as it uses GitLab CI to automatically build new versions of packages, without human action required. This ensures that the EAR stays up to date at any given time. By using GitLab to do this, we can give people trust, as opposed to repo’s compiled on personal computers, with no oversight in the process.

It goes without saying that the EAR is free to use and enhance. Give me a shoutout if you miss a particular AUR package.
