The link to *.pkg.tar.zst is here.

This is a temporary (?) solution to my rant. And the tarball with make + make install does not work. (And installing from pip is not as beautiful as Ubuntu.)

pgadmin4 in AUR is outdated.

I am not running latest supported Ubuntu or Debian right now, so I used Docker.

FROM debian:bullseye-slim
RUN apt-get update
RUN apt-get install -y curl gnupg2 lsb-release
RUN curl https://www.pgadmin.org/static/packages_pgadmin_org.pub | apt-key add
RUN echo "deb https://ftp.postgresql.org/pub/pgadmin/pgadmin4/apt/$(lsb_release -cs) pgadmin4 main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgadmin4.list && apt-get update
RUN apt-get install -o dir::cache::archives="/" -d -y pgadmin4
ENTRYPOINT [ "/bin/bash", "-c", "cp pgadmin4*.deb /out/" ]
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then,

docker build -t pgadmin4-get .
docker run -v $(pwd)/out:/out pgadmin4-get
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then, use debtap

debtap pgadmin4-server_5.1_amd64.deb
debtap pgadmin4-desktop_5.1_amd64.deb
debtap pgadmin4-web_5.1_all.deb
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

However, for the last two files, we need to edit dependencies to avoid circular deps (which there is already an option in debtap).

Don't blame me for decompiling this on Manjaro Linux, though. Otherwise, do it on real Arch yourself...
