We use mainly pikaur. Feel free to add your favorite helper.

AUR helper with minimal dependencies. Review PKGBUILDs all in once, next build them all without user interaction.

Inspired by pacaur, yaourt and yay.

Instead of trying to be smarter than pacman (by using --nodeps, --force, --ask, --noconfirm and so) it just interactively tells pacman what to do. If pacman asks some unexpected question, the user will be just able to answer it manually.

pacman -S base-devel git
git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/pikaur.git
cd pikaur
makepkg -fsri
# System upgrade including AUR packages.
alias pik='pikaur -Syu'
# AUR package installation.
alias piki='pikaur -S'
