It will be a client at this momment for current AUR, but we plan to
implement a full backend,api,front for the AUR and package management. It's
not a small work for me/us, so be patient, but as I guess the AUR web
application/server/backend can be changed for a command line tool, because I
like it as I like AUR installer, vim and other command line application.
 I tried/try to be close to the pacman source codebase, if someone would
like to contribute and know the source of pacman, he/she can do it easier,
but I'm not a good programmer like Xavier and Dan now :P

Btw, any opinion/suggestion would be nice or this:

Best Regards,
