i3blocks shell archive

i3blocks is a highly flexible status line for the i3 window manager. It handles clicks, signals and language-agnostic user scripts.

I'm getting stage-qa failures in poudriere:

====> Running Q/A tests (stage-qa)
====> Checking for pkg-plist issues (check-plist)
===> Parsing plist
===> Checking for items in STAGEDIR missing from pkg-plist
Error: Orphaned: %%ETCDIR%%.conf.sample
Error: Orphaned: man/man1/i3blocks.1.md.gz
===> Checking for items in pkg-plist which are not in STAGEDIR
===> Error: Plist issues found.
*** Error code 1

A few more notes:

Instead of modifying CFLAGS, it's preferable to use USES=localbase:

-CFLAGS +=      -I${LOCALBASE}/include
-USES=          gmake tar:bzip2
+USES=          gmake localbase tar:bzip2

No need to set GH_PROJECT, it already defaults to ${PORTNAME}:

-GH_PROJECT=    i3blocks

Thanks for porting i3blocks, BTW :)

It's my first port on FreeBSD so I've doing something wrong feel free to correct me. I've tested the port on my system and it's build without any problems.

====> Compressing man pages (compress-man)
====> Running Q/A tests (stage-qa)
===>  Building package for i3blocks-1.5

I'll consider those changes. You can modify the port on github if you think I've missing something.

Thank you for suggestions!

I should've said "check-plist" failures, not "stage-qa" failures. If you run `make check-plist` it'll fail with the above errors.

The usual requirement for a new port is that it builds cleanly in poudriere:


and esp.


As to plist errors above,

- config sample will need to be included in PLIST_FILES and will need a bit of special handling: https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/porters-handbook/book.html#plist-config

- i3blocks.1.md looks like a Markdown docs, not a manpage, and should be installed as additional documentation: https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/porters-handbook/book.html#install-documentation

Using the fork looks rather unfortunate as it adds additional work for maintainer -- do the authors not accept patches?
