Paru is an AUR helper and pacman wrapper written in Rust and based on the design of yay.

I’ve been using yay for about a year now and I’ll be playing around with paru for the next weeks. I still have yay installed and yes, I used yay to install paru.

yay -S paru-bin

Installing and upgrading packages from the Arch repositories or from the AUR it’s just like yay.

Basic examples (more on the Paru github page):

paru - equivalent to paru -Syu, it will synchronize your package databases and start a full system upgrade.

paru package_name - it searches for the ‘package_name’ and installs it.
