I wonder if there is an archlinux (AUR) package for bitshares wallet.

At least there is a Vagrant box.  Wish there was a better guide for setting it up.

What is a Vagrant box? Can you give me a link?

The zip file for bitshares has a Vagrantfile but no instructions on how to use it,, I think is very simple and I have done it in the past. But having the instructions on the README shouldnt be such a hassle, instead of having the user go to look for it.
https://www.vagrantup.com/docs/

Also would be nice to have docker too.

There could be a bitshare-bin, meaning a precompiled version for arch. just like for example telegram-desktop-bin. That allow you to not rely on the current libraries.

Dockerfiles exist somewhere .. maybe worth refreshing them and putting it all together

I was about to make a new post then I saw your message xD
Brand new docker magic
The pull request and instructions (section Usage with docker-compose): https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-core/pull/376
(see EDIT)

I'm an arch user so I'd gladly help for the package too

[EDIT]
There are already good images in this repo https://github.com/crazybits/docker-compose-files/tree/master/bitshares I'll write instructions for them if they don't exist already.
For a start just do:
Code: [Select]
git clone https://github.com/crazybits/docker-compose-files.git
cd docker-compose-files/bitshares
docker-compose -f docker-compose_start.yml up
This should get a node up and running with webwallet access

If you have curl you can just do
Code: [Select]
curl -Lo docker-compose.yml 'https://raw.github.com/crazybits/docker-compose-files/master/bitshares/docker-compose_start.yml'
docker-compose up
in a new directory

If you have wget you can just do
Code: [Select]
wget 'https://raw.github.com/crazybits/docker-compose-files/master/bitshares/docker-compose_start.yml' -O docker-compose.yml
docker-compose up
in a new directory
