Nextcloud-client on Slackware Linux

Hello,

I admit that I really adore the nextcloud application and I am using it extensively for my private backups. I use Slackware Linux.
Typically Slackware users compile the source code and bundle them in packages. Slackbuild shell scripts are normally employed. They are usually found on https://slackbuilds.org or other trusted repositories.

I drafted a SlackBuild for nextcloud-client. It is available here:

$ git clone https://github.com/ChrisAbela/nextcloud-client.git

I prefer to include a link for the latest stable version of the source code. May I have the link please?

This link?

This is an update:

The awesome https://slackbuilds.org/ community is now supporting both nextcloud-client and nextcloud-server:

https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/network/nextcloud-client/
https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/network/nextcloud-server/

I am not in favor of packaging the server application, but as slackbuilds are just shell scripts and include terse but adequate instructions on how to set it up, it is trivial to amend the scripts to exclude the packaging. Almost all Slackers rsync these scripts on their machines, so now nextcloud will be just a few keystrokes away on Slackware.

Hi,
at Slackbuild, i should dowload :
https://github.com/owncloud/client/archive/v2.4.2/client-2.4.2.tar.gz ???

And also on your git

Citation
PRGNAM=nextcloud-client
VERSION=${VERSION:-2.3.2}
OWNCLOUD_VERSION=${OWNCLOUD_VERSION:-2.3.2}
BUILD=${BUILD:-1}
TAG=${TAG:-_SBo}

???

The best way to install 3rd party packages on Slackware is from slackbuilds.org. The git repo was used until someone else took the lead. The scripts on slackbuilds.org are usually well maintained. The link is here: https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/network/nextcloud-client/

If you need further assistance on how to install packages, head to https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/

I confirm that the latest supported source download is https://github.com/nextcloud/client_theming/archive/v2.3.3/client_theming-2.3.3.tar.gz

Well,

I use slackware since 7.0, thanks.

You did not answer my question :
https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/network/nextcloud-client/

the slackbuild is normally for Nextcloud BUT the slackbuild use Owncloud as i wrote in my quote of slackbuild :
This is based on the owncloud-client slackbuild in https://slackbuilds.org

PRGNAM=nextcloud-client
VERSION=${VERSION:-2.3.3}
OWNCLOUD_VERSION=${OWNCLOUD_VERSION:-2.4.2}
BUILD=${BUILD:-1}
TAG=${TAG:-_SBo}

Yes, that might be the case as nextcloud is (or was) a fork of owncloud as stated in the README
