aurweb RPC Interface
====================
Allowed methods
---------------
Package Search
--------------
* `search`
* `info`
* `multiinfo`
* `msearch`
Package searches can be performed by issuing HTTP GET requests of the form
+/rpc/?v=5&type=search&search_by=_by_&arg=_keywords_+ where _by_ is either
`name` (search by package name only), `name-desc` (search by package name and
description) or `maintainer` (search by package maintainer) and _keywords_ is
the search argument. The _search_by_ parameter can be skipped and defaults to
`name-desc`.
Each method requires the following HTTP GET syntax:
+type=_methodname_&arg=_data_+
If a maintainer search is performed and the search argument is left empty, a
list of orphan packages is returned.
Where _methodname_ is the name of an allowed method, and _data_ is the argument
to the call.
Package Details
---------------
If you need jsonp type callback specification, you can provide an additional
variable _callback_.
Package information can be obtained by issuing HTTP GET requests of the form
+/rpc/?v=5&type=info&arg[]=_pkg1_&arg[]=_pkg2_&...+ where _pkg1_, _pkg2_, ...
are the names of packages to retrieve package details for.
Examples
--------
`search`::
`http://aur-url/rpc.php?type=search&arg=foobar`
`/rpc/?v=5&type=search&arg=foobar`
`search` by maintainer::
`/rpc/?v=5&type=search&search_by=maintainer&arg=john`
`search` with callback::
`/rpc/?v=5&type=search&arg=foobar&callback=jsonp1192244621103`
`info`::
`http://aur-url/rpc.php?type=info&arg=foobar`
`multiinfo`::
`http://aur-url/rpc.php?type=multiinfo&arg[]=foo&arg[]=bar`
`msearch`::
`http://aur-url/rpc.php?type=msearch&arg=john`
Callback::
