As "After" is for optional dependencies this should be possible. I'll add this when I'm home.

Have you considered perhaps making the service dependent on PMS having started already? I have a user override to add an 'After', as otherwise if PlexPy starts before PMS I generally have to restart it in order for it to 'see' the media server.

The 'welcome.html.patch' file is still in the build. It should be removed since it is no longer referenced.

I've got some suggestions for the package now that they PlexPy has mad some changes to the 'welcome.html' file. Because 'version.txt' has been added to the package, the patch is no longer needed. I would suggest that the patch be removed, modify the 'prepare' function to only run 'echo "v${pkgver}" > ${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/version.txt', and to change the version to '1.4.0'. All should be well.

Hm, okay... I now added a plexpy home dir to the plexpy.install file.

The plexpy.install file will as well change the home dir to a valid directory, if the home dir for plexpy is nonexistent. But this will only work if the plexpy service/process is not running while upgrading.

Hope this works for everyone and thank you @Sparticuz for letting me know.

Don't know how, but the user plexpy got created wanting a home directory. The shadow service was failing because of it. I fixed it with 'sudo usermod -d /dev/null plexpy'

Version with 'echo "v$pkgver" > version.txt' is now pushed to aur! ;)

Ah, so 'echo "v$pkgver" > version.txt' is correct, I thought the comment ate your original from the email I got. ;)

After I submitted my previous comment, I checked the logs in PlexPy and realized that command in the 'prepare' function wasn't going to work. The Github API works properly if you pass the tag, but not the hash of the tag. I updated my comment to reflect the change.

That seems to work fine, here is a git format-patch that does it along with changing a couple tabs to spaces.
