Use reflector to update and order your mirrorlist

I came across a neat little program that ranks your pacman mirrorlist by speed and also updates it with the most recent version.

Install:

sudo pacman -S reflector

Usage example:

sudo reflector --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist -c "Belgium" -c "Netherlands" -c "France" -c "Germany" -f 5 -l 5 -p https

This will update my mirrorlist and rank by speed/rate for the countries Belgium, The Netherlands, France and Germany.
