So let’s install it(Install any package the same way)
Things to get ready
You have two packages before anything: base-devel and git for compilation and installation.
Install them with this command

mkdir aur-stuff cd aur-stuff git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/yay.git
Go to the directory and compile.
cd yay makepkg -si
and wait for some time.
