Having error with build, rapidjson-git issues. I have latest version installed.
I tried building with git makepkg -si and yaourt both failed to build kodi-git.

Edit - "git clone" makepkg -si, I was
able to build kodi with that rapidjson package not rapidjson-git in AUR.

@mrturcot well hot diggity! that worked like a charm.

For me though, i tried cloning mingw-w64-gtest and using makepkg failed b/c of missing dep. pacaur however took care of all that and it went as advertised from there. @BlackIkeEagle's rapidjson-git built just fine. Many thanks

Please change makedeps: 'rapidjson-git' to 'rapidjson'.

@slobeck I was able to build @BlackIkeEagle's "rapidjson-git" PKG and in turn "kodi-git".
"rapidjson-git" calls for "gtest" so I got it from Community "gtest" and from AUR "mingw-w64-gtest"
(not sure if I needed both PKG's). It still failed to build so I copied the contents of
"/usr/src/gtest/" to a newly created DIR "/usr/src/gtest/include/gtest/"
and "rapidjson-git" completed building.

I was able to build "kodi-git" without any issues after. Thanks!!

@BlackIkeEagle your rapidjson-git fails to build

@tixetsal You can get the proper pkgbuild for rapidjson-git here:

I'm going to have to create a rapidjson package anyway so its available by the time kodi 18 has to go to community

@BlackIkeEagle I tried downloading rapidjson, but of course it gets replaced by rapidjson-git as the package managers run through dependencies.
I wanted to make sure that it wasn't something I was doing. I appreciate the work that you put into maintaining kodi-git.

@tixetsal I know, the maintainer of rapidjson-git must fix the package first.

see my comments there:

I still can't build this package (with yaourt or pacaur), and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I receive the following error:
