I've forked the original repository and merged in a bunch of the outstanding pull requests, as well as fixing some other issues. My fork is available at It'd be awesome if the PKGBUILD could be updated to use this source!

Cleaned up PKGBUILD. Updated [package] to latest version

Got rid of custom variable.
Enclosed all variables in quotes.
Changed PKGVER function to use upstream versioning scheme

Isn't this a git package that installs direct from the source? (It looks like it *has* been updated since, but only to bump the package version, and it was flagged out of date a while ago but still installed from source, so… I don't think anything's changed?)

Please update, this is out of date

The end of the last line in the install file seems to have a typo, it should be ~/.nanorc

For nano, version 2.6.1, the .install file suggestion, `echo "include /usr/share/nano-syntax-highlighting/*.nanorc" >> nanorc"` may not be clear to new users when highlighting isn't enabled. Nano uses either the system-wide /etc/nanorc (see man nanorc) or the user-specific ~/.nanorc. So this would only work if the line was added to the system-wide /etc/nanorc. I would suggest changing the .install file to `echo "include /usr/share/nano-syntax-highlighting/*.nanorc" >> ~/.nanorc"` so that highlighting is enabled. NOTE: add the line to /etc/nanorc to enable for sudo commands as well

added a simpler way to install $ echo "include /usr/share/nano-syntax-highlighting/*.nanorc" >> nanorc for those upgrading remove previous "include /usr/share/nano-syntax-highlighting/NAME.nanorc" or just add "include /usr/share/nano-syntax-highlighting/*.nanorc" to your nanorc

Note that the zsh nanorc file is now named 'zsh.nanorc' and not 'zshrc.nanorc'

Hello, got a small update to 88.e81bb08 with the main purpose of updating nanorc.sample to list all files to date + fix a name/desc of one or two and the license. srcpkg: diff: [MIRROR] [MIRROR]
