@jmcb I named the package neo-matrix since neo-git already exists, which would be a VSC variant of package called neo. It is true that the neo package itself doesn't exist but it could cause confusion since they are not the same program.

@zoorat I don't see any reason for the package not to just be called neo. it doesn't already exist, and pacman -F neo doesn't show any files it would conflict with. I just adopted the package so I'll make this change if people agree

this package only comes with /usr/bin/neo-matrix but man page's EXAMPLES says

Example 0: Just run it
Example 1: Sets a faster, asynchronous scrolling speed with 256 colors
    neo -S 12 -a --color=green3 --colormode=256

can u edit the manpage or create symlink /usr/bin/neo ??

@saltedcoffii Thanks for suggesting the change! I've added the --program-suffix option to the configure command and also the --prefix option so it's made sure that make install does the right thing. Also thank you for adding the package to the Arch Wiki!

Have you considered using a --program-suffix='-matrix' configure argument instead of moving the manpage and binary manually? I tested it, and it works.

@kleintux Nothing I see there states that tarballs are preferred over git sources, even the validation of checksum. I might have missed it so let me know. Usually a preferred source is one that is signed but since neither is signed in this case, there is no preference.

@kleintux thanks for the comment. Is there any particular reason why that should be done? I prefer using git commit since it's more reliable.
