Please don't flag this package out-of-date just because the version number displayed on AUR seems old. This is normal for VCS packages. As long as building the package works without problems, it isn't necessary to update the PKGBUILD here. makepkg will automatically retrieve the latest version when you build the package locally.

Duplicate tag issues arise regularly [1] causing builds to fail until the user does a clean build. This can be fixed by running "rm -rf runtime/docs" directly before the cmake generator [2]. For now I've uploaded neovim-git-ninja with that fix and full incremental build support [3].

[1] (most recent commit causing rebuilds to fail)
[2] (commit documenting fix)

Thanks for the hints, I fixed arch and modified the PKGBUILD to use ninja without relying on the top-level makefile for any step.

chetgurevitch: Thanks for the hint about LuaJIT, I had missed moving that from makedepends to depends. As for your other changes, it looks like you switched the code to use the top-level Makefile. This Makefile is only intended for developers and should not be used for packaging. Also, see [1] for hints about when to use "arch=(any)".

Hi, I've been testing some changes to the package. I updated the dependency list to contain luajit [1], switched the build system to ninja for significantly faster (incremental) builds and cut out some bundled deps along with other minor cleanup work. I'd be happy to co-maintain the package if that's alright with you, otherwise I've linked the changes below for you to look over [2].

I've also got an updated version of the official neovim package and lua51-mpack but I'm holding off on contacting Sven for now. The latter required major changes (including splitting the package [3] [4]) which rely on a fix only available on git currently and I'd like to land any changes to the repo packages together. Everything's in that github repo though.

machfour: Thanks! I updated the PKGBUILD according to your suggestions.

Hi, the latest version of neovim now has a .desktop file and icon file to go with it.
To install these files appropriately, I used the following package() function:

package() {
cd "${pkgname}/build"
make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install
cd ..
install -Dm644 LICENSE "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/LICENSE"
install -Dm644 runtime/nvim.desktop "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/nvim.desktop"
install -Dm644 runtime/nvim.png "${pkgdir}/usr/share/pixmaps/nvim.png"

rthyberg: The build should use LuaJIT, which has bitop built in. Did you see [1]?


rthyberg commented on 2017-02-21 01:29

Missing dependency lua51-bitop
Also the cmake looks for the lua interpreter at /usr/bin/lua when it should be /usr/bin/lua5.1

htfy96 commented on 2017-02-01 06:20

Now it comes with a builtin .desktop file( Is there anything to change in this repo?

nishantvarma: Sorry, I don't understand your question. gperf is already a build-time dependency.
