Please don't flag this package out-of-date just because the version number displayed on AUR seems old.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.

Isn't it possible to use those external tools like luajit, luarocks etc, which are being downloaded and built during the build process, by including them as a dependency?

neovim takes completely different route on providing plugins interface, look up on,-clipboard-integration-and-other-service-providers-through-msgpack-RPC-channels for some insight. I don't know about lua, it might be special, because AFAIK they plan to use it as vimscript replacement at some point.

What is the neovim replacement for things like --enable-pythoninterp and --enable-luainterp?

Thanks, I've update THE PKGBUILD. I've changed the license, but not to Apache though. The neovim code base still contains a lot of code under the old vim license, only the new additions are licensed under Apache, so setting the license to Apache does not seem quite right to me, although I'm no expert on licensing issues.

1. vim-license.txt has been moved to LICENSE
2. License has changed from custom:vim to Apache

I managed to build it without bundled dependencies by using this patch:

You also need to set the environment variable USE_BUNDLED_DEPS=OFF.

The bug is reported upstream, but it seems to be a low priority:

A lua-cmsgpack package is currently missing from the Arch repos though.

The wiki page about PKGBUILDs [1] seems very clear about this: "Members of "base-devel" should not be included in makedepends arrays."

libtool is needed for building, but it is absent for makedepends.

I remember that in wiki it is written to install base-devel group before building AUR packages, but I think that if this needs libtool for building, it should be there in makedepends.

@lilydjwg: I don't think this is possible with the current neovim build system.
The current build script does not support using system dependencies, but fetches and builds them separately (

I guess this approach is easier at the moment, because they rely on fairly recent version which is a problem for some distributions.

That said, I guess a patch for upstream should be doable for anybody with good CMAKE knowledge.

I see it tries to download libuv and luajit sources when building. Is it possible to depend on the packages already installed instead of duplicating them?
