Please don't flag this package out-of-date just because the version number displayed on AUR seems old.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

I've updated the PKBUILD, thanks for your feedback dtzWill & petelewis

It also seems that once installed, it expects to find things in /usr/local rather than /usr. E.g.

"syntax on" in .nvimrc gives me this:

E484: Can't open file /usr/local/share/vim/syntax/syntax.vim

Is there a build-time flag which should be set to make nvim look in /usr instead?

I had to add luarocks as a dep (possibly just a makedep?) to build this. Thanks.

This package fails to build when 'ninja' is installed on the system.

'make cmake' generates ninja build files if possible, which causes
the later attempt to 'cd build' and 'make' to fail since
no Makefiles were generated.

Easiest solution is to simply remove 'cd build' from the PKGBUILD entirely,
as 'make' in the root directory defaults to invoking the proper build tool on the build directory.

Alternatively you could choose to specify the build tool if desired, but that seems more fragile.

Any idea what's wrong with yanking to/pasting from X clipboard?
I have autocutsel installed, and this works perfectly fine with mainline vim:
set clipboard=unnamedplus
But not for neovim.
From :help clipboard-unnamedplus
{only in GUI versions or when the +xterm_clipboard
Cannot find xterm_clipboard anywhere in neovim's source.

I successfully built neovim with system libraries, but it's probably better to fetch them at build, since lua-cmsgpack isn't available on AUR without installing luarocks.

I got the same issue, but I wasn't able to reproduce it later. I've submitted a pull request on GitHub to fix this.

I looked into the build issues. Neovim needs msgpack, lua51-lpeg and cmsgpack to build, but it seems like the build script does not take system libraries into account. I've updated the PKGBUILD to use `make cmake` which fetches and builds the dependencies (using luarocks for the lua stuff). But there seems to be a build error :

pkgbuilds/neovim/src/neovim/src/term.c:3452:48: error: ‘row_char’ may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
if (j == 1 && tp[i] == 'R' && row_char == '2' && col >= 2) {

and cmsgpack ( not in the AUR yet) are required
