I came up with an idea for two packages, one for xxd only, and one with scripts providing executables like ex, view, vimdiff, etc.
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/neovim-drop-in/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xxd-standalone/
Aliases would be more elegant as long as no one relied on scripting with those tools.

The symlinks really don't work as they should anymore. Upstream removed support for using them as a way to access specific functions (ie, "ex" should be the same as nvim -e). The best options, as I see them, are to make most of these scripts similar to what vimdiff already is, or to drop a file in /etc/profile.d/ that defines all of these as aliases.

Opinions?

That's not happening. The point of this package is to point things to neovim, not to build other utils.

An working PKGBUILD with xxd: https://gist.github.com/yan12125/15eee330987fc0642ab2eafebcf30e6d

Hi, could you add xxd? It's the last command in vim but not in neovim: https://github.com/vim/vim/blob/master/src/xxd/xxd.c. Building fb-adb-git requires xxd.

Compiling it is as simple as a line: https://github.com/vim/vim/blob/master/src/xxd/Makefile

I've switched distro and won't be able to maintain and test this package any longer.

Thanks for the suggestion, both. Good plan. I've updated the package to depend on neovim instead of neovim-git and bumped the pkgrel. It is now compatible with the neovim package in [community].

Yes, this should only depend on neovim. neovim-git provides neovim so it would work.

It would be nice for this to support the official stable release of neovim, instead of only the -git version. https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/neovim/

As suggested through email, vimdiff has been added to the package. This points to nvim -d.
