Looking for co-maintainers!

Shoot me an email if you're interested.

@shirleyquirk in the latest commit , I've changed PKGBUILD to use nim's official install.sh script (generated by ./koch distrohelper), but it doesn't follow the official nim packaging instructions.

BTW, the nim package in community repo doesn't follow the instructions, too. So I don't think the package is broken.

Sorry for replying late because I'm preparing an exam these days. If you could and would like to contribute to this package, you can write an email to @0x647262, and he'll give you co-maintainer permission.

packaging instructions have changed since feb 12. for example, nim expects its system libraries to be put in /usr/lib/nim/lib instead of /usr/lib/nim, meaning this package is broken.

@void09 already fixed now:

Cloning into 'nimble'... done. ==> Starting prepare()... fatal: reference is not a tree: 86742fb02c6606ab01a532a0085784effb2e753e

Errors out for me on:

Te _tag functio should be adjusted. Currently it does not show the latest tag.

_tag() {
  # Grab the most recent non-annotated tag:
  git tag | grep -E '^v' | sort -V | tail -1
}

Currently the pinned commit for the csource repo does not exist (upstream error).

Just tested this on aarch64, compiles without errors, so you can add it to the list of supported archs. Also, it needed the "patch" package, which was not installed in my barebones arm 64 system, might as well add it to build deps.

@void09 I don't list aarch64 support since I don't have hardware to test it on, but I can get you added you to the co-maintainer list if you'd like to.

Also, it needed the "patch" package, which was not installed in my barebones arm 64 system, might as well add it to build deps.

Evidently, a C compiler is a dependency. Not sure if that's really the type of thing that belongs in the dependency list

To answer both of these in one go, base-devel (https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Arch_User_Repository#Getting_started) is assumed to be installed (see the first note: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/PKGBUILD#makedepends) before you start working with AUR packages.

Evidently, a C compiler is a dependency. Not sure if that's really the type of thing that belongs in the dependency list, but I had some issues a while back and removed gcc while I was fixing them then forgot about it. Kept having non-descriptive errors until I tried choosenim instead and it said I needed one.

Some helpful discussion of build issues here: https://github.com/nim-lang/Nim/issues/17907

Nim has moved to csources_v1 to bootstrap, please update this PKGBUILD to use it so that it builds now that we start relying on the new bootstrap compiler.
