the maintainer of the upstream repository has announced that this plugin is no longer maintained as-per this announcement:

they recommend transitioning to either pckr.nvim: ~~ which is still in development, or lazy.nvim: ~~ which is more stable and actively maintained as of now.

@prometheus You'll have to do at least a minimal config - if you follow the example in the repo, you'll add the following data to the following files (creating them and their parent directories if they don't exist):


lua require('plugins')


vim.cmd [[packadd packer.nvim]]

return require('packer').startup(function()
  -- Packer can manage itself
  use 'wbthomason/packer.nvim'

  -- You add plugins here  

Of course you don't have to call the second file plugins.lua, but whatever name you do use would have to correspond to what you have in init.vim

Any additional configuration require?

Thank you for this package. I was having trouble building it with aurtools, and after raising it with the author of that it's been suggested that cut/rev are not required in the version step:

The alternative provided is _reponame=${url##*/}. In anticipation of more formal advice is it possible to make this change for now?
