Thanks for the note, Vtec234. I've updated the PKGBUILD to fix this.

Build fails with
mv: cannot stat '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-wojciech/aur-python2-neovim-git/pkg/python2-neovim-git/usr/bin/pynvim': No such file or directory.
Commenting out the mv pynvim pynvim2 line in PKGBUILD makes it work.
This is why:

Fails with pacman 5.0:

> url should not be an array

@yan12125 - Thanks for the feedback - I've updated it.

@dave_v Could you please change pkgver() to:

pkgver() {
cd "$pkgname"
git describe --long --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

This function is extracted from With that, pkgver becomes 0.1.0.r0.g354d6f7, which matches versioning of community/python2-neovim.

Thanks demizer, I've updated the PKGBUILD.

This package does not build in a clean chroot as it is missing makedepends=('git')

@benjumanji: The way you load python support has changed. See here:


I had to explicitly set python_host_prog to /usr/bin/python2 to make it work again.

Question: I have removed the libtickit bits from the PKGBUILD, so it will build just fine. However my nvim exe still says provider for python_execute is unavailable. I have tried this with python2.7 as the default python exe as well via virtual env with no dice. Any ideas?
