This package is required for the R-package V8 (https://github.com/jeroen/V8). It is frequently updated, though unless it is broken, users must not build all updates. Since V8 contains a large codebase and compilation takes a while, I recommend to build it in a directory and not with an AUR-helper.

@nevrome You can build it locally, e.g using yay you can something like this

cd /tmp

yay -G v8-r

cd v8-r

makepkg

Hi @nevrome, looks like something fails. I see similar errors when building in a python 3 environment. The warnings are expected and not harmful. Could you elaborate how you try to build?

Building fails for me with the following message. What's the problem here?

@Hendrikto thanks for the report, but ninja should be part of depot_tools and line 45 of the PKGBUILD should make ninja available for the PKGBUILD. The package is build with makepkg weekly on systems without installed ninja. If nothing changed in depot_tools maybe it's a bug with your AUR-helper?

This package is missing a make dependency in ninja:

/home/hendrik/.cache/yay/v8-r/PKGBUILD: line 102: ninja: command not found
