wget is a dependency.

It is needed by gclient sync in depot_tools.

Yeah, the docs for GN and V8 are still lacking a bit.

Now I'm using v8-5.2 but I'll have to switch to the latest V8 version very, very soon. So I'll have to work my way through GN. Also testing a build is kinda time consuming I would like to have a 36 cores Xeon beast ;)

Hmm... When I build this, it doesn't actually produce a file any more, so this line fails:

install -Dm755 $pkgdir/usr/lib/v8/

Also, it would be nice to get static libraries being built again but I understand that that's tricky when using GN?

@MagiCarbon try with v8-5.2 has all the libs now.

sorry, i was wrong. i've asked the author of php-v8js, he said it does support the latest v8. sorry for all confusion.

and the error below occurred because this package lost '', not the v8 version.

configure: error: could not determine libv8 version

Gyp is deprecated now for building v8, I switched to GN. So I guess compilation should work next time you try.

@MagiCarbon (and others)
Because seems that some people need v8 5.2 for phpjs (But Why ? ;) ) I've added a new package called v8-5.2 which still uses Gyp and it should generate all the libs necessary for phpjs.

Hi, I'm getting this error during compile:

==> Starting build()...
-> Running gyp...
Updating projects from gyp files...
-> Start building...
ninja: Entering directory `out/Release'
ninja: error: '../../third_party/WebKit/Source/platform/inspector_protocol/DispatcherBase.cpp', needed by 'obj/third_party/WebKit/Source/platform/inspector_protocol/inspector_protocol.DispatcherBase.o', missing and no known rule to make it
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Anyone knows how to solve?

You can simply clone the package and set pkgver=5.2.361.49.

If that version works with php-v8js you should upload a package with the name:
