Version updated, added dependencies according to instructions and fixed path. Plugin should be good to go! :)

Please use the tagged version on github which contains some much needed bugfixes:

jq is called in the PKGBUILD, but it's not named as dependency for this package

Looking at the recent commits for both instant-markdown-d and vim-instant-markdown I don't see anything that looks like a fix but indeed instant-markdown-d does not crash for me with the new PKGBUILD so it must have been fixed somehow. Maybe it was actually a problem in itself and it got fixed there?

Hi, I sincerely apologize for not catching that sooner, it is updated now. I also removed the patch as it seems to be no longer needed. If it still errors on build for anyone, comment, I'll replace the patch.

Hi, it seems that the checksum for the file 'instant-markdown.vim' is outdated.

Great, thanks.

By the way, the project has new maintainers now (Future of instant-markdown-d and vim-instant-markdown? #540) so hopefully this patch won't be necessary for long.

cameel I've added your changes to the PKGBUILD and the patch file. It seems to install fine with your changes.

instant-markdown-d installed by this package crashes for me with the following error message:

Option log level is not valid. Please refer to the README.

This seems to be an upstream bug. Patching it to use an older version of (as suggested in Fails on OS X #13) fixes the problem.

Here is an updated PKGBUILD if anyone is interested. I have also tweaked it to actually install instant-markdown-d from the tarball it downloads - it was just ignoring the tarball and redownloading it with npm.

vim has been made optional.

Please note that I don't use this package anymore; feel free to contact me if you wish to maintain it. I will eventually disown it.
