Thanks for the AURINFO!

gbc921 commented on 2014-08-20 13:00

I see. I kinda refuse to use this bundle installers (and lot of plugins) as I prefer the cleanest vim possible to be able to sit on other machine and still be familiar with a clean vim.

Regarding pacman, as the files stay in /home it's not that big deal. When things go beyond that, then it starts to be an issue.

@howardad I have uploaded a new package with the .AURINFO included.

howardad commented on 2014-08-19 22:05

@gbc921: If you're still wondering about pathogen, that is an alternative to pacman/AUR for installing vim plugins. Pathogen (and the other similar tools) is very easy to use, but then there are things installed on your system that pacman doesn't know about. Your call how much you care about that.

howardad commented on 2014-08-19 22:03

Please add AUR metadata to this package to stop pacaur's nagging. :)

gbc921 commented on 2014-05-08 20:39

Should this plugin be dependent of pathogen[1]? Or am I missing something?
At least on GitHub install instructions[2], it is.

Thanks mmlb, for the fixed PKGBUILD.

However, mmlb's PKGBUILD does build.

I edited the PKGBUILD to take advantage of makepkg-4.1's VCS abilities

# Contributor: Andreas B. Wagner <> awagner on
pkgdesc="Syntax checking hacks for vim"
makedepends=('git' 'rake')

pkgver() {
cd syntastic
echo $(git describe --tags | sed 's#-#_#g;s#v##')

package() {
mkdir -p $pkgdir/usr/share/vim/vimfiles/{plugin,doc,autoload/syntastic/,syntax_checkers}
cd "$srcdir/syntastic"
cp -r plugin/* $pkgdir/usr/share/vim/vimfiles/plugin/
cp doc/syntastic.txt $pkgdir/usr/share/vim/vimfiles/doc/
cp autoload/syntastic/* $pkgdir/usr/share/vim/vimfiles/autoload/syntastic/

Thanks igwan, fixed.

Syntastic is broken for me since the last PKGBUILD update :

cp autoload/syntastic/c.vim $pkgdir/usr/share/vim/vimfiles/autoload/syntastic/
should be
cp autoload/syntastic/* $pkgdir/usr/share/vim/vimfiles/autoload/syntastic/

Thanks EdwardXXIV, package updated.

Thanks for maintaining this package! It needs a small change though:

Why was this package flagged out-of-date? It builds for me.

lowfatcomputing commented on 2012-03-06 16:03

Package updated. Apologies for not doing it sooner.

daenyth commented on 2012-03-06 15:56

The help file patch is still not fixed...

donbex commented on 2012-03-01 10:41

Currently the syntastic help file is installed in /usr/share/vim/vimfiles/doc, while the command in the .install file updates help tags from files in /usr/share/vim/doc.
To fix this, change line 4 of 'vimdoc.install' from:
--cmd ":helptags /usr/share/vim/doc" --cmd ":q" > /dev/null 2>&1
--cmd ":helptags /usr/share/vim/vimfiles/doc" --cmd ":q" > /dev/null 2>&1
