Some time ago, they installed a long for me, and they explained how it was used. However, it cost me a lot to understand it at first. Now rushessay looking for a slightly newer version that helps me with versatility.

Amazing, thanks!

@kseistrup The issue should be fixed for everyone now.

@kseistrup Ah, sorry, I meant ./v install markdown (so you're running the copy of v made from the git repo).

Good to hear you figured it out.

I don't know anything about vlang, I only have it installed because it is (or was?) a build dependency of another package.

Running “v install markdown” didn't work because apparently v needs vpm, that wasn't built yet. But after the previously mentioned error I could run “src/v- install markdown” successfully and the go back to “makepkg -s” to build the package.

@tyrannis.hawk I've added git to makedepends now. For some reason I keep thinking it's in base-devel...

@kseistrup The markdown module in required when building vdoc. Since modules are installed in the user's home directory by default, I already had it installed from previous testing unknowingly. I will try to fix this hopefully later today. If you want to work around it in the meantime, build v straight from the git repository and run v install markdown. You should be able to install the vlang package afterwards.

vlang does not build here:

V self compiling (-prod)...
builder error: cannot import module "markdown" (not found)
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
error making: %!s(func() string=0x55b93b10ba60)

If you are using

git checkout 197b42bd0e9268ec7c3c16526edc8530ad90a075

or other git commands in your PKGBUILD, you need to add git as a makedepends, otherwise your package will fail to build in a clean build environment.

Could you please add it?

I noticed today that the package is flagged out-of-date (don't know why I didn't get an AUR email), and I appreciate the notice. However, I'm running into issues packaging v now because it does not compile cmd tools on installation, instead building them lazily. This doesn't work without 777 access to /usr/lib/vlang/cmd/tools and we obviously can't allow that. I'm attempting to work around this, but between other various packaging issues due to v itself, its current development status, and its design for installation as a whole, v is quite difficult to install in a system directory.

I still plan to update the package in the next few days; hold tight.
