+1 to removing pandoc.

Can the package do without pandoc? For me it's 500mb of haskell dependencies just to convert to html. And there's really no reason to convert it.

Whoops. I fumbled up my git repo and I guess I forgot to reupdate the sums before pushing :/

The AUR's authentication system seems to be down (the last pushed package was a bit over two hours ago), so I can't push the fix right now. For now, just run makepkg with `--skipchecksums`, or replace the second element of the `sha256sums` array with `deaf646a615c79a4672b087562a09c44beef37e7acfc6f5f66a437d4f3b97a25`. I'll push the fix when I find the AUR back online.

The hash for aseprite.desktop is outdated

I made a PKGBUILD that does what @jeancf suggested without needing a separate aseprite-skia-git package. I have a diff at if anyone wants to check it out

Also it looks like libwebp is statically linked so it's not needed as a dependency.

EDIT: Looks like hastebin is down...? I've posted it at if so.

the AUR package aseprite-git builds the aseprite dependency, compiles fine and runs. maybe this package can use the same method.

@jusw85 the ticket that dacap is tracking for skia stuff is here I recently added a comment about trying to get it to compile for arch

I wasn't able to build with a current version of skia, in case anyone's thinking of fixing the current skia-git to build aseprite with. Even though aseprite-skia is only six months old, there are too many backward compatibility breaking changes. Some of them can be trivially hacked around e.g. patching os/CMakeLists.txt in laf to point to new SKCMS location, adding base directory for includes, but APIs have been wholesale changed or removed

All right I suck at making PKGBUILD files but I made a real quick and dirty aseprite-skia-git and then altered the current PKGBUILD for aseprite to use the following

    -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo \
    -DLAF_OS_BACKEND=skia \
    -DSKIA_DIR=/usr/src/aseprite-skia/ \
    -DSKIA_OUT_DIR=/usr/lib \

Here is my glorious mess

After I ran the PKGBUILD.aseprite-skia-git and added those defines, it runs fine for me.

The AUR skia-git currently fails to compile for me. Aseprite also requires some of the source code from skia as well. This dependency is a pain in the ass to build, and it won't be going away and will be required from here on out.

I'm getting the same error as @grevius. I'm going to checkout the older version of the PKGBUILD until something is figured out. I'm sure that separate fork of skia is gonna be a pain. You could make a new package aseprite-skia and add it as a dep here. Just seems like a PITA.
