Hi patrick.luehne

> but the dependency to ruby-rouge can’t be found when attempting to build Jekyll without any Ruby dependencies installed

Yes, I reproduced it. There is three version of rough on AUR & community: community/ruby-rouge 3.0.0-1, aur/ruby-rouge-1 1.11.1-2 and aur/ruby-rouge-2.0 2.0.7-2, the last one package actually meet the requirement 1.7 <= ruby-rouge < 3, I don't know while my aur helper(yaourt) can not find the dependency :-(.

> The official gemspec file shows that ruby-rouge >= 1.7 and < 4 is okay

Here is 3.6.2 but not git master, so I think we should follow jekyll's page[1] on

@SilverRainZ: Thanks for taking over :)! You’re probably already aware of this, but the dependency to ruby-rouge can’t be found when attempting to build Jekyll without any Ruby dependencies installed. Should we create a new ruby-rouge (without version number suffix in the name) package for that?

Also, I think that the dependency to ruby-rouge < 3 isn’t needed. The official gemspec file shows that ruby-rouge >= 1.7 and < 4 is okay [1], if I read that correctly.

Aside from the fact that this PKGBUILD is still broken, I believe that the package name should be “jekyll” and not “ruby-jekyll,” according to the Arch Ruby Gem packaging guidelines [1]. The prefix “ruby-” appears to be used only for libraries and not applications such as Jekyll.

Please don't update the version without fix dependencies.
This package is still *BROKEN*.

Please fix the dependency to liquid ≥ 4.0.0 in the PKGBUILD.

Concerning the Liquid dependency, I added an AUR package called ruby-liquid containing the required version (4.0.0).

I believe the dependencies should now read:

depends=('ruby' 'ruby-addressable>=2.4' 'ruby-colorator>=1.0' 'ruby-jekyll-sass-converter>=1.0' 'ruby-jekyll-watch>=1.1' 'ruby-kramdown>=1.14' 'ruby-liquid>=4.0' 'ruby-mercenary>=0.3.3' 'ruby-pathutil>=0.9' 'ruby-rouge-2.0' 'ruby-safe_yaml>=1.0')

Let me know if I can be of any help :). Thanks!

Dear maintainers,

Jekyll as of version 3.6.0 has multiple dependencies that are currently not met by this package [1].

The following dependencies are missing or outdated:

* ruby-kramdown (1.14 required but only 1.10 in the AUR, I already contacted the maintainers)
* ruby-liquid (4.0 required but only 3.0.6 in the AUR, a new package might be necessary)

I suggest adding the required minimal versions to the PKGBUILD dependencies exactly as listed in the gemspec [1]. Concerning liquid 4, I’m not sure whether it should be a package separate from ruby-liquid-3, or whether there should be only one ruby-liquid package at some point. What do you think?

Best wishes,

Yes, the 'jekyll new' template uses bundler to install the minima theme. But jekyll can be used without themes nevertheless.

yair commented on 2017-09-21 12:19

seems bundler is a requirement, also mentioned in the jekyll quick start page

```➜ jekyll new blog
Dependency Error: Yikes! It looks like you don't have bundler or one of its dependencies installed. In order to use Jekyll as currently configured, you'll need to install this gem.

ber532k: Are you using a theme / plugin? I think jekyll uses bundler to download (and build?) themes and/or plugins. But I'm pretty sure that it's not a hard dependency.

I just had an issue after installing this package via pacaur. Something about bundler-something not found. Installing ruby-bundler from community (and reinstalling ruby-jekyll) apparently fixed that, so you might consider adding ruby-bundler as a dependency.
