default-features were disabled for the reasons outlined in this commit.

The vte50 feature was added since then and I didn't notice. I'll look into updating.

Why is vte50 feature not enabled? It adds hyperlinks to terminals like gnome-terminal.

Thanks for the tip @Kr1ss. Pushed a new version.

Hi, thx a lot for providing this package @wezm. In the current PKGBUILD, would you mind changing line #21 to

patch -p1 < ../Cargo.toml.patch

b/c when a user has altered his BUILDDIR e.g. in the makepkg.conf, the patch file won't be found if you go up two folders.

Going up once works in either case b/c makepkg creates symlinks in $srcdir to all source files.

Cheers !

@lunaryorn The current config is will statically link the system libonig:

If a version of Oniguruma can be found by pkg-config then that will be used. If not then Oniguruma will be compiled from source and linked to the onig-sys crate. By default rust-onig will be statically linked to libonig.

I think that makes it a build time dependency, instead of a run time one. I suppose it's preferable to dynamically link the system lib so that it remains up to date. I'll tweak the config as suggested.

I think you must set "RUSTONIG_SYSTEM_LIBONIG=1" and/or "RUSTONIG_DYNAMIC_LIBONIG=1" while building; otherwise oniguruma is built from source and linked statically, and the binary does not actually depend on oniguruma at all. See

Fair point @flightcookie. There isn't a man page upstream at the moment so I'll remove it next time there's an update. Doesn't seem worth bumping the pkgrel for just this.

fightcookie commented on 2018-07-11 13:27

why is the documentation / man page install commented out? If it works it should be in the package as documentation / help and if it does not work it should be removed from the pkgbuild.

thanks in advance!:)

@Sanpi Thanks, I've moved it to depends.
