head and awk is unnecessary. the whole version thing can be done with sed. ./bin/nvim nvim --version | sed -n 's/^NVIM v//;1s/-/+/gp'

@dchusovitin Sorry, but s/v// only replaces the first instance of v, you would need a global flag s/v//g to replace all instances. Hence if you know the string starts with a "v" you don't need to anchor the match, just don't do a global replace.

@quebin31, sorry, but: sed 's/v//' - it will replace all "v" (commit hash may contain "v") sed 's/^v//' - instead of, remove only first "v" char

I think there is an issue with naming the source file. Since pkgver is run after downloading the sources it might not download the newest version since it finds the current version already downloaded. A better approach would be to use the current date as nightlies are updated every day. Something like this

_filename="$(date -u +%Y%m%d)-${_src}"

New pkgkver() has a bug. Version shouldn't contain "v".

yzia2000, or just use the nvim --version

pkgver() {
  cd "${srcdir}/nvim-linux64"
  ./bin/nvim --version | head -1 | awk '{print $2}'

pkgver() {
  ver=$(curl "" | grep -oP '(?<="NVIM )[^"]+dev[^"]+(?=",)' | sed "s/-/+/g")
  echo $ver

I agree with @dchusovitin, adding a pkgver() function would resolve versioning issues and paru could update the package. AFAIK pushing only pkgver changes on VCS packages is discuraged anyway. This is also how firefox-nightly does it.

Currently, I have a problem with the neovim-qt package because of this package. neovim-qt has the shared library as a dynamic dependency; however, it seems that this library does not get installed along with neovim-nightly-bin (unlike the stable neovim package from the community repo). Please add the msgpack-c package as a dependency to fix this issue.

Yes, package version should be updated every N days. Or at least support dynamic versions (pkgver() + nvim --version)
