@cdkitching: Pandoc-static was indeed available, but it was made obsolete by the introduction of a statically linked pandoc in the repos. Hence, Fauno deleted the package. However, you should be able to get the package name by cloning pandoc-static.

However, shouldn't the name be pandoc-bin, as you're just taking the executable provided by upstream? Static implies that you build the package locally, but statically linked.

Looks like you're right, joelongjimian. Let's do that.

That's not quite true; the total size once installed is still nontrivial. Here's the output from pacman -S pandoc-citeproc for me:

looking for conflicting packages...

Packages (59) ghc-8.0.2-1 haskell-aeson- haskell-aeson-pretty-0.8.5-2


Total Download Size: 52.25 MiB
Total Installed Size: 544.46 MiB
Net Upgrade Size: 493.11 MiB

As far as I can tell most of this comes from ghc.

In any case, it appears that pandoc-citeproc is also provided by the debian package, so I guess it might be easier to add a package_pandoc-citeproc() to your PKGBUILD.

The -static name was already taken by a defunct package. That was the first thing I tried...

Pandoc-citeproc in community pulls in a much smaller set of Haskell packages, so doing this for that package saves you only around 50MB, rather than the 700 you get from this

Could you please give it some meaningful name instead of the nonsensical "lite"... i.e. pandoc-static, pandoc-bin, pandoc-hackage, etc.

any plans for pandoc-citeproc too? same thing happened to that
