Comment 1 Jeremey Hustman 2013-08-23 15:08:26 EDT
I've managed to workaround through the Fedora Forums:
Comment 2 Jan Včelák 2013-09-18 06:44:08 EDT
I would love to see Lua support in Vim as well. There are some vim plugins which need it, e.g. neocomplete.

It adds just about 20kB to the binaries:

% du -bs *.extracted
2236072 vim-enhanced-7.4.027-2.fc19.x86_64.rpm.extracted
2257456 vim-enhanced-7.4.027-2.1.fc19.x86_64.rpm.extracted

Karsten, please, can you consider adding it?

Created attachment 799316 [details]
patch enabling Lua interpreter in spec (F19)

Adding a patch to make Vim maintainer's life easier if this RFE is accepted.
Comment 4 Paulo Fidalgo 2013-12-30 05:04:58 EST
Watching the progress since the need of lua for neocomplete. Until this become official I need to compile my own VIM version.
Comment 5 Johnny Robeson 2014-02-11 21:26:42 EST
is there any issues with adding this feature Karsten?
Comment 7 kealthou 2014-02-28 05:45:30 EST
Can I ask you to turn on --with-luajit option?
Comment 8 virtualeyes 2014-07-08 08:28:02 EDT
+1 on the --with-luajit request.

Also, when will we be seeing a Lua enabled Vim in updates repo? July 8th today, have been on 179-1 for several months here with Fedora 20.

Why is lua disabled again in Fedora 22?

Vim for Fedora 22 is not built with Lua support. Was it an intentional change? If not, could you please fix it through update channel?
