Comment 1 Jeremey Hustman 2013-08-23 19:08:26 UTC
I've managed to workaround through the Fedora Forums:

Comment 2 Jan Včelák 2013-09-18 10:44:08 UTC
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?

Comment 3 Jan Včelák 2013-09-18 10:48:17 UTC
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 10:04:58 UTC
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 2014-02-12 02:26:42 UTC
is there any issues with adding this feature Karsten?

Comment 7 kealthou 2014-02-28 10:45:30 UTC
Can I ask you to turn on --with-luajit option?

Comment 8 virtualeyes 2014-07-08 12:28:02 UTC
+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?

Comment 19 Parthkumar Bera 2015-06-11 13:51:59 UTC
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?

Comment 20 Sebastian 2015-07-06 13:51:44 UTC
Would it be possible to add lua support again in the Fedora 22 build?
