It's not as simple as it could be at the moment. I'll create a rock
very soon, although it'll still require that you have the Gumbo
library installed.

Google only made the Gumbo code public a few months back, so it's
probably not available as a distro package yet, but the
instructions[1] are quite easy to follow.

You won't need to edit any configs, but you will need to install a
long list of bootstrap dependencies until Google do a proper release
(which is planned).

>From memory, this should be all you need:

  sudo apt-get install automake autoconf libtool gcc make pkg-config wget

Then you can do:

  tar xzf master.tar.gz
  cd gumbo-parser-master

and follow the readme[1] from there.


If that sounds like too much trouble, it might be best to wait a while
for a package+rock.
