  • nvim-cmp setup for R?

    I've found an example config with vim-mucomplete. Most configs I've found for R seem to use ncm-R, ncm2 and nvim-yarp but I could not make those work at all on my system.

  • Does Kate have an 'outline' sidebar for quick navigation to markdown headings, like RStudio has?

    Symbol outline by LSP Client: It can connect to any LSP "server" (runs locally) which implements LSP protocol (https://microsoft.github.io/language-server-protocol/), and supports "stdin" communication. A number of LSP server configuration is provided by default (including R), but user can extend, and override this configuration. As long as the LSP servers are properly installed (kate will start them) and the Kate LSP client configuration is set up properly should work. LSP also provides other IDE-like features (like code completion, jump to symbol definition, diagnostic/linter messages) etc. I found an LSP server for R (https://github.com/REditorSupport/languageserver), you may want to give it a shot.
  • nvim-cmp setup for R?

    You'd need: - hrsh7th/nvim-cmp with set up LSP source (hrsh7th/cmp-nvim-lsp). - neovim/nvim-lspconfig. - R language server installed. This is a regular R package, can be installed from CRAN.
  • Advice for r and rmarkdown using vim?

    Besides a common modern Neovim "IDE setup", some other useful R-specific tools: - languageserver R package for LSP integration. - styler R package for code formatting. Somewhat slow and lacks some features, but seems to be the best current solution.
  • lua-lsp config for r_language_server

    First of all, make sure that you actually use r_language_server. For that, at least install languageserver R package (run R from command line and execute install.packages("languageserver")) and set up r_language_server with nvim-lspconfig. I think after that you should be able to see some diagnostic information.

    The truth is that most editors will use R language server underneath ( https://github.com/REditorSupport/languageserver ) so it's more what layout you prefer than what functionalities an editor has to offer.
  • Neovim configs for data science

    Other plugins/utilities can fill in some of the other gaps. In the screenshot below, I'm using NvimTree to browse files, and I'm also currently using Neovim's native LSP client (in Neovim 0.5.0) with r_language_server installed (configured with the Neovim team's plugin nvim-lspconfig).
