    If you use neovim, you can refer to my init.lua; I use vim-go, lsp and other goodies like lspkind to display vscode-like pictograms.

    All the snippets, mapping, formatting and sources part in the above code snippet is expalained nicely in the plugin's documentation. For above code to work, you also have to install lspkind which provides awesome icons in the code completions.

    To style the completion popup, you need to add formatting. Going by the cute little scissors, you probably want to install lsp-kind and add something like this to your cmp.setup
