  • I can't stand using VSCode so I wrote my own (it wasn't easy)

    As well as its own plugins Vim/NeoVim can use VSCode's LSPs, DAPs and extensions either directly or via plugins like CoC[1] and Mason[2].

    I would be surprised if emacs couldn't do the same.

    It is flatly the wrong mindset to think of vim as an IDE. vim is a code editor: get in, make change, get out. Consider vim koans, which are a fun little read. You can throw coc.nvim at Neovim, along with a few other bits to give you a Good Enough setup, but vim isn't and will never be an IDE.
  • Using CoC inlay hints
    1 project | /r/vim | 11 Nov 2023
    I just did a fresh reinstall of CoC, on a newer version of Neovim. I'm now seeing something I hadn't seen before, which CoC calls "inlay hints". They look like this:

    I'm currently on an old setup (using coc and polyglot) and nvim v0.6.1. I'll be updating to a more modern setup within next year, using the native lsp and building nvim more frequently. But that's not today.

    There are some plugins which have the best documentations I have ever seen, but you need to read it from the Vim.

    Example of coc.nvim:

    Actually you can with coc.nvim & coc-sh. So long as shellcheck is also installed and in PATH, it'll integrate with coc/vim just fine.
  • how to set up coc.nvim extension on offline machine?
    2 projects | /r/vim | 7 Jun 2023
    When you install an extension it runs an npm install or yarn, iirc, which is going to be problematic for you being offline. I was going to say you could copy that ~/.config/coc folder directly to the other machine but yeah, Windows, no idea. You see here
  • GCC autocompletion

    You can try, the pre-requisite is to install nodeJS, then to install all the languages LSP. This works for me for Angular, Rust, JavaScript, Vimscript, etc

  • JetBrains' unremovable AI assistant meets irresistible outcry
    5 projects | | 3 Feb 2024
    I suggest looking for blog posts about this, you're gunnuh wanna pick out a plugin manager and stuff. It's kind of like a package manager for neovim. You can install everything manually but usually you manually install a plugin manager and it gives you commands to manage the rest of your plugins.

    These two plugins are the bare minimum in my view.

    Treesitter gives you much better syntax highlighting based on a parser for a given language.

    This plugin helps you connect to a given language LSP quickly with sensible defaults. You more or less pick your language from here and copy paste a snippet, and then install the relevant LSP:

    For Python you'll want pylsp. For JavaScript it will depend on what frontend framework you're using, I probably can't help you there.

    pylsp itself takes some plugins and you'll probably want them.

    Best of luck! Happy hacking.

  • Do I need NeoVIM?
    11 projects | /r/neovim | 7 Dec 2023 This is an autocompletion engine This allows NeoVim to install parsing scripts so NeoVim can do things like code highlighting. Not strictly necessary, but allows you to access a repo of LSP, install them, and configure them for without you actively messing about in config files. Also not strictly necessary, but vastly simplifies LSP setup. This lets the above two plugins talk to each other more easily.

  • Getting Treesitter to work for Windows 10

    Change the compiler to use 'llvm' and install visual studio build tools command line stuff - at least that is what worked for me without problems. If you are using c++ then I would assume you have visual studio installed already. If you need more info follow the treesitter windows support

    1 project | /r/neovim | 5 Jul 2023
    I've followed the official guide for nvim-treesitter support on Windows, but I'm having problems making it work. I keep getting a compilation error for any parser I try to install using TSInstall. If instead I use TSInstallSync I don't get errors but the parser is not correctly installed. My setup uses lazyvim and I installed LLVM using winget to have a C compiler.
  • Neovim can't find C compiler
    1 project | /r/neovim | 2 Jul 2023
    I have read that gcc in windows doesn't always provide the necessary support for treesitter. I have seen ppl prefer clang over gcc in Windows. Please see also Windows support in treesitter's repo. Unfortunately I cannot help further as I don't use Windows for coding, but hope you can deduce something to solve your problem from the above link (if you haven't already read through it).
