  • Looking for assistance for plugin configuration

  • otter.nvim: LSP features for embedded languages (e.g. code chunks in markdown)
    5 projects | /r/neovim | 28 May 2023
    I view otter.nvim more as a library with tools to use in your config or other plugins. It extract's the code chunks, keeps the otter buffers in sync, provides a nvim-cmp source for completion and forwards modified LSP requests. quarto-nvim on the other hand is specific to quarto documents. So it provides some keybindings to otter functions and sets up the otter.nvim source in the example configuration I provide (, but also does things like `quarto preview`.
  • Spellcheck doesn't work in markdown tables
    2 projects | /r/neovim | 4 Mar 2023
    Are you using treesitter? I think it only defines regular paragraphs and headings as spelling regions (see @spell here: You can add your own query to make another region spell check as well by adding a file to your config like this (example is for the R filetype, same principle for markdown): in which you then add @spell to a query. Check out nvim-treesitter-playground to find the query you need.
  • What do you use to send lines of code to the terminal? (AKA vim-slime alternatives?)
    2 projects | /r/neovim | 8 Feb 2023
    For quarto and plain code files I am still on vim-slime, either using a terminal buffer or a tmux pane. If you find a more neovim centered solution, do let me know in an issue over at ;)

    To edit code in a quarto document you can use my quarto-nvim plugin: and get a headstart of plugins that complement it here:
