  • Vem-Tabline not showing file icons in tabs
    3 projects | /r/vim | 16 Jun 2022
    I am not able to get vem-tabline to show the file icons in the tabs(there are only tab numbers that are displayed), with nvim, and neovide. I have installed vim-devicons, and the icons do show up in my statusline, for which I am using lightline. I have also installed a Nerd Font, so I don't know where I am going wrong. Could someone help me with this?

    the cool yellow line in the bottom of my Vim at the screenshot above is called statusbar. there are some plugins that you can use to make your statusbar looks better. for example, vim airline and vim lightline. I myself use vim airline for my statusbar. to install this plugin, you can use some plugin-manager that you prefer, like vundle or vim-plug. but, if you use Vim 8, you can use vim native package manager. to install vim airline using vim native package manager, do this step :
  • Is there a way to highlight insert mode?
    3 projects | /r/vim | 14 Jan 2022
    I can think of a few ways: 1. :h showmode will show --INSERT-- at the bottom when in insert mode. I'm sure you already have this on, but just to be sure. 1. Lightline can be helpful. The default colour scheme makes the entire line blue. 1. My personal favorite is setting :h guicursor. Insert mode cursor is thin, while normal mode cursor is block. Unfortunately, I use neovim so its default and you have to figure out the code portion yourself. 1. Maybe use autocmd (:h InsertEnter, :h InsertLeave) and write enough vimscript until it works. Suggestions include disabling line numbers in insert mode, change entire background colour, you're limited only by the power of vimscript (or Lua for those nvim doods).
