Install In One Command!

Make sure you have the release version of Neovim (0.7+).


bash <(curl -s

To run the install script without any interaction you can pass the -y flag to automatically install all dependencies and have no prompts. This is particularly useful in automated installations.

The same way, you can use --no-install-dependencies to skip the dependency installation.

Windows (Powershell 7+):

Powershell v7+ is required for this script. For instructions on how to install, click here.

Invoke-WebRequest -UseBasicParsing | Invoke-Expression

Automatic LSP support

By default, most supported language servers will get automatically installed once you open the supported file-type, e.g, opening a Python file for the first time will install Pyright and configure it automatically for you.

Configuration file

To install plugins configure LunarVim use the config.lua located here: ~/.config/lvim/config.lua


-- general
lvim.format_on_save = true
lvim.colorscheme = "onedarker"

lvim.leader = "space"
-- add your own keymapping
lvim.keys.normal_mode["<C-s>"] = ":w<cr>"
-- unmap a default keymapping
-- lvim.keys.normal_mode["<C-Up>"] = ""
-- edit a default keymapping
-- lvim.keys.normal_mode["<C-q>"] = ":q<cr>"
-- set keymap with custom opts
-- lvim.keys.insert_mode["po"] = {'<ESC>', { noremap = true }}

-- Use which-key to add extra bindings with the leader-key prefix
-- lvim.builtin.which_key.mappings["P"] = { "<cmd>Telescope projects<CR>", "Projects" }

-- Configure builtin plugins = true = true = true

-- Treesitter parsers change this to a table of the languages you want i.e. {"java", "python", javascript}
lvim.builtin.treesitter.ensure_installed = "maintained"
lvim.builtin.treesitter.ignore_install = { "haskell" }

-- Disable virtual text
lvim.lsp.diagnostics.virtual_text = false

-- Select which servers should be configured manually. Requires `:LvimCacheReset` to take effect.
-- See the full default list `:lua print(vim.inspect(lvim.lsp.override))`
vim.list_extend(lvim.lsp.automatic_configuration.skipped_servers, { "pyright" })

-- set a formatter, this will override the language server formatting capabilities (if it exists)
local formatters = require "lvim.lsp.null-ls.formatters"
formatters.setup {
  { command = "black" },
    command = "prettier",
    ---@usage specify which filetypes to enable. By default a providers will attach to all the filetypes it supports.
    filetypes = { "typescript", "typescriptreact" },

-- set additional linters
local linters = require "lvim.lsp.null-ls.linters"
linters.setup {
    command = "eslint_d",
    ---@usage specify which filetypes to enable. By default a providers will attach to all the filetypes it supports.
    filetypes = { "javascript", "javascriptreact" },

lvim.plugins = {
    {"folke/tokyonight.nvim"}, {
        config = function() require"lsp_signature".on_attach() end,
