neovim-gtk

GTK ui for neovim written in rust using gtk-rs bindings. With ligatures support. This is a fork of the original project from @daa84.

Note that I haven't set up the wiki pages for this repo yet, so wiki links still go to daa84's wiki repo.

First check build prerequisites

By default to /usr/local:

Or to some custom path:

Build prerequisites

Linux

First install the GTK development packages. On Debian/Ubuntu derivatives this can be done as follows:

apt install libgtk-3-dev

On Fedora:

dnf install atk-devel cairo-devel gdk-pixbuf2-devel glib2-devel gtk3-devel pango-devel

Then install the latest rust compiler, best with the rustup tool. The build command:

cargo build --release

As of writing this (Jan 22, 2022) the packaged rust tools in Fedora also work for building.

Windows

Neovim-gtk can be compiled using MSYS2 GTK packages. In this case use 'windows-gnu' rust toolchain.

SET PKG_CONFIG_PATH=C:\msys64\mingw64\lib\pkgconfig
cargo build --release
