A really fast & stable neovim GUI could be accelated by GPU.
See the speed from the screenshot:
glrnvim combines OpenGL (possibly), Rust and NeoVIM together, to make the fastest, simplest neovim GUI.
The above things are not totally lie. The intention of this project was that I couldn't find a standalone neovim GUI fast and stable like the old gvim. All the existing neovim GUIs are either not fast enough (what do you expect from Electron?) or not stable enough. I have been using neovim-gnome-terminal-wrapper for a long time and it is much better than any other fancy GUIs. The only thing is, it doesn't support other terminals than gnome-terminal.
glrnvim wraps nvim with your favourite terminal into a standalone, non-fancy but daily-usable neovim GUI.
glrnvim from the AUR.
cargo install cargo-deb
debpackage system-wide by running the following command from the project's root directory.
cargo deb --install
Modify example config and copy it to your
glrnvimas the git editor for commit message
git config --global core.editor "glrnvim --nofork"
if exists('g:glrnvim_gui') "do something endif
Color scheme doesn't work well with urxvt backend.
set termguicolors to achieve an easy and better color scheme support. However, that requires the terminal to support true colors. Urxvt never has an official release to support it. Although the true color patch has been merged many years ago. If you are using Arch, just install rxvt-unicode-cvs from aur.
