fzf :heart: lua

Neovim version

InstallationUsageCommandsCustomizationWiki

Demo

fzf changed my life, it can change yours too, if you allow it.

Rationale

What more can be said about fzf? It is the single most impactful tool for my command line workflow, once I started using fzf I couldn’t see myself living without it.

To understand fzf properly I highly recommended fzf screencast by @samoshkin

This is my take on the original fzf.vim, written in lua for neovim 0.5, it builds on the elegant nvim-fzf as an async interface to create a performant and lightweight fzf client for neovim that rivals any of the new shiny fuzzy finders for neovim.

Why Fzf-Lua

... and not, to name a few, telescope or vim-clap?

As @junegunn himself put it, “because you can and you love fzf”.

If you’re happy with your current setup there is absolutely no reason to switch.

That said, without taking anything away from the greatness of other plugins I found it more efficient having a uniform experience between my shell and my nvim. In addition fzf has been a rock for me since I started using it and hadn’t failed me once, it never hangs and can handle almost anything you throw at it. That, and colorful file icons and git indicators!.

Dependencies

Optional dependencies

Recommended optional utilities:

  • fd - better performance find utility
  • bat - for colorful syntax highlighted previews
  • ripgrep - for better grep-like searches

Installation

Using vim-plug

Plug 'ibhagwan/fzf-lua'
Plug 'vijaymarupudi/nvim-fzf'
Plug 'kyazdani42/nvim-web-devicons'

Using packer.nvim

use { 'ibhagwan/fzf-lua',
  requires = {
    'vijaymarupudi/nvim-fzf',
    'kyazdani42/nvim-web-devicons' } -- optional for icons
}

Note: if you already have fzf installed you do not need to install fzf or fzf.vim, however if you do not have it installed, you only need fzf which can be installed with (fzf.vim is not a requirement nor conflict):

Plug 'junegunn/fzf', { 'do': { -> fzf#install() } }

or with packer.nvim:

use = { 'junegunn/fzf', run = './install --bin', }

Usage

Fzf-lua aims to be as plug and play as possible with sane defaults, you can run any fzf-lua command like this:

:lua require('fzf-lua').files()
-- or using the `FzfLua` vim command:
:FzfLua files

or with arguments:

:lua require('fzf-lua').files({ cwd = '~/.config' })
-- or using the `FzfLua` vim command:
:FzfLua files cwd=~/.config

which can be easily mapped to:

nnoremap <c-P> <cmd>lua require('fzf-lua').files()<CR>

or if using init.lua:

vim.api.nvim_set_keymap('n', '<c-P>',
    "<cmd>lua require('fzf-lua').files()<CR>",
    { noremap = true, silent = true })

Customization

I tried to make it as customizable as possible, if you find you need to change something that isn’t below, open an issue and I’ll do my best to add it.

customization can be achieved by calling the setup() function or individually sending parameters to a builtin command, for exmaple:

:lua require('fzf-lua').files({ fzf_opts = {['--layout'] = 'reverse-list'} })

Consult the list below for available settings:

local actions = require "fzf-lua.actions"
require'fzf-lua'.setup {
  winopts = {
    -- split         = "belowright new",-- open in a split instead?

                                        -- "aboveleft new"   : split above
