Configuration

Simply pass the custom configuration in to setup method

-- following option will hide the buffer when it is closed instead deleting
-- the buffer. This is important to reuse the last terminal buffer
-- IF the option is not set, plugin will open a new terminal every single time
vim.o.hidden = true

require('nvim-terminal').setup({
    window = {
        -- Do `:h :botright` for more information
        -- NOTE: width or height may not be applied in some "pos"
        position = 'botright',

        -- Do `:h split` for more information
        split = 'sp',

        -- Width of the terminal
        width = 50,

        -- Height of the terminal
        height = 15,
    },

    -- keymap to disablesb all the default keymaps
    disable_default_keymaps = false,

    -- keymap to toggle open and close terminal window
    toggle_keymap = '<leader>;',

    -- increase the window width by when you hit the keymap
    window_height_change_amount = 2,

    -- increase the window height by when you hit the keymap
    window_width_change_amount = 2,

    -- keymap to increase the window width
    increase_width_keymap = '<leader><leader>+',

    -- keymap to decrease the window width
    decrease_width_keymap = '<leader><leader>-',

    -- keymap to increase the window height
    increase_height_keymap = '<leader>+',

    -- keymap to decrease the window height
    decrease_height_keymap = '<leader>-',

    terminals = {
        -- keymaps to open nth terminal
        {keymap = '<leader>1'},
        {keymap = '<leader>2'},
        {keymap = '<leader>3'},
        {keymap = '<leader>4'},
        {keymap = '<leader>5'},
    },
})

Add Keymaps Manually

nvim-terminal adds a globle variable called NTGlobal. When you call require('nvim-terminal').setup() it adds terminal and window properties to NTGlobal

vim.api.nvim_set_keymap('n', '<leader>t', ':lua NTGlobal["terminal"]:toggle()<cr>', silent)
vim.api.nvim_set_keymap('n', '<leader>1', ':lua NTGlobal["terminal"]:open(1)<cr>', silent)
vim.api.nvim_set_keymap('n', '<leader>+', ':lua NTGlobal["window"]:change_height(2)<cr>', silent)
vim.api.nvim_set_keymap('n', '<leader>-', ':lua NTGlobal["window"]:change_height(-2)<cr>', silent)

PRO MODE

Default Terminal

terminal = require('nvim-terminal').DefaultTerminal;

local silent = { silent = true }

vim.api.nvim_set_keymap('n', '<leader>t', ':lua terminal:toggle()<cr>', silent)
vim.api.nvim_set_keymap('n', '<leader>1', ':lua terminal:open(1)<cr>', silent)
vim.api.nvim_set_keymap('n', '<leader>2', ':lua terminal:open(2)<cr>', silent)
vim.api.nvim_set_keymap('n', '<leader>3', ':lua terminal:open(3)<cr>', silent)

Customized Window

local Terminal = require('nvim-terminal.terminal')
local Window = require('nvim-terminal.window')

local window = Window:new({
    position = 'botright',
    split = 'sp',
    width = 50,
    height = 15
})

terminal = Terminal:new(window)
