overseer.nvim

A task runner and job management plugin for Neovim

Features

  • Built-in support for many task frameworks (make, npm, cargo, .vscode/tasks.json, etc)
  • Simple integration with vim.diagnostics and quickfix
  • UI for viewing and managing tasks
  • Quick controls for common actions (restart task, rerun on save, or user-defined functions)
  • Extreme customizability. Very easy to attach custom logic to tasks
  • Define and run complex multi-stage workflows
  • Support for preLaunchTask when used with nvim-dap

Requirements

Installation

overseer supports all the usual plugin managers

require('packer').startup(function()
    use {
      'stevearc/overseer.nvim',
      config = function() require('overseer').setup() end
    }
end)
require "paq" {
    {'stevearc/overseer.nvim'};
}
Plug 'stevearc/overseer.nvim'
call dein#add('stevearc/overseer.nvim')
git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/stevearc/overseer.nvim.git ~/.vim/bundle/
git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/stevearc/overseer.nvim.git \
  "${XDG_DATA_HOME:-$HOME/.local/share}"/nvim/site/pack/overseer/start/overseer.nvim

Quick start

Add the following to your init.lua

require('overseer').setup()

To get started, all you need to know is :OverseerRun to select and start a task, and :OverseerToggle to open the task list.

If you don't see any tasks from :OverseerRun, it might mean that your task runner is not yet supported. There is currently support for VS Code tasks, make, npm, cargo, and some others. If yours is not supported, (request support here).

If you want to define custom tasks for your project, I'd recommend starting with the tutorials.
