GNvim, Neovim GUI aiming for rich code editing experience without any unnecessary web bloat.
GNvim has been my daily driver since August 2018. I try to add new features as I find time for it, and any help is welcome!
For more screenshots, see the wiki.
TL;DR to get started on Ubuntu 18.04 after cloning this repo and assuming you have rust tool chain installed:
$ sudo apt install libgtk-3-dev $ # Run (unoptimized version) without installing $ GNVIM_RUNTIME_PATH=/path/to/gnvim/runtime cargo run $ # Install $ make && sudo make install
$ brew install rust gtk+3 librsvg $ # Install $ make && sudo make install
More externalized features will follow as they are implemented for neovim.
On some systems, Gtk packages doesn't include development files. On Ubuntu, you'll need the following ones:
$ sudo apt install libgtk-3-dev
For other systems, see requirements listed by gtk-rs project here.
There are some benchmarks for internal data structures, but to run those you'll
need nightly rust. To run those benchmarks, use
cargo bench --features=unstable
You're required to have rust tool chain available. Once you have that, clone
this repo and run
make build followed by
sudo make install.
TL;DR: Without installing:
GNVIM_RUNTIME_PATH=/path/to/gnvim/runtime cargo run
GNvim requires some runtime files to be present and loaded by Neovim to work
properly. By default, GNvim will look for these files in
but this can be changed by specifying the
GNVIM_RUNTIME_PATH environment variable.
GNvim will use
nvim to run Neovim by default. If you want to change that,
you can use
--nvim flag (e.g.
For debugging purposes, there is
--print-nvim-cmd flag to tell GNvim to print
the executed nvim command.
gnvim --help for all the cli arguments.
