Features and TODOs

https://github.com/Bekaboo/dropbar.nvim/assets/76579810/e8c1ac26-0321-4762-9975-b20fc3098c5a

  • Opening drop-down menus or go to definition with a single mouse click

    mouse-click

  • Pick mode for quickly selecting a component in the winbar with shortcuts

    pick-mode

  • Automatically truncating long components

    auto-truncate

    • Better truncation when winbar is still too long after shortening all components
  • Multiple backends that support fall-backs

    dropbar.nvim comes with five builtin sources:

    • lsp: gets symbols from language servers using nvim's builtin LSP framework

    • markdown: a custom incremental parser that gets symbol information about markdown headings

    • path: gets current file path

    • treesitter: gets symbols from treesitter parsers using nvim's builtin treesitter integration

    • terminal: easily switch terminal buffers using the dropdown menu

    To make a new source yourself, see making a new source.

    For source fall-backs support, see bar options.

  • Zero config & Zero dependency

    dropbar.nvim does not require nvim-lspconfig, nvim-treesitter or any third-party UI libraries to work. As long as the language server or the treesitter parser is installed, it should work just fine.

    Optionally, you can install telescope-fzf-native to add fuzzy search support to dropbar menus.

  • Drop-down menu components and winbar symbols that response to mouse/cursor hovering: hover

    • This features requires :h mousemoveevent to be enabled.
  • Preview symbols in their source windows when hovering over them in the drop-down menu

    preview

  • Reorient the source window on previewing or after jumping to a symbol

  • Add scrollbar to the menu when the symbol list is too long

    scrollbar

  • Background color support* thanks @theofabilous

    background-color

  • Add preview for symbols shown in the winbar

  • Preview symbols (files) from path source

  • Support visual mode selection to select/delete multiple symbols

  • Ability to hide/show the winbar on each window separately

  • Add more tests for the sources path, lsp, and treesitter

  • Configurable scrollbar appearance

  • Update winbar sources dynamically

  • More responsive mouse clicking & hovering in insert (fzf) mode, like in normal mode

Requirements

  • Neovim Nightly (>= 0.10.0-dev)
  • Optional
    • nvim-web-devicons, if you want to see icons for different filetypes
    • telescope-fzf-native, if you want fuzzy search support
    • Working language server installation for the lsp source to work
    • Working treesitter parser installation for the treesitter source to work

Installation

  • Using lazy.nvim

    require('lazy').setup({
      {
        'Bekaboo/dropbar.nvim',
        -- optional, but required for fuzzy finder support
        dependencies = {
          'nvim-telescope/telescope-fzf-native.nvim'
        }
      }
    })
    
  • Using packer.nvim

    require('packer').startup(function(use)
      use({
        'Bekaboo/dropbar.nvim',
        requires = {
          'nvim-telescope/telescope-fzf-native.nvim'
        }
      })
    end)
    
  • Using native package manager

    mkdir -p ~/.local/share/nvim/site/pack/packages/
    git clone https://github.com/Bekaboo/dropbar.nvim ~/.local/share/nvim/site/pack/packages/start/dropbar.nvim
    

    Lazy-loading is unneeded as it is already done in plugin/dropbar.lua.

Usage

  • Basics
    • Moves the cursor around and see the winbar reflects your current context
  • Mouse support
    • Click on a component in the winbar to open a drop-down menu of its siblings
    • Click on an entry in the drop-down menu to go to its location
    • Click on the indicator in the drop-down menu to open a sub-menu of its children
  • Pick mode
    • Use require('dropbar.api').pick() to enter interactive pick mode or require('dropbar.api').pick(<idx>) to directly select a component at idx.
    • Inside interactive pick mode, press the corresponding pivot shown before each component to select it
  • Fuzzy finder
    • Use dropbar_menu_t:fuzzy_find_open() to interactively filter, select and preview entries using fzf
    • <Esc>: exit fzf mode
    • <Up>/<Down>: move the cursor in fzf mode
    • <CR>: call the on_click callback of the symbol under the cursor
  • Default keymaps in drop-down menu
    • <LeftMouse>: call the on_click callback of the symbol at the mouse click
    • <CR>: find the first clickable symbol in the current drop-down menu entry and call its on_click callback
    • i: enter fzf mode from the menu
    • q / <Esc>: close current menu
    • To disable, remap or add new keymaps in the drop-down menu, see menu options

Usage with vim.ui.select

Dropbar can be used as a drop-in replacement for Neovim's builtin vim.ui.select menu.

To enable this functionality, simply replace vim.ui.select with dropbar.utils.menu.select:

vim.ui.select = require('dropbar.utils.menu').select

General

These options live under opts.general and are used to configure the general behavior of the plugin:

  • opts.general.enable: boolean|fun(buf: integer, win: integer): boolean
    • Controls whether to enable the plugin for the current buffer and window
    • If a function is provided, it will be called with the current bufnr and winid and should return a boolean
    • Default:
      function(buf, win)
        return vim.fn.win_gettype(win) == ''
          and vim.wo[win].winbar == ''
          and vim.bo[buf].bt == ''
          and (
            vim.bo[buf].ft == 'markdown'
            or (
              buf
                and vim.api.nvim_buf_is_valid(buf)
                and (pcall(vim.treesitter.get_parser, buf, vim.bo[buf].ft))
                and true
              or false
            )

        'BufWinEnter',
        'BufWritePost',
      }
      
  • opts.general.update_interval: number
    • Wait for a short time before updating the winbar, if another update request is received within this time, the previous request will be cancelled, this improves the performance when the user is holding down a key (e.g. 'j') to scroll the window
    • If you encounter performance issues when scrolling the window, try setting this option to a number slightly larger than 1000 / key_repeat_rate
    • Default: 0
  • opts.general.update_events.win: string[]
    • List of events that should trigger an update on the dropbar attached to a single window

        'WinResized',
      }
      
  • opts.general.update_events.buf: string[]
    • List of events that should trigger an update on all dropbars attached to a buffer
    • Default:
      {
        'BufModifiedSet',
        'FileChangedShellPost',
        'TextChanged',
        'TextChangedI',
      }
      
  • opts.general.update_events.global: string[]
    • List of events that should trigger an update of all dropbars in current nvim session

API

dropbar.nvim exposes a few functions in lua/dropbar/api.lua that can be used to interact with the winbar or the drop-down menu:

  • get_dropbar(buf: integer?, win: integer): dropbar_t? prefer utils.bar.get()
    • Get the dropbar associated with the given buffer and window
    • For more information about the dropbar_t type, see dropbar_t
  • get_current_dropbar(): dropbar_t? prefer utils.bar.get_current()
    • Get the dropbar associated with the current buffer and window
  • get_dropbar_menu(win: integer): dropbar_menu_t? prefer utils.menu.get()
    • Get the drop-down menu associated with the given window
    • For more information about the dropbar_menu_t type, see dropbar_menu_t
  • get_current_dropbr_menu(): dropbar_menu_t? prefer utils.menu.get_current()
    • Get the drop-down menu associated with the current window
  • goto_context_start(count: integer?)
    • Move the cursor to the start of the current context
    • If count is 0 or nil, go to the start of current context, or the start at previous context if cursor is already at the start of current context
    • If count is positive, goto the start of count previous context
  • select_next_context()
    • Open the menu of current context to select the next context
  • pick(idx: integer?)
    • Pick a component from current winbar
    • If idx is nil, enter interactive pick mode to select a component
    • If idx is a number, directly pick the component at that index if it exists
  • fuzzy_find_toggle(opts: table?)

    • If only opts.buf is specified, return all dropbars attached the buffer;
    • If both opts.win and opts.buf are specified, return the dropbar attached the window that contains the buffer;
    • If neither opts.win nor opts.buf is specified, return all dropbars in the form of table<buf, table<win, dropbar_t>>
  • utils.bar.get_current(): dropbar_t?
    • Get the dropbar associated with the current buffer and window

Menu Utility Functions

Defined in lua/dropbar/utils/menu.lua.

  • utils.menu.get(opts): (dropbar_menu_t?)|table<integer, dropbar_menu_t>
    • Get dropbar menu
    • If opts.win is specified, return the dropbar menu attached the window;

    • Opt-in replacement for vim.ui.select
    • Supports non-string items by formatting via the opts.format_item callback

Highlighting

dropbar.nvim defines the following highlight groups that, override them in your colorscheme to change the appearance of the drop-down menu, the names should be self-explanatory:

dropbar_t:update() update dropbar componentsdropbar_symbol_t[] and redraw the dropbar afterwards
dropbar_t:pick_mode_wrap(fn: fun(...): T?, ...): T? executes fn with parameters ... in pick mode
dropbar_t:pick(idx: integer?) pick a component from dropbar in interactive pick mode if idx is not given; else pick the idxth component directly
dropbar_t:update_current_context_hl(bar_idx: integer) Update the current context highlight hl-DropBarCurrentContext and hl-DropBarIconCurrentContext assuming the bar_idx th symbol is clicked in the winbar
dropbar_t:update_hover_hl(col: integer?) Highlight the symbol at col as if the mouse is hovering on it
dropbar_t:__tostring(): string meta method to convert dropbar_t to its string representation

bar dropbar_t? the dropbardropbar_t the symbol belongs to, if the symbol is shown inside a winbar
menu dropbar_menu_t? menudropbar_menu_t associated with the symbol, if the symbol is shown inside a winbar
entry dropbar_menu_entry_t? the dropbar menu entrydropbar_menu_entry_t the symbol belongs to, if the symbol is shown inside a menu
children dropbar_symbol_t[]? children of the symbol (e.g. a children of a function symbol can be local variables inside the function)
siblings dropbar_symbol_t[]? siblings of the symbol (e.g. a sibling of a symbol that represents a level 4 markdown heading can be other headings with level 4)
bar_idx integer? index of the symbol in the dropbardropbar_t
entry_idx integer? index of the symbol in the menu entrydropbar_menu_entry_t
sibling_idx integer? index of the symbol in the siblings
range {start: {line: integer, character: integer}, end: {line: integer, character: integer}} range of the symbol in the source window
on_click fun(this: dropbar_symbol_t, min_width: integer?, n_clicks: integer?, button: string?, modifiers: string?)|false? callback to invoke when the symbol is clicked, force disable on_click when the value if set to false
callback_idx integer? idx of the on_click callback in _G.dropbar.callbacks[buf][win], use this to index callback function because bar_idx could change after truncate
opts dropbar_symbol_opts_t? options passed to winbar_symbol_t:new() when the symbols is created
data table? any extra data associated with the symbol

dropbar_symbol_t has the following methods:

Method Description

Making a New Source

A dropbar_source_t instance is just a table with get_symbols field set to a function that returns an array of dropbar_symbol_t instances given the buffer number, the window id, and the cursor position.

We have seen a simple example of a custom source in the default config of opts.bar.sources where the second source is set to a combination of lsp/treesitter/markdown sources using the utils.source.fallback() factory function, which simply returns a table containing a get_symbols() function where each source passed to utils.source.fallback() is queried and the first non-empty result get from the sources is returned as the result of the combined source.

Here is another example of a custom source that will always return two symbols saying 'Hello' and 'dropbar' with highlights 'hl-Keyword' and 'hl-Title' and a smiling face shown in 'hl-WarningMsg' at the start of the first symbol; clicking on the first symbol will show a notification message saying 'Have you smiled today?', followed by the smiling face icon used in the in dropbar symbol:

local bar = require('dropbar.bar')
local custom_source = {
  get_symbols = function(_, _, _)
    return {
      bar.dropbar_symbol_t:new({
        icon = ' ',
        icon_hl = 'WarningMsg',
        name = 'Hello',
        name_hl = 'Keyword',
        on_click = function(self)
          vim.notify('Have you smiled today? ' .. self.icon)
        end,
      }),
      bar.dropbar_symbol_t:new({
        name = 'dropbar',
        name_hl = 'Title',
      }),
    }
  end,
}

Add this source to opts.bar.sources table to see it in action:

require('dropbar').setup({
  bar = {
    sources = {
      custom_source,
    },
  },
})

Making a Source With Drop-Down Menus

The following example shows how to make a source that returns two symbols with the first symbol having a drop-down menu with a single entry saying 'World':

local bar = require('dropbar.bar')
local menu = require('dropbar.menu')
local custom_source = {
  get_symbols = function(_, _, _)
    return {
      bar.dropbar_symbol_t:new({
        icon = ' ',
        icon_hl = 'WarningMsg',
        name = 'Hello',
        name_hl = 'Keyword',
        on_click = function(self)
          self.menu = menu.dropbar_menu_t:new({
            entries = {
              menu.dropbar_menu_entry_t:new({
                components = {
                  bar.dropbar_symbol_t:new({
                    icon = ' ',
                    icon_hl = 'WarningMsg',
                    name = 'World',
                    name_hl = 'Keyword',
                    on_click = function(sym)
                      vim.notify('Have you smiled today? ' .. sym.icon)
                    end,
                  }),
                },
              }),
            },
          })
          self.menu:toggle()
        end,
      }),
      bar.dropbar_symbol_t:new({
        name = 'dropbar',
        icon = ' ',
        name_hl = 'Special',
        icon_hl = 'Error',
      }),
    }
  end,
}

Default on_click() Callback

dropbar_symbol_t:new() defines a default on_click() callback if non is provided.

The default on_click() callback will look for these fields in the symbol instance and create a drop-down menu accordingly on click, for more information about these fields see dropbar_symbol_t.

For creating the drop-down menu:

  • dropbar_symbol_t.siblings
  • dropbar_symbol_t.sibling_idx
  • dropbar_symbol_t.children

For jumping to the symbol or previewing it:

  • dropbar_symbol_t.range
  • dropbar_symbol_t.win
  • dropbar_symbol_t.buf

The following example shows a source that utilizes the default on_click() callback:

local bar = require('dropbar.bar')
local custom_source = {
  get_symbols = function(buf, win, _)
    return {
      bar.dropbar_symbol_t:new({
        name = 'Section 1',
        name_hl = 'Keyword',
        siblings = {
          bar.dropbar_symbol_t:new({
            name = 'Section 2',
            name_hl = 'WarningMsg',
          }),
          bar.dropbar_symbol_t:new({
            name = 'Section 3',
            name_hl = 'Error',
          }),
          bar.dropbar_symbol_t:new({
            name = 'Section 4',
            name_hl = 'String',
            children = {
              bar.dropbar_symbol_t:new({
                buf = buf,
                win = win,
                name = 'Section 4.1',
                name_hl = 'String',
                -- Will jump to line 3, col 4 (0-indexed) when clicked in the
                -- menu
                range = {
                  start = { line = 3, character = 4 },
                  ['end'] = { line = 5, character = 6 },
                }
              }),
            },
          }),
        },
      }),
    }
  end,
}

To see this source in action add it to opts.bar.sources table:

require('dropbar').setup({
  bar = {
    sources = {
      custom_source,
    },
  },
})

Lazy-Loading Expensive Fields

If the symbol fields siblings or children are expensive to compute, you can use meta-tables to lazy-load them, so that they are only computed when a menu is opened:

local bar = require('dropbar.bar')
local custom_source = {
  get_symbols = function(_, _, _)
    return {
      bar.dropbar_symbol_t:new(setmetatable({
        name = 'Section 1',
        name_hl = 'Keyword',
      }, {
        __index = function(self, key)
          if key == 'siblings' then
            self[siblings] = -- [[ compute siblings ]]
            return self[siblings]
          end
          if key == 'children' then
            self[children] = -- [[ compute children ]]
            return self[children]
          end
          -- ...
        end,
      })),
    }
  end,
}

To see concrete examples of lazy-loading see lua/dropbar/sources.
