A plugin to visualise and resolve conflicts in neovim. This plugin was inspired by conflict-marker.vim


This plugin is under active development, it should generally work, but you're likely to encounter some bugs during usage.


  • git
  • nvim 0.7+


-- packer.nvim
use {'akinsho/git-conflict.nvim', tag = "*", config = function()

-- lazy.nvim
{'akinsho/git-conflict.nvim', version = "*", config = true}

I recommend using the {tag|version} field of your package manager, so your version of this plugin is only updated when a new tag is pushed as main itself might be unstable.


  default_mappings = true, -- disable buffer local mapping created by this plugin
  default_commands = true, -- disable commands created by this plugin
  disable_diagnostics = false, -- This will disable the diagnostics in a buffer whilst it is conflicted
  list_opener = 'copen', -- command or function to open the conflicts list
  highlights = { -- They must have background color, otherwise the default color will be used
    incoming = 'DiffAdd',
    current = 'DiffText',


  • GitConflictChooseOurs — Select the current changes.
  • GitConflictChooseTheirs — Select the incoming changes.
  • GitConflictChooseBoth — Select both changes.
  • GitConflictChooseNone — Select none of the changes.
  • GitConflictNextConflict — Move to the next conflict.
  • GitConflictPrevConflict — Move to the previous conflict.
  • GitConflictListQf — Get all conflict to quickfix

Listing conflicts

You can list conflicts in the quick fix list using the GitConflictListQf command

quickfix displayed using nvim-pqf


When a conflict is detected by this plugin a User autocommand is fired called GitConflictDetected. When this is resolved another command is fired called GitConflictResolved.

Either of these can be used to run logic whilst dealing with conflicts e.g.

vim.api.nvim_create_autocmd('User', {
  pattern = 'GitConflictDetected',
  callback = function()
    vim.notify('Conflict detected in '..vim.fn.expand('<afile>'))
    vim.keymap.set('n', 'cww', function()


This plugin offers default buffer local mappings inside conflicted files. This is primarily because applying these mappings only to relevant buffers is impossible through global mappings. A user can however disable these by setting default_mappings = false anyway and create global mappings as shown below. The default mappings are:

  • co — choose ours
  • ct — choose theirs
  • cb — choose both
  • c0 — choose none
  • ]x — move to previous conflict
  • [x — move to next conflict

If you would rather not use these then you can specify your own mappings.

require'git-conflict'.setup {
  default_mappings = {
    ours = 'o',
    theirs = 't',
    none = '0',
    both = 'b',
    next = 'n',
    prev = 'p',

or alternatively, set default_mappings = false and apply the mappings yourself

vim.keymap.set('n', 'co', '<Plug>(git-conflict-ours)')
vim.keymap.set('n', 'ct', '<Plug>(git-conflict-theirs)')
vim.keymap.set('n', 'cb', '<Plug>(git-conflict-both)')
vim.keymap.set('n', 'c0', '<Plug>(git-conflict-none)')
vim.keymap.set('n', ']x', '<Plug>(git-conflict-prev-conflict)')
vim.keymap.set('n', '[x', '<Plug>(git-conflict-next-conflict)')


This plugin exposes an API to extract some of the data it collects for other purposes.

    Returns the amount of conflicts in a given buffer.

    {bufnr} (number) Specify the buffer for which you want to know the
                     amount of conflicts (default: current buffer).

    number: The amount of conflicts.


Please read this — This plugin is not intended to do anything other than provide fancy visuals, and some mappings to handle conflict resolution It will not be expanded to become a full git management plugin, there are a zillion plugins that do that already, this won't be one of those.
