A Mix (Elixir) wrapper for Neovim.

This plugin adds a :Mix (or just :M), which calls any arbitrary Mix command.

If you know how to use Mix at the command line, you know how to use :Mix.

It's vaguely akin to :!mix but with some improvements:

  • Autocompletion for available Mix commands inside the current repository.
  • Choose the type of window you want to show the output (WiP).
  • Support Telescope integration to navigate through package's documentation (WiP).
  • Run async commands inside Neovim (WiP).


Getting Started

This section should guide you to run your first Mix command with :Mix.

Neovim 0.7 or higher is required for mix.nvim to work.

Recommended dependencies


Using packer.nvim

use { 'brendalf/mix.nvim', requires = { "nvim-lua/plenary.nvim" } }

Using vim-plug

Plug 'nvim-lua/plenary.nvim'
Plug 'brendalf/mix.nvim'

Using dein

call dein#add('nvim-lua/plenary.nvim')
call dein#add('brendalf/mix.nvim')

After installing, you need to initialize mix.nvim with the setup function.

For example:



The basic usage is :Mix <command><cr>.

Type :Mix help to see if mix.nvim is installed correctly.

If you have hrsh7th/cmp-cmdline installed:

  • Type :Mix and press space to see the available Mix commands (this could take a couple seconds in the first run).
  • With the commands loaded you can start typing to get a smooth auto complete experience.

If you are using neovim (or lunarvim) without any cmd plugin:

  • Type :Mix, press space, and then press tab to see the available Mix commands.
  • Use tab to cycle through the commands or type the whole command wording.

As mentioned above, loading the list of commands in the first time can take some time, because mix.nvim is actually reading them from the output of mix help.

To enable a smooth experience, we save the list of commands internally after the initial loading.

To update the cache, you can call :MixRefreshCompletions.
