Installation

Requirements

Install

use { 'davidgranstrom/scnvim' }
Plug 'davidgranstrom/scnvim'

Verify

Run :checkhealth scnvim to verify that the installation was successful.

Usage

Configuration

scnvim uses lua for configuration. Below is an example that you can copy and paste to your init.lua.

If you are using init.vim for configuration you will need to surround the call to scnvim.setup in a lua-heredoc:

" file: init.vim
lua << EOF
require('scnvim').setup({})
EOF

Example

local scnvim = require 'scnvim'
local map = scnvim.map
local map_expr = scnvim.map_expr

scnvim.setup({
  keymaps = {
    ['<M-e>'] = map('editor.send_line', {'i', 'n'}),
    ['<C-e>'] = {
      map('editor.send_block', {'i', 'n'}),
      map('editor.send_selection', 'x'),
    },
    ['<CR>'] = map('postwin.toggle'),
    ['<M-CR>'] = map('postwin.toggle', 'i'),
    ['<M-L>'] = map('postwin.clear', {'n', 'i'}),
    ['<C-k>'] = map('signature.show', {'n', 'i'}),
    ['<F12>'] = map('sclang.hard_stop', {'n', 'x', 'i'}),
    ['<leader>st'] = map('sclang.start'),
    ['<leader>sk'] = map('sclang.recompile'),
    ['<F1>'] = map_expr('s.boot'),
    ['<F2>'] = map_expr('s.meter'),
  },
  editor = {
    highlight = {
      color = 'IncSearch',
    },
  },
  postwin = {
    float = {
      enabled = true,
    },
  },
})

Start

Open a new file in nvim with a .scd or .sc extension and type :SCNvimStart to start SuperCollider.

Commands

Command Description
SCNvimStart Start SuperCollider
SCNvimStop Stop SuperCollider
SCNvimRecompile Recompile SCClassLibrary
SCNvimGenerateAssets Generate tags, syntax, snippets etc.
SCNvimHelp <subject> Open help for <subject> (By default mapped to K)
SCNvimStatusLine Start to poll server status to be displayed in the status line

Additional setup

Run :SCNvimGenerateAssets after starting SuperCollider to generate syntax highlighting and tags.

The plugin should work "out of the box", but if you want even more fine-grained control please have a look at the configuration section in the wiki.

Documentation

Extensions

The extension system provides additional functionalities and integrations. If you have made a scnvim extension, please open a PR and add it to this list!

  • fzf-sc
    • Combine the magic of fuzzy searching with the magic of SuperCollider in Neovim
  • nvim-supercollider-piano
    • Play SuperCollider synths using your (computer) keyboard in neovim!
  • scnvim-tmux
    • Redirect post window ouput to a tmux pane.
  • scnvim-logger
    • Log post window output to a file (example scnvim extension)
  • telescope-scdoc
    • Use Telescope to fuzzy find documentation

Supported platforms

  • Linux
  • macOS
  • Windows (tested with nvim-qt and nvim.exe in Windows PowerShell)

Note to Windows users

The path to sclang.exe needs to be specified in the config:

local scnvim = require('scnvim')
scnvim.setup({
  sclang = {
    cmd = 'C:/Program Files/SuperCollider-3.12.2/sclang.exe'
  },
})

Modify the sclang.cmd to point to where SuperCollider is installed on your system.

Additionally, to be able to boot the server you will need to add the following to startup.scd:

if (\SCNvim.asClass.notNil) {
  Server.program = (Platform.resourceDir +/+ "scsynth.exe").quote;
}
