A port of gruvbox community theme to lua with treesitter and semantic highlights support!

Prerequisites

Neovim 0.8.0+

Installing

Using packer

use { "ellisonleao/gruvbox.nvim" }

Using lazy.nvim

{ "ellisonleao/gruvbox.nvim", priority = 1000 , config = true, opts = ...}

Using vim-plug

Plug 'ellisonleao/gruvbox.nvim'

Basic Usage

Inside init.vim

set background=dark " or light if you want light mode
colorscheme gruvbox

Inside init.lua

vim.o.background = "dark" -- or "light" for light mode
vim.cmd([[colorscheme gruvbox]])

Configuration

Additional settings for gruvbox are:

-- Default options:
require("gruvbox").setup({
  terminal_colors = true, -- add neovim terminal colors
  undercurl = true,
  underline = true,
  bold = true,
  italic = {
    strings = true,
    emphasis = true,
    comments = true,
    operators = false,
    folds = true,
  },
  strikethrough = true,
  invert_selection = false,
  invert_signs = false,
  invert_tabline = false,
  invert_intend_guides = false,
  inverse = true, -- invert background for search, diffs, statuslines and errors
  contrast = "", -- can be "hard", "soft" or empty string
  palette_overrides = {},
  overrides = {},
  dim_inactive = false,
  transparent_mode = false,
})
vim.cmd("colorscheme gruvbox")

VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure to call setup() BEFORE calling the colorscheme command, to use your custom configs

Overriding

Palette

You can specify your own palette colors. For example:

require("gruvbox").setup({
    palette_overrides = {
        bright_green = "#990000",
    }
})
vim.cmd("colorscheme gruvbox")

Highlight groups

If you don't enjoy the current color for a specific highlight group, now you can just override it in the setup. For example:

require("gruvbox").setup({
    overrides = {
        SignColumn = {bg = "#ff9900"}
    }
})
vim.cmd("colorscheme gruvbox")

It also works with treesitter groups and lsp semantic highlight tokens

require("gruvbox").setup({
    overrides = {
        ["@lsp.type.method"] = { bg = "#ff9900" },
        ["@comment.lua"] = { bg = "#000000" },
    }
})
vim.cmd("colorscheme gruvbox")

Please note that the override values must follow the attributes from the highlight group map, such as:

  • fg - foreground color
  • bg - background color
  • bold - true or false for bold font
  • italic - true or false for italic font

Other values can be seen in synIDattr
