nvim-lightbulb

VSCode 💡 for neovim's built-in LSP.

Table of contents

Introduction

The plugin shows a lightbulb in the sign column whenever a textDocument/codeAction is available at the current cursor position.

This makes code actions both discoverable and efficient, as code actions can be available even when there are no visible diagnostics (warning, information, hints etc.).

Features

In the screenshot, colorscheme is catppuccin, font is iosevka, programming language is rust

When there is a code action available at the current cursor location, show a lightbulb...

  1. in the sign column
  2. as virtual text
  3. in a floating window

or, change the look of

  1. the number column
  2. the current line

or, get a configured message

  1. as status text, retrievable with require("nvim-lightbulb").get_status_text()

Prerequisites

  • Neovim v0.8.0 and above. Older versions may work but are not tested.
  • Working LSP server configuration.

Installation

Just like any other plugin.

Example using lazy.nvim:

{ 'kosayoda/nvim-lightbulb' }

Example using packer.nvim:

use { 'kosayoda/nvim-lightbulb' }

Example using vim-plug:

Plug 'kosayoda/nvim-lightbulb'

Usage

Place this in your neovim configuration.

require("nvim-lightbulb").setup({
  autocmd = { enabled = true }
})
  • Configuration can be passed to NvimLightbulb.setup, or to NvimLightbulb.update_lightbulb.
  • Any configuration passed to update_lightbulb will override the one in setup.
  • For all options, see the Configuration section.
  • To debug nvim-lightbulb see NvimLightbulb.debug

Configuration

local default_config = {
    -- Priority of the lightbulb for all handlers except float.
    priority = 10,

    -- Whether or not to hide the lightbulb when the buffer is not focused.
    -- Only works if configured during NvimLightbulb.setup
    hide_in_unfocused_buffer = true,

    -- Whether or not to link the highlight groups automatically.
    -- Default highlight group links:
    --   LightBulbSign -> DiagnosticSignInfo
    --   LightBulbFloatWin -> DiagnosticFloatingInfo
    --   LightBulbVirtualText -> DiagnosticVirtualTextInfo
    --   LightBulbNumber -> DiagnosticSignInfo
    --   LightBulbLine -> CursorLine
    -- Only works if configured during NvimLightbulb.setup
    link_highlights = true,

    -- Perform full validation of configuration.
    -- Available options: "auto", "always", "never"
    --   "auto" only performs full validation in NvimLightbulb.setup.
    --   "always" performs full validation in NvimLightbulb.update_lightbulb as well.
    --   "never" disables config validation.
    validate_config = "auto",

    -- Code action kinds to observe.
    -- To match all code actions, set to `nil`.
    -- Otherwise, set to a table of kinds.
