Colors/Highlights

Color takes precedence over highlight i.e. if color is defined, that will be used to define the highlight instead of highlight.

Mark type highlights are in the format of Scrollbar<MarkType> and Scrollbar<MarkType>Handle. If you wish to define these yourself, add set_highlights = false to the setup.

  • ScrollbarHandle
  • ScrollbarCursorHandle
  • ScrollbarCursor
  • ScrollbarSearchHandle
  • ScrollbarSearch
  • ScrollbarErrorHandle
  • ScrollbarError
  • ScrollbarWarnHandle
  • ScrollbarWarn
  • ScrollbarInfoHandle
  • ScrollbarInfo
  • ScrollbarHintHandle
  • ScrollbarHint
  • ScrollbarMiscHandle
  • ScrollbarMisc
  • ScrollbarGitAdd
  • ScrollbarGitAddHandle
  • ScrollbarGitChange
  • ScrollbarGitChangeHandle
  • ScrollbarGitDelete
  • ScrollbarGitDeleteHandle

Example config with tokyonight.nvim colors

local colors = require("tokyonight.colors").setup()

require("scrollbar").setup({
    handle = {
        color = colors.bg_highlight,
    },
    marks = {
        Search = { color = colors.orange },
        Error = { color = colors.error },
        Warn = { color = colors.warning },
        Info = { color = colors.info },
        Hint = { color = colors.hint },
        Misc = { color = colors.purple },
    }
})

Custom Handlers

One can define custom handlers consisting of a name and a lua function that returns a list of marks as follows:

require("scrollbar.handlers").register(name, handler_function)

handler_function receives the buffer number as argument and must return a list of tables with line, text, type, and level keys. Only the line key is required.

Key Description
line The line number. Required.
text Marker text. Defaults to global settings depending on type.
type The marker type. Default is Misc.
level Marker level. Default is 1.

E.g. the following marks the first three lines in every buffer.

require("scrollbar.handlers").register("my_marks", function(bufnr)
    return {
        { line = 0 },
        { line = 1, text = "x", type = "Warn" },
        { line = 2, type = "Error" }
    }
end)
