📋 PR reviews

  • Open the PR (e.g. Octo <PR url> or Octo pr list or Octo pr edit <PR number>)
  • Start a review with Octo review start or resume a pending review with Octo review resume
  • A new tab will show a panel with changed files and two windows showing the diff on any of them.
  • Change panel entries with ]q and [q or by selecting an entry in the window
  • Add comments with <space>ca or suggestions with <space>sa on single or multiple visual-selected lines
    • A new buffer will appear in the alternate diff window. The cursor will be positioned in the new buffer
    • When ready, save the buffer to commit changes to GitHub
    • Move back to the diff window and move the cursor, the thread buffer will hide
  • Hold the cursor on a line with a comment to show a thread buffer with all the thread comments
    • To modify, delete, react or reply to a comment, move to the window containing the thread buffer
    • Perform any operations as if you were in a regular issue buffer
  • Review pending comments with Octo review comments
    • Use to jump to the selected pending comment
  • If you want to review a specific commit, use Octo review commit to pick a commit. The file panel will get filtered to show only files changed by that commit. Any comments placed on these files will be applied at that specific commit level and will be added to the pending review.
  • When ready, submit the review with Octo review submit
  • A new float window will pop up. Enter the top level review comment and exit to normal mode. Then press <C-m> to submit a comment, <C-a> to approve it or <C-r> to request changes

🍞 Completion

Octo provides a built-in omnifunc completion for issues, PRs and users that you can trigger using <C-x><C-o>. Alternately, if you use nvim-cmp for completion, you can use the cmp-git source to provide issues, PRs, commits and users completion.

The term GitHub color refers to the colors used in the WebUI. The (addition) viewer means the user of the plugin or more precisely the user authenticated via the gh CLI tool used to retrieve the data from GitHub.

🗿 Status Column

If you are using the vim.opt.statuscolumn feature, you can disable Octo's comment marks in the signcolumn and replace them with any customizations on the statuscolumn.

Disable the signcolumn with:

ui = {
    use_signcolumn = false
}

Then, provide a statuscolumn replacement such as:

local function mk_hl(group, sym)
  return table.concat({ "%#", group, "#", sym, "%*" })
end

_G.get_statuscol_octo = function(bufnum, lnum)
  if vim.api.nvim_buf_get_option(bufnum, "filetype") == "octo" then
    if type(octo_buffers) == "table" then
      local buffer = octo_buffers[bufnum]
      if buffer then
        buffer:update_metadata()
        local hl = "OctoSignColumn"
        local metadatas = {buffer.titleMetadata, buffer.bodyMetadata}
        for _, comment_metadata in ipairs(buffer.commentsMetadata) do
          table.insert(metadatas, comment_metadata)
        end
        for _, metadata in ipairs(metadatas) do
          if metadata and metadata.startLine and metadata.endLine then
            if metadata.dirty then
              hl = "OctoDirty"
            else
              hl = "OctoSignColumn"
            end
            if lnum - 1 == metadata.startLine and lnum - 1 == metadata.endLine then
              return mk_hl(hl, "[ ")
            elseif lnum - 1 == metadata.startLine then
              return mk_hl(hl, "┌ ")
            elseif lnum - 1 == metadata.endLine then
              return mk_hl(hl, "└ ")
            elseif metadata.startLine < lnum - 1 and lnum - 1 < metadata.endLine then
              return mk_hl(hl, "│ ")
            end
          end
        end
      end
    end
  end
  return "  "
end

vim.opt.statuscolumn = "%{%v:lua.get_statuscol_octo(bufnr(), v:lnum)%}"

🙋 FAQ

I get a warning saying Cannot request projects v2, missing scope 'read:project'

That's expected. The new support for projects v2 support requires the read:project scope on your GitHub token.

You add the scope by using gh auth refresh -s read:project or you can suppress this warning by setting the following in your config

{
  suppress_missing_scope = {
    projects_v2 = true,
  }
}

How can I disable bubbles for XYZ?

Each text-object that makes use of a bubble (except labels) do use their own highlight group that links per default to the main bubble highlight group. To disable most bubbles at once you can simply link OctoBubble to Normal. To only disable them for a certain plain do the same for the specific sub-group (e.g. OctoUser).

Why do my issue titles or markdown syntax do not get highlighted properly?

The title, body and comments of an issue or PR are special as they get special highlighting applied and is an editable section. Due to the latter property it gets the OctoEditable highlighting via a special signs linehl setting. This takes precedence over the buffer internal highlights. To only get the background highlighted by the editable section, set OctoEditable to a highlight with a background color definition only.

Why am I getting authentication error from gh?

This means that are either using a GITHUB_TOKEN to authenticate or gh is not authenticated.

In case of the former, run:

GITHUB_TOKEN= gh auth login

... and choose a method to authorise access for gh.

gh must store the credentials so it can work in a subshell.

Can I use treesitter markdown parser with octo buffers?

Just add the following lines to your TreeSitter config:

vim.treesitter.language.register('markdown', 'octo')

How can I filter PRs by filter keys that aren't available?

You can use the search command :Octo search [query]. The search syntax and available search terms are available in GitHub documentation.

For example to search for PRs with author you can use this command:

:Octo search is:pr author:pwntester repo:github/codeql

Note: You need to provide the repo, otherwise it will search for every PR by that user.

How to enable autocompletion for issues/prs (#) and users (@)?

Add the following mappings for octo file type:

  • vim.keymap.set("i", "@", "@<C-x><C-o>", { silent = true, buffer = true })
  • vim.keymap.set("i", "#", "#<C-x><C-o>", { silent = true, buffer = true })

How can I disable default key mappings?

Set mappings_disable_default = true in user config.
