Better Diagnostic Virtual Text

A Neovim plugin for enhanced diagnostic virtual text display, aiming to provide better performance and customization options.

NOTE: This code is currently in the testing phase and may contain bugs. If you encounter any issues, please let me know. I can't found it alone, so please help me to improve it.

Features

  • Ease of Use: Effortless setup and configuration.
  • Beautiful UI: Customizable colors, icons, and more for an aesthetically pleasing interface.
  • Auto-fix Capability: Automatically adjusts to fit the current window size for seamless display.
  • Toggleable: Easily enable or disable using vim.diagnostic.enable/disable commands.
  • Performance: Optimized for speed and efficiency, updating virtual text only when necessary.

Preview

  • opts.inline = false. Show all diagnostics

Installation

You need to set vim.diagnostic.config({ virtual_text = false }), to not have all diagnostics in the buffer displayed conflict. May be in the future we will integrate it with native vim.diagnostic

Add the following to your init.lua or init.vim:

-- lazy.nvim
{
    'sontungexpt/better-diagnostic-virtual-text',
    "LspAttach"
    config = function(_)
        require('better-diagnostic-virtual-text').setup(opts)
    end
}

-- or better ways configure in on_attach of lsp client
-- if use this way don't need to call setup function
{
    'sontungexpt/better-diagnostic-virtual-text',
    lazy = true,
}
M.on_attach = function(client, bufnr)
    -- nil can replace with the options of each buffer
    require("better-diagnostic-virtual-text.api").setup_buf(bufnr, {})

    --- ... other config for lsp client
end

Configuration

-- Can be applied to each buffer separately

local default_options = {
    ui = {
        wrap_line_after = false, -- wrap the line after this length to avoid the virtual text is too long
        left_kept_space = 3, --- the number of spaces kept on the left side of the virtual text, make sure it enough to custom for each line
        right_kept_space = 3, --- the number of spaces kept on the right side of the virtual text, make sure it enough to custom for each line
        arrow = "  ",
        up_arrow = "  ",
        down_arrow = "  ",
        above = false, -- the virtual text will be displayed above the line
    },
    priority = 2003, -- the priority of virtual text
    inline = true,
}

Customize ui

UI will has 4 parts: arrow, left_kept_space, message, right_kept_space orders:

| arrow | left_kept_space | message | right_kept_space |

  • arrow: This part is the arrow symbol that indicates the severity of the diagnostic message.
  • left_kept_space: The space to keep on the left side of the virtual text. Please make sure it enough to custom for each line. Default this part is the tree in virtual text.
  • message: The message at the current line.
  • right_kept_space: The space to keep on the right side of the virtual text. Please make sure it enough to custom for each line.

Override this function before setup the plugin.

--- Format line chunks for virtual text display.
---
--- This function formats the line chunks for virtual text display, considering various options such as severity,
--- underline symbol, text offsets, and parts to be removed.
---
--- @param ui_opts table - The table of UI options. Should contain:
---     - arrow: The symbol used as the left arrow.
---     - up_arrow: The symbol used as the up arrow.
---     - down_arrow: The symbol used as the down arrow.
---     - left_kept_space: The space to keep on the left side.
---     - right_kept_space: The space to keep on the right side.
---     - wrap_line_after: The maximum line length to wrap after.
--- @param line_idx number - The index of the current line (1-based). It start from the cursor line to above or below depend on the above option.
--- @param line_msg string - The message to display on the line.
--- @param severity number - The severity level of the diagnostic (1 = Error, 2 = Warn, 3 = Info, 4 = Hint).
--- @param max_line_length number - The maximum length of the line.
--- @param lasted_line boolean - Whether this is the last line of the diagnostic message. Please check line_idx == 1 to know the first line before checking lasted_line because the first line can be the lasted line if the message has only one line.
--- @param virt_text_offset number - The offset for virtual text positioning.
--- @param should_display_below boolean - Whether to display the virtual text below the line. If above is true, this option will be whether the virtual text should be above
--- @param above_instead boolean - Display above or below
--- @param removed_parts table - A table indicating which parts should be deleted and make room for message (e.g., arrow, left_kept_space, right_kept_space).
--- @param diagnostic table - The diagnostic to display. see `:help vim.Diagnostic.` for more information.
--- @return table - A list of formatted chunks for virtual text display.
--- @see vim.api.nvim_buf_set_extmark

Public API Functions

Replace M with the require("better-diagnostic-virtual-text.api").

NOTE : I was too lazy to write the complete API documentation, so I used ChatGPT to generate it. If there are any inaccuracies, please refer to the source for verification.

M.inspect_cache()

  • Description: Inspects the diagnostics cache for debugging purposes.
  • Parameters: None
  • Returns: None

M.foreach_line(bufnr, callback)

Iterates through each line of diagnostics in a specified buffer and invokes a callback function for each line. Ensures compatibility with Lua versions older than 5.2 by using the default pairs function directly, or with a custom pairs function that handles diagnostic metadata.

Example

local meta_pairs = function(t)
  local metatable = getmetatable(t)
  if metatable and metatable.__pairs then
      return metatable.__pairs(t)
  end
  return pairs(t)
end

usage:

require("better-diagnostic-virtual-text.api").foreach_line(bufnr, function(line, diagnostics)
  for _, diagnostic in meta_pairs(diagnostics) do
    print(diagnostic.message)
  end
end)
