Installation

This plugin utilizes vim.ui.select(), so you're gonna need something like dressing.nvim and a fuzzy finder like Telescope or fzf-lua

For Lazy

{
    "ziontee113/icon-picker.nvim",
    config = function()
        require("icon-picker").setup({ disable_legacy_commands = true })

        local opts = { noremap = true, silent = true }

        vim.keymap.set("n", "<Leader><Leader>i", "<cmd>IconPickerNormal<cr>", opts)
        vim.keymap.set("n", "<Leader><Leader>y", "<cmd>IconPickerYank<cr>", opts) --> Yank the selected icon into register
        vim.keymap.set("i", "<C-i>", "<cmd>IconPickerInsert<cr>", opts)
    end
}

For Packer

use "stevearc/dressing.nvim"
use({
  "ziontee113/icon-picker.nvim",
  config = function()
    require("icon-picker").setup({
      disable_legacy_commands = true
    })
  end,
})

For Vim Plug

Plug 'stevearc/dressing.nvim'
Plug 'ziontee113/icon-picker.nvim'

lua << EOF
require("icon-picker").setup({ disable_legacy_commands = true })
EOF

Usage

Sample Config (new):

local opts = { noremap = true, silent = true }

vim.keymap.set("n", "<Leader><Leader>i", "<cmd>IconPickerNormal<cr>", opts)
vim.keymap.set("n", "<Leader><Leader>y", "<cmd>IconPickerYank<cr>", opts) --> Yank the selected icon into register
vim.keymap.set("i", "<C-i>", "<cmd>IconPickerInsert<cr>", opts)

Available Commands:

  • IconPickerNormal - Pick Icon and insert it to the buffer (normal mode)
  • IconPickerInsert - Pick Icon and insert it to the buffer (insert mode)
  • IconPickerYank - Pick Icon and yank it to register (will not input to buffer)

You can cherry pick the Icon source to your preference using arguments, for example:

:IconPickerInsert alt_font symbols
:IconPickerInsert nerd_font emoji
:IconPickerInsert nerd_font
:IconPickerInsert emoji nerd_font alt_font symbols

Available arguments for the IconPicker commands:

  • alt_font
  • emoji
  • html_colors
  • nerd_font
  • nerd_font_v3 (if you're using Nerd Fonts version 3 and above)
  • symbols

I personally use <C-i> for IconPickerInsert. If you also want to map <C-I> and can't do it, you can check out my quick guide to solve that on YouTube: Enable Special Keyboard Combinations in Alacritty / Kitty for Neovim

Sample Config (legacy):

local opts = { noremap = true, silent = true }

vim.keymap.set("n", "<Leader><Leader>i", "<cmd>PickEverything<cr>", opts)
vim.keymap.set("n", "<Leader><Leader>y", "<cmd>PickEverythingYank<cr>", opts)
vim.keymap.set("i", "<C-i>", "<cmd>PickEverythingInsert<cr>", opts)

Available Commands:

  • Normal Mode:
    • PickEverything (Nerd Font Icons & Emojis & Alt Font & Symbols)
    • PickIcons (Nerd Font Icons & Emojis)
    • PickEmoji
    • PickNerd
    • PickNerdV3

    • PickEverythingYank (Nerd Font Icons & Emojis & Alt Font & Symbols)
    • PickIconsYank (Nerd Font Icons & Emojis)
    • PickEmojiYank
    • PickNerdYank
