In this post, I would like to share how to set up Neovim for writing simple C programs. First, we need to install additional packages or tools. The installation sections below are mostly aimed at Linux. For macOS, clang is already installed, and for ccls, you can simply install it via HomeBrew.

If you’re running Ubuntu or any other Linux distro, you can use its package manager as such: sudo apt install neovim macOS. Same goes with macOS’ Homebrew: brew install neovim Windows. On Windows, you can use one of the package managers such as Chocolatey: choco install neovim. Scoop install neovim.
For those who can't get pip installed once doing brew install python, you can use sudo easyinstall pip (to install pip in /usr/local/bin) to make the subsequent commands work. TLDR; no one should need to be concerned about installing pip in 2020. These instructions are very dated, probably back to pre-2016. Update your system and python installation first.

VV is a Neovim client for macOS. A pure, fast, minimalistic Vim experience with good macOS integration. Optimized for speed and nice font rendering.
- Fast text render via WebGL.
- OS integration: copy/paste, mouse, scroll.
- Fullscreen support for native and simple (fast) mode.
- All app settings configurable via vimscript.
- Command line launcher.
- “Save All” dialog on quit and “Refresh” dialog on external changes.
- Text zoom.
Install via Homebrew
VV is available via Homebrew Cask:
It will also install Neovim (if it is not installed) and command line launcher
Or you can download the most recent release from the Releases page.
You need Neovim to run VV. You can install it via Homebrew:
$ brew install neovim. Or you can find Neovim installation instructions here: https://github.com/neovim/neovim/wiki/Installing-Neovim. Neovim version 0.4.0 and higher is required.
You can also build it manually. You will need Node.js and Yarn installed.
This will generate a VV.app binary in the dist directory. Copy VV.app to your /Applications folder and add the CLI launcher
vv to your
Command Line Launcher
You can use the
vv command to run VV in a Terminal. Install it via the
VV → Command Line Launcher.. menu item. VV will add the command to your
/usr/local/bin folder. If you prefer another place, you can link the command manually:
vv [options] [file ..]
Options are passed to
nvim. You can check available options in nvim help:
You can setup VV-specific options via the
:VVset command. It works the same as the vim built-in command
:set. For example
:VVset nofullscreen is the same as
:VVset fullscreen=0. You can use
:help set for syntax reference.
fu: Switch to fullscreen mode. You can also toggle fullscreen with
sfu: Use simple or standard fullscreen mode. Simple mode is faster than standard macOS fullscreen mode. It does not have any transition animation. Default:
bold: Allow bold font. You can completely disable bold even if the colorscheme uses it. Default:
italic': Allow italic. Default:
underline: Allow underline. Default:
undercurl: Allow undercurl. Default:
fontfamily: Font family. Syntax is the same as CSS
fontsize: Font size in pixels. Default:
lineheight: Line height related to font size. Pixel value is
fontsize * lineheight. Default:
letterspacing: Fine-tuning letter spacing in retina pixels. Can be a negative value. For retina screens the value is physical pixels. For non-retina screens it works differently: it divides the value by 2 and rounds it. For example,
:VVset letterspacing=1will make characters 1 pixel wider on retina displays and will do nothing on non-retina displays. Value 2 is 2 physical pixels on retina and 1 physical pixel on non-retina. Default:
reloadchanged: Show dialog when opened files are changed externally. For example, when you switch git branches. It will prompt you to keep your changes or reload the file. Default:
width: Window width. Can be a number in pixels or percentage of display width.
height: Window height.
left: Window position from left. Can be a number in pixels or a percentage. Percent values work the same as the
background-positionrule in CSS. For example:
25%means that the vertical line on the window that is 25% from the left will be placed at the line that is 25% from the display's left. 0% — the very left, 100% — the very right, 50% — center.
top: Window position top.
quitoncloselastwindow: Quit app on close last window. Default:
autoupdateinterval: Autoupdate interval in minutes.
0— disable autoupdate. Default:
1440, one day.
You can use these settings in your
init.vim or change them any time. You can check if VV is loaded by checking the
Neovim Vs Vim
VV also sets
set termguicolors on startup.
First, you need start a webpack watch process in a separate terminal:
Macos Install Neovim Software
Then you can run the app:
You can run tests with
yarn test and ESLint with
yarn lint commands.
The VV name comes from the bash shortcut
vv that I use to start Vim.
