nvim-hs: Haskell plugin backend for neovim

[ apache, editor, library, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides a plugin provider for neovim. It allows you to write plugins for one of the great editors of our time in the best programming language of our time! ;-)

You should find all the documentation you need inside the Neovim module. Most other modules are considered internal, so don't be annoyed if using things from there may break your code!

The following modules may also be of interest and they should not change their API: Neovim.Quickfix

If you want to write unit tests that interact with neovim, Neovim.Test provides some useful functions for that.

If you are keen to debug nvim-hs or a module you are writing, take a look at the Neovim.Debug module.

If you spot any errors or if you have great ideas, feel free to open an issue on github.

Readme for nvim-hs-0.0.7

[back to package description]


Neovim API for Haskell plugins as well as a plugin provider. This library and executable should provide a basis for developing plugins. This package should only contain broadly useful interfaces to write plugins for neovim in haskell. The design goal is to create an easy to use API that avoids most of the boilerplate while still retaining some sense of reliability and type safety. Since Template Haskell is used to generate the neovim bindings and to avoid some of the boilerplate handy work, some exotic operating systems and architectures may not work.

Build Status Hackage version

What do I have to expect if I were to use it now?

Check the issue list here on github.

How do I start using this?

All you need to know is inside the Neovim module (hackage).


Documentation, typo fixes and alike will almost always be merged.

If you want to bring forward new features or convenience libraries for interacting with neovim, you should create an issue first. The features of this (cabal) project should be kept small as this helps reducing the development time. (For some tests it is necessary to issue cabal install, so any change to to a module can significantly increase the compilation time.) If your idea solves a general problem, feel free to open an issue in the library project of nvim-hs: nvim-hs-contrib
