govim
- Go development plugin for Vim8

Command

github.com/govim/govim/cmd/govim
(referred to simply as
govim
) is a Go development plugin for Vim8, much like
vim-go
. But unlike
vim-go
,
govim
is written in Go, not VimScript. It has features like code completion, format-on-save, hover details and go-to definition, all of which are driven by
gopls
, the Language Server Protocol (LSP) server for Go. See the wiki for more details. Installation instructions below.

Package

github.com/govim/govim
provides an API for plugin developers to interface with Vim8 in Go. More details here.

govim
requires at least
go1.12
and Vim
v8.1.1711
(
gvim
is also supported). Neovim is not (currently) supported. More details in the FAQ.

Install

govim
via:
  • Vim 8 packages
    • git clone https://github.com/govim/govim.git ~/.vim/pack/plugins/start/govim
  • Pathogen
    • git clone https://github.com/govim/govim.git ~/.vim/bundle/govim
  • vim-plug
    • Plug 'govim/govim'

You might need some

/
