NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade neovide -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade neovide -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Description

Gitter

This is a simple graphical user interface for Neovim. Where possible there are some graphical improvements, but it should act functionally like the terminal UI.

Basic Screen Cap

Features

Should be a standard full features Neovim GUI. Beyond that there are some visual niceties:

Ligatures

Supports ligatures and full HarfBuzz backed font shaping.

Ligatures

Animated Cursor

Cursor animates into position with a smear effect to improve tracking of cursor position.

Animated Cursor

Emoji Support

Font fallback supports rendering of emoji not contained in the configured font.

Emoji

Some Nonsense ;)

let g:neovide_cursor_vfx_mode = "railgun"

Railgun

Configuration

Configuration is done almost completely via global neovide variables in your vim config and can be manipulated live at runtime. Details can be found here.

Building

Building instructions are somewhat limited at the moment. All the libraries I use are cross platform and should have
support for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The rendering however is Vulkan-based, so driver support for Vulkan will be
necessary. On Windows this should be enabled by default if you have a relatively recent system.

Note: Neovide requires neovim version 0.4 or greater.

  1. Install the latest version of Rust. I recommend <https://rustup.rs/>
  2. Install CMake. I use chocolatey: choco install cmake --installargs '"ADD_CMAKE_TO_PATH=System"' -y
  3. Install LLVM. I use chocolatey: choco install llvm -y
  4. Ensure graphics libraries are up to date.
  5. git clone https://github.com/Kethku/neovide
  6. cd neovide
  7. cargo build --release
  8. Copy ./target/release/neovide.exe to a known location and enjoy.

If you see an error complaining about DRI3 settings, links in this issue may help:
<https://github.com/Kethku/neovide/issues/44#issuecomment-578618052>.

Note: If you run into libsndio errors, try building without default features which will disable static linking of the SDL
library.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
