Debian CI

Neovim is a project that seeks to aggressively refactor Vim in order to:

See the Introduction wiki page and Roadmap
for more information.


See :help nvim-features for the full list!

Install from package

Pre-built packages for Windows, macOS, and Linux are found on the
Releases page.

Managed packages are in Homebrew, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Arch Linux, Void Linux, Gentoo, and more!

Install from source

See the Building Neovim wiki page for details.

The build is CMake-based, but a Makefile is provided as a convenience.
After installing the dependencies, run the following command.

make CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo
sudo make install

To install to a non-default location:

make CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/full/path/
make install

CMake hints for inspecting the build:

  • cmake --build build --target help lists all build targets.
  • build/CMakeCache.txt (or cmake -LAH build/) contains the resolved values of all CMake variables.
  • build/compile_commands.json shows the full compiler invocations for each translation unit.

Transitioning from Vim

See :help nvim-from-vim for instructions.
