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,
Gentoo, and more!

Install from source

The build is CMake-based, but a Makefile is provided as a convenience.

make CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo
sudo make install

To install to a non-default location:

make CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/full/path/
make install

To skip bundled (third-party/*) dependencies:

  1. Install the dependencies using a package manager.
    sudo apt install gperf luajit luarocks libuv1-dev libluajit-5.1-dev libunibilium-dev libmsgpack-dev libtermkey-dev libvterm-dev libutf8proc-dev
    sudo luarocks build mpack
    sudo luarocks build lpeg
    sudo luarocks build inspect
  2. Build with USE_BUNDLED=OFF:
    sudo make install

To inspect the build, these CMake features are useful:

  • 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.

See the Building Neovim wiki page for details.

Transitioning from Vim

See :help nvim-from-vim for instructions.
