How do I add my own keybindings?

  • Add your own binding
-- save the buffer
lvim.keys.normal_mode["<C-s>"] = ":w<cr>"
-- move the cursor without leaving insert mode
lvim.keys.insert_mode["<A-h>"] = "<Left>"
lvim.keys.insert_mode["<A-l>"] = "<Right>"

  • Remove or un-map a default binding

  • Or you can use the native vim way for those tricky bindings that you are not sure how to translate just yet
-- Search and replace word under cursor using <F2>
vim.cmd [[ nnoremap <F2> :%s/<c-r><c-w>/<c-r><c-w>/gc<c-f>$F/i ]]

What is null-ls and why do you use it?

For C/C++ we have the clangd by llvm which can also use its siblings' abilities clang-tidy and clang-format to support additional linting and formatting. But something like pyright doesn't support formatting, so we use null-ls to register black and flake8 for example, as a "fake" language server.

Since it's not using a separate binary it's called null-ls or null language server.

Where can I find some example configs?
