See the followings below for more information:

If you have any questions about SpaceVim, please follow the Getting Help Guide.

New Features

This is a list of latest features implemented in SpaceVim:

Use toml as default configuration

Here is an example for using toml as SpaceVim config:

# This is basic configuration example for SpaceVim.

# All SpaceVim options below [options] snippet.
    # Set SpaceVim theme. By default colorscheme layer is not loaded.
    # If you want to use more colorschemes, please load the colorscheme
    # layer.
    colorscheme = "gruvbox"
    colorscheme_bg = "dark"
    # Disable guicolors in basic mode, many terminal do not support 24bit
    # true colors
    enable_guicolors = false
    # Disable statusline separator, if you want to use other value, please
    # install nerd fonts
    statusline_separator = "nil"
    statusline_inactive_separator = "bar"
    buffer_index_type = 4
    windows_index_type = 3
    enable_tabline_ft_icon = false
    enable_statusline_mode = false
    statusline_unicode_symbols = false
    # Enable Vim compatible mode, avoid changing origin Vim key bindings
    vimcompatible = true

# Enable autocomplete layer
    name = 'autocomplete'
    auto-completion-return-key-behavior = "complete"
    auto-completion-tab-key-behavior = "cycle"

    name = 'shell'
    default_position = 'top'
    default_height = 30

Iedit mode

SpaceVim uses a powerful iedit mode to quick edit multiple occurrences of a symbol or selection. Two new modes:iedit-Normal/iedit-Insert.

The default color for iedit is red/green which is based on the current colorscheme.

Highlight cursor symbol

SpaceVim supports highlighting of the current symbol on demand and adds a transient state to easily navigate and rename this symbol.

Fly Grep in Vim

With this feature, Vim will display the searching result as you type. Of course, it is running asynchronously. Before using this feature, you need to install a searching tool. FlyGrep works through search tools: ag, rg, ack, pt and grep, Choose one you like.

Mnemonic key bindings navigation

You don't need to remember any key bindings, as the mapping guide will show up after the SPC is pressed. The mapping guide is also available for g, z, and s.

mapping guide

Help description for key bindings

Use SPC h d k to get the help description of a key binding, and gd to find definition of key bindings.

describe key bindings
