Clippy may be fun and helpful to new users, but it have some caveats:

  • it distracts the eye
  • appears in most of the daily-use keybindings
  • refresh too much screen

As long as I find the help message useful, i would like to have an option to disable clippy and display the help message at the bottom of the screen, like the autocomplete commands, but with different background color

auto help can be disabled by setting the autoinfo option to false. You can change info box color by modifiing the Information colalias, for example use :colalias Information white,blue to use white on blue for information boxes.

I am not sure where you would like to display it, it already goes as close as possible to the bottom right corner while avoiding any overlapping with the completion menu.

My idea was to make the help message be displayed in landscape filling the whole width and supporting various columns to display all keys

Note that you now can disable clippy (while still getting the info box) by adding ncurses_assistant=none in ui_options.

:set global ui_options ncurses_assistant=none

Reformating the text while still keeping it legible is a tricky task and would require interpreting some markup in docstrings, which seems too complex to be worth it.
