INTRODUCTION *airline-intro*
vim-airline is a fast and lightweight alternative to powerline, written
in 100% vimscript with no outside dependencies.
When the plugin is correctly loaded, Vim will draw a nice statusline at the
bottom of each window.
That line consists of several sections, each one displaying some piece of
information. By default (without configuration) this line will look like this: >
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
|~ |
|~ |
|~ VIM - Vi IMproved |
|~ |
|~ version 8.0 |
|~ by Bram Moolenaar et al. |
|~ Vim is open source and freely distributable |
|~ |
|~ type :h :q<Enter> to exit |
|~ type :help<Enter> or <F1> for on-line help |
|~ type :help version8<Enter> for version info |
|~ |
|~ |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| A | B | C X | Y | Z | [...] |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
The statusline is the colored line at the bottom, which contains the sections
(possibly in different colors):
section meaning (example)~
--------------------------
A displays the mode + additional flags like crypt/spell/paste (INSERT)
B VCS information (branch, hunk summary) (master)
C filename + read-only flag (~/.vim/vimrc RO)
X filetype (vim)
Y file encoding[fileformat] (utf-8[unix])
Z current position in the file
percentage % ☰ current line/number of lines ln : column
So this: 10% ☰ 10/100 ln : 20 means: >
10% - 10 percent
☰ 10 - current line 10
/100 ln - of 100 lines
: 20 - current column 20
<
[...] additional sections (warning/errors/statistics)
from external plugins (e.g. YCM/syntastic/...)
For a better look, those sections can be colored differently, depending on the mode and
whether the current file is 'modified'
Additionally, several extensions exists, that can provide additional feature (e.g. the
tabline extension provides an extra statusline on the top of the Vim window and can
display loaded buffers and tabs in the current Vim session).
Most of this is customizable and the default sections can be configured using the vim
variables g:airline_section_<name> (see |airline-default-sections|)
==============================================================================
FEATURES *airline-features*
* tiny core written with extensibility in mind.
* integrates with many popular plugins.
* looks good with regular fonts, and provides configuration points so you
can use unicode or powerline symbols.
* optimized for speed; it loads in under a millisecond.
* fully customizable; if you know a little 'statusline' syntax you can
tweak it to your needs.
* extremely easy to write themes.
==============================================================================
NAME *airline-name*
Where did the name come from?
I wrote this on an airplane, and since it's light as air it turned out to be a
good name :-)
==============================================================================
CONFIGURATION *airline-configuration*
There are a couple configuration values available (shown with their default
values):
* the separator used on the left side >
let g:airline_left_sep='>'
<
* the separator used on the right side >
let g:airline_right_sep='<'
<
* enable modified detection >
let g:airline_detect_modified=1
* enable paste detection >
let g:airline_detect_paste=1
<
* enable crypt detection >
let g:airline_detect_crypt=1
* enable spell detection >
let g:airline_detect_spell=1
* display spelling language when spell detection is enabled
(if enough space is available) >
let g:airline_detect_spelllang=1
<
* enable iminsert detection >
let g:airline_detect_iminsert=0
<
* determine whether inactive windows should have the left section collapsed to
only the filename of that buffer. >
let g:airline_inactive_collapse=1
<
* themes are automatically selected based on the matching colorscheme. this
can be overridden by defining a value. >
let g:airline_theme='dark'
<
Note: Only the dark theme is distributed with vim-airline. For more themes,
checkout the vim-airline-themes repository
(github.com/vim-airline/vim-airline-themes)
* if you want to patch the airline theme before it gets applied, you can
supply the name of a function where you can modify the palette. >
let g:airline_theme_patch_func = 'AirlineThemePatch'
function! AirlineThemePatch(palette)
if g:airline_theme == 'badwolf'
for colors in values(a:palette.inactive)
let colors[3] = 245
endfor
endif
endfunction
<
* By default, airline will use unicode symbols if your encoding matches
utf-8. If you want the powerline symbols set this variable: >
let g:airline_powerline_fonts = 1
<
If you want to use plain ascii symbols, set this variable: >
let g:airline_symbols_ascii = 1
<
* define the set of text to display for each mode. >
let g:airline_mode_map = {} " see source for the defaults
" or copy paste the following into your vimrc for shortform text
let g:airline_mode_map = {
\ '__' : '-',
\ 'c' : 'C',
\ 'i' : 'I',
\ 'ic' : 'I',
\ 'ix' : 'I',
\ 'n' : 'N',
\ 'ni' : 'N',
\ 'no' : 'N',
\ 'R' : 'R',
\ 'Rv' : 'R',
\ 's' : 'S',
\ 'S' : 'S',
\ '' : 'S',
\ 't' : 'T',
\ 'v' : 'V',
\ 'V' : 'V',
\ '' : 'V',
\ }
<
* define the set of filename match queries which excludes a window from having
its statusline modified >
let g:airline_exclude_filenames = [] " see source for current list
<
* define the set of filetypes which are excluded from having its window
statusline modified >
let g:airline_exclude_filetypes = [] " see source for current list
<
* defines whether the preview window should be excluded from have its window
statusline modified (may help with plugins which use the preview window
heavily) >
let g:airline_exclude_preview = 0
<
* disable the Airline customization for selective windows (this is a
window-local variable so you can disable it per-window) >
let w:airline_disabled = 1
* Do not draw separators for empty sections (only for the active window) >
let g:airline_skip_empty_sections = 1
<
This variable can be overriden by setting a window-local variable with
the same name (in the correct window): >
let w:airline_skip_empty_sections = 0
<
* Caches the changes to the highlighting groups, should therefore be faster.
Set this to one, if you experience a sluggish Vim: >
let g:airline_highlighting_cache = 0
<
* disable airline on FocusLost autocommand (e.g. when Vim loses focus): >
let g:airline_focuslost_inactive = 1
<
==============================================================================
COMMANDS *airline-commands*
:AirlineTheme {theme-name} *:AirlineTheme*
Displays or changes the current theme.
:AirlineToggleWhitespace *:AirlineToggleWhitespace*
Toggles whitespace detection.
:AirlineToggle *:AirlineToggle*
Toggles between the standard 'statusline' and airline.
:AirlineRefresh *:AirlineRefresh*
Refreshes all highlight groups and redraws the statusline.
==============================================================================
AUTOCOMMANDS *airline-autocommands*
Airline comes with some user-defined autocommands.
|AirlineAfterInit| after plugin is initialized, but before the statusline
is replaced
|AirlineAfterTheme| after theme of the statusline has been changed
|AirlineToggledOn| after airline is activated and replaced the statusline
|AirlineToggledOff| after airline is deactivated and the statusline is
restored to the original
==============================================================================
CUSTOMIZATION *airline-customization*
The following are some unicode symbols for customizing the left/right
separators, as well as the powerline font glyphs.
Note: You must define the dictionary first before setting values. Also, it's a
good idea to check whether it exists as to avoid accidentally overwriting
its contents. >

let g:airline_symbols = {}

<
For more intricate customizations, you can replace the predefined sections
with the usual statusline syntax.
Note: If you define any section variables it will replace the default values
entirely. If you want to disable only certain parts of a section you can try
using variables defined in the |airline-configuration| or |airline-extensions|
section.

let g:airline_section_c = '%t'
<
*airline#ignore_bufadd_pat*
Determines a pattern to ignore a buffer name for various things (e.g. the
tabline extension) or the read-only check. Default is
`g:airline#extensions#tabline#ignore_bufadd_pat` (see below) or
`'gundo|undotree|vimfiler|tagbar|nerd_tree|startify|!'` if it is unset.
The "!" prevents terminal buffers to appear in the tabline.
*airline#extensions#tabline#exclude_buffers*
Buffer numbers to be excluded from showing in the tabline (similar to
|airline#ignore_bufadd_pat|.
==============================================================================
EXTENSIONS *airline-extensions*
Most extensions are enabled by default and lazily loaded when the
corresponding plugin (if any) is detected.
By default, airline will attempt to load any extension it can find in the
'runtimepath'. On some systems this can result in an undesirable startup
cost. You can disable the check with the following flag. >
let g:airline#extensions#disable_rtp_load = 1
<
Note: Third party plugins that rely on this behavior will be affected. You
will need to manually load them.
Alternatively, if you want a minimalistic setup and would rather opt-in which
extensions get loaded instead of disabling each individually, you can declare
the following list variable: >
" an empty list disables all extensions
let g:airline_extensions = []
" or only load what you want
let g:airline_extensions = ['branch', 'tabline']
<
------------------------------------- *airline-default*
The default extension understands all of the `g:` variables in the
|airline-configuration| section, however it also has some more fine-tuned
configuration values that you can use.
* control which sections get truncated and at what width. >
let g:airline#extensions#default#section_truncate_width = {
\ 'b': 79,
\ 'x': 60,
\ 'y': 88,
\ 'z': 45,
\ 'warning': 80,
\ 'error': 80,
\ }
" Note: set to an empty dictionary to disable truncation.
let g:airline#extensions#default#section_truncate_width = {}
<
* configure the layout of the sections by specifying an array of two arrays
(first array is the left side, second array is the right side). >
let g:airline#extensions#default#layout = [
\ [ 'a', 'b', 'c' ],
\ [ 'x', 'y', 'z', 'error', 'warning' ]
\ ]
<
* configure the layout to not use %(%) grouping items in the statusline.
Try setting this to zero, if you notice bleeding color artifacts >
let airline#extensions#default#section_use_groupitems = 1
<
* configure the fileformat output
By default, it will display something like 'utf-8[unix]', however, you can
skip displaying it, if the output matches a configured string. To do so,
set >
let g:airline#parts#ffenc#skip_expected_string='utf-8[unix]'
<
------------------------------------- *airline-quickfix*
The quickfix extension is a simple built-in extension which determines
whether the buffer is a quickfix or location list buffer, and adjusts the
title accordingly.
* configure the title text for quickfix buffers >

------------------------------------- *airline-nerdtree*
NerdTree <https://github.com/scrooloose/nerdtree.git>
Airline displays the Nerdtree specific statusline (which can be configured using
the |'NerdTreeStatusline'|variable.
------------------------------------- *airline-fugitiveline*
This extension hides the fugitive://**// part of the buffer names, to only
show the file name as if it were in the current working tree.
It is deactivated by default if |airline-bufferline| is activated.
* enable/disable bufferline integration >
let g:airline#extensions#fugitiveline#enabled = 1
<
------------------------------------- *airline-branch*
vim-airline will display the branch-indicator together with the branch name in
the statusline, if one of the following plugins is installed:
fugitive.vim <https://github.com/tpope/vim-fugitive>
lawrencium <https://bitbucket.org/ludovicchabant/vim-lawrencium>
vcscommand <http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=90>
If a file is edited, that is not yet in the repository, the
notexists symbol will be displayed after the branch name.

------------------------------------- *airline-xtabline*
xtabline <https://github.com/mg979/vim-xtabline>
This is a simplified and stand-alone version of the original extension.
The bigger version adds fzf commands, session management, tab bookmarks, and
features that you may not need. They both require |vim-airline| anyway.
Main features and default mappings of this extension are:
* tab cwd persistance, also across sessions if vim-obsession is being used.
* buffer filtering in the tabline: only buffers whose path is within the tab
cwd will be shown in the tabline.
* toggle tabs/buffer view on the tabline, toggle buffer filtering:
>
nmap <F5> <Plug>XTablineToggleTabs
nmap <leader><F5> <Plug>XTablineToggleFiltering
* reopen last closed tab, restoring its cwd and buffers:
>
nmap <leader>tr <Plug>XTablineReopen <SID>ReopenLastTab
* switch among filtered buffers (accepts count):
>
nmap ]l <Plug>XTablineNextBuffer
nmap [l <Plug>XTablinePrevBuffer
* go to N buffer (a count must be provided):
>
nmap <BS> <Plug>XTablineSelectBuffer
* alternative command if count is not provided:
>
let g:xtabline_alt_action = "buffer #"
Make sure to enable >
:let g:airline_extensions#tabline#show_buffers = 1
otherwise the tabline might not actually be displayed correctly.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
You may also set these options:
* exclude fugitive logs and files that share part of the real buffer path:
>
let g:xtabline_include_previews = 0 (default 1)
* activate fast cwd selection mappings:
>
let g:xtabline_cd_commands = 1 (default 0)
* default mappings for them are:
>
map <leader>cdc <Plug>XTablineCdCurrent
map <leader>cdd <Plug>XTablineCdDown1
map <leader>cd2 <Plug>XTablineCdDown2
map <leader>cd3 <Plug>XTablineCdDown3
map <leader>cdh <Plug>XTablineCdHome
Note: if you don't use these mappings and change the cwd, the tabline won't
be updated automatically. Either re-enter the tab or press <F5> two times.
* here are some easier mappings to change tab buffer:
>
nnoremap <silent> <expr> <Right> v:count?
\ airline#extensions#tabline#xtabline#next_buffer(v:count) : "\<Right>"
nnoremap <silent> <expr> <Left> v:count?

==============================================================================
ADVANCED CUSTOMIZATION *airline-advanced-customization*
The defaults will accommodate the mass majority of users with minimal
configuration. However, if you want to reposition sections or contents you can
do so with built-in helper functions, which makes it possible to create
sections in a more declarative style.
------------------------------------- *airline-parts*
A part is something that contains metadata that eventually gets rendered into
the statusline. You can define parts that contain constant strings or
functions. Defining parts is needed if you want to use features like automatic
insertion of separators or hiding based on window width.
For example, this is how you would define a part function: >
call airline#parts#define_function('foo', 'GetFooText')
<
Here is how you would define a part that is visible only if the window width
greater than a minimum width. >
call airline#parts#define_minwidth('foo', 50)
<
Parts can be configured to be visible conditionally. >
call airline#parts#define_condition('foo', 'getcwd() =~ "work_dir"')
<
Now add part "foo" to section section airline_section_y: >
let g:airline_section_y = airline#section#create_right(['ffenc','foo'])
<
Note: Part definitions are combinative; e.g. the two examples above modify the
same `foo` part.
Note: Look at the source code and tests for the full API.
------------------------------------- *airline-predefined-parts*
Before is a list of parts that are predefined by vim-airline.
* `mode` displays the current mode
* `iminsert` displays the current insert method
* `paste` displays the paste indicator
* `crypt` displays the crypted indicator
* `spell` displays the spell indicator
* `filetype` displays the file type
* `readonly` displays the read only indicator
* `file` displays the filename and modified indicator
* `path` displays the filename (absolute path) and modifier indicator
* `linenr` displays the current line number
* `maxlinenr` displays the number of lines in the buffer
* `ffenc` displays the file format and encoding
And the following are defined for their respective extensions:
`ale_error_count` `ale_warning_count` `branch` `eclim` `hunks`
`languageclient_error_count` `languageclient_warning_count`
`neomake_error_count` `neomake_warning_count` `obsession` `syntastic-warn`
`syntastic-err` `tagbar` `whitespace` `windowswap` `ycm_error_count`
`ycm_warning_count`
------------------------------------- *airline-accents*
Accents can be defined on any part, like so: >
call airline#parts#define_accent('foo', 'red')
<
This will override the colors of that part by using what is defined in that
particular accent. In the above example, the `red` accent is used, which means
regardless of which section the part is used in, it will have red foreground
colors instead of the section's default foreground color.
The following accents are defined by default. Themes can define their variants
of the colors, but defaults will be provided if missing. >
bold, italic, red, green, blue, yellow, orange, purple, none
<
The defaults configure the mode and line number parts to be bold, and the
readonly part to be red.
"none" is special. This can be used, to remove a bold accent from an existing
theme. For example, usually the mode part of the statusline is usually defined
to be bold. However, it can be hard to remove an existing bold accent from the
default configuration. Therefore, you can use the none accent to remove
existing accents, so if you put >
call airline#parts#define_accent('mode', 'none')
the mode section will be set to non-bold font style.
------------------------------------- *airline-sections*
Once a part is defined, you can use helper functions to generate the
statuslines for each section. For example, to use the part above, we could
define a section like this: >
function! AirlineInit()
let g:airline_section_a = airline#section#create(['mode', ' ', 'foo'])
let g:airline_section_b = airline#section#create_left(['ffenc','file'])
let g:airline_section_c = airline#section#create(['%{getcwd()}'])
endfunction
autocmd User AirlineAfterInit call AirlineInit()
<
This will create a section with the `mode`, followed by a space, and our `foo`
part in section `a`. Section `b` will have two parts with a left-side
separator. And section `c` will contain the current path. You may notice that
the space and cwd are not defined parts. For convenience, if a part of that
key does not exist, it will be inserted as is. The unit tests will be a good
resource for possibilities.
Note: The use of |User| is important, because most extensions are lazily
loaded, so we must give them a chance to define their parts before we can use
them. Also this autocommand is only triggered, after the airline functions are
actually available on startup.
Note: The `airline#section#create` function and friends will do its best to
create a section with the appropriate separators, but it only works for
function and text parts. Special 'statusline' items like %f or raw/undefined
parts will not work as it is not possible to inspect their widths/contents
before rendering to the statusline.
==============================================================================
FUNCREFS *airline-funcrefs*
vim-airline internally uses funcrefs to integrate with third party plugins,
and you can tap into this functionality to extend it for you needs. This is
the most powerful way to customize the statusline, and sometimes it may be
easier to go this route than the above methods.
Every section can have two values. The default value is the global `g:`
variable which is used in the absence of a `w:` value. This makes it very easy
to override only certain parts of the statusline by only defining window-local
variables for a subset of all sections.
------------------------------------- *add_statusline_func*
The following is an example of how you can extend vim-airline to support a
new plugin. >
function! MyPlugin(...)
if &filetype == 'MyPluginFileType'
let w:airline_section_a = 'MyPlugin'
let w:airline_section_b = '%f'
let w:airline_section_c = '%{MyPlugin#function()}'
let g:airline_variable_referenced_in_statusline = 'foo'
endif
endfunction
call airline#add_statusline_func('MyPlugin')
<
Notice that only the left side of the statusline is overwritten. This means
the right side (the line/column numbers, etc) will be intact.
------------------------------------- *remove_statusline_func*
You can also remove a function as well, which is useful for when you want a
temporary override. >
call airline#remove_statusline_func('MyPlugin')
<
==============================================================================
PIPELINE *airline-pipeline*
Sometimes you want to do more than just use overrides. The statusline funcref
is invoked and passed two arguments. The first of these arguments is the
statusline builder. You can use this to build completely custom statuslines
to your liking. Here is an example: >
>
function! MyPlugin(...)
" first variable is the statusline builder
let builder = a:1
" WARNING: the API for the builder is not finalized and may change
call builder.add_section('Normal', '%f')
call builder.add_section('WarningMsg', '%{getcwd()}')
call builder.split()
call builder.add_section('airline_z', '%p%%')
" tell the core to use the contents of the builder
return 1
endfunction
<
The above example uses various example highlight groups to demonstrate
that you can use any combination from the loaded colorscheme. However, if
you want colors to change between modes, you should use one of the section
highlight groups, e.g. `airline_a` and `airline_b`.
The second variable is the context, which is a dictionary containing various
values such as whether the statusline is active or not, and the window number.
>
context = {
'winnr': 'the window number for the statusline',
'active': 'whether the window is active or not',
'bufnr': 'the current buffer for this window',
}
<
------------------------------------- *airline-pipeline-return-codes*
The pipeline accepts various return codes and can be used to determine the
next action. The following are the supported codes: >
0 the default, continue on with the next funcref
-1 do not modify the statusline
1 modify the statusline with the current contents of the builder
<
Note: Any value other than 0 will halt the pipeline and prevent the next
funcref from executing.
==============================================================================
WRITING EXTENSIONS *airline-writing-extensions*
For contributions into the plugin, here are the following guidelines:
1. For simple 'filetype' checks, they can be added directly into the
`extensions.vim` file.
2. Pretty much everything else should live as a separate file under the
`extensions/` directory.
a. Inside `extensions.vim`, add a check for some variable or command that
is always available (these must be defined in `plugin/`, and _not_
`autoload/` of the other plugin). If it exists, then initialize the
extension. This ensures that the extension is loaded if and only if the
user has the other plugin installed. Also, a check to
`airline#extensions#foo_plugin#enabled` should be performed to allow the
user to disable it.
b. Configuration variables for the extension should reside in the
extension, e.g. `g:airline#extensions#foo_plugin#bar_variable`.
See the source of |example.vim| for documented code of how to write one.
Looking at the other extensions is also a good resource.

WRITING THEMES *airline-themes*
Themes are written "close to the metal" -- you will need to know some basic
VimL syntax to write a theme, but if you've written in any programming
language before it will be easy to pick up.
The |dark.vim| theme fully documents this procedure and will guide you through
the process.
For other examples, you can visit the official themes repository at
<https://github.com/vim-airline/vim-airline-themes>. It also includes
examples such as |jellybeans.vim| which define colors by extracting highlight
groups from the underlying colorscheme.

TROUBLESHOOTING *airline-troubleshooting*
Q. There are no colors.
A. You need to set up your terminal correctly. For more details, see
<http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/256_colors_in_vim>. Alternatively, if you want
to bypass the automatic detection of terminal colors, you can force Vim
into 256 color mode with this: >
set t_Co=256
<
Q. The statusline does not appear until I create a split.
A. This is the default setting of 'laststatus'. If you want it to appear all
the time, add the following to your vimrc: >
set laststatus=2
<
Q. Powerline symbols are not showing up.
A. First, you must install patched powerline fonts. Second, you must enable
unicode in vim. >
set encoding=utf-8
<
Q. There is a pause when leaving insert mode.
A. Add the following to your vimrc. >
set ttimeoutlen=50
<
Q. The colors look a little off for some themes.
A. Certain themes are derived from the active colorscheme by extracting colors
from predefined highlight groups. These airline themes will look good for
their intended matching colorschemes, but will be hit or miss when loaded
with other colorschemes.
Q. Themes are missing
A. Themes have been extracted into the vim-airlines-themes repository. Simply
clone https://github.com/vim-airline/vim-airline-themes and everything
should work again.
Q. Performance is bad
A. Check the question at the wiki:
