deno command need to be executable from Vim/Neovim. You can confirm
exepath() function in Vim/Neovim like below:
:echo exepath('deno') /usr/local/bin/deno
Or specify an absolute path to
g:denops#deno variable (See
Once you got deno to work, install
vim-denops/denops.vim as a general Vim
plugin. For example, the following uses vim-plug:
Plug 'vim-denops/denops.vim' Plug 'vim-denops/denops-helloworld.vim'
Then you can confirm if denops is working properly by executing
Once you've confirmed that denops is working, you can remove
Normally, a Denops server is started for each Vim/Neovim instance, but there are cases where the process startup becomes a bottleneck and impairs usability.
In such cases, launching a "Shared server" and connecting to it will allow all Vim/Neovim instances to use a shared server, thus avoiding the bottleneck of process launches and possibly improving usability.
To start the shared server, execute the following command in the denops.vim repository top
deno run -A --no-lock ./denops/@denops-private/cli.ts
Then specify the server address in
g:denops_server_addr as follows
let g:denops_server_addr = '127.0.0.1:32123'
If you'd like to specify hostname and port, use
command arguments as follows
deno run -A --no-lock \ ./denops/@denops-private/cli.ts \ --hostname=0.0.0.0 \ --port 12345
Denops determines the supported versions of Vim/Neovim/Deno based on the following support policy when updating the major version:
- For Vim, versions older than the latest version provided by Homebrew and the version distributed by vim-win32-installer
- For Neovim/Deno, the two most recent minor versions
- Both Neovim and Deno adhere to semantic versioning principles
Before v1.10.0, we defined that the version of denops.vim indicates that code
versions of the entire repository. However, we changed this assumption from
version v1.10.0. Now we defined the version of denops.vim indicates the version
of the code in the
denops/@denops directory that is published to deno.land as
denops_core. That's why we won't bump versions when there are no changes on
code in that directory.
Denops is mainly developed by members of vim-jp.
