Version 1.0 Functionalities

Navigate around your document based on Treesitter's abstract Syntax Tree. Step into, step out, step over, step back.

syntax-tree-surfer.movement.showcase.mp4

Move / Swap elements around based on your visual selection

syntax-tree-surfer.swap.showcase.2.mp4

Swap in Normal Mode - Now supports Dot (.) Repeat

dot.repeat.mp4

How do I install?

Use your favorite Plugin Manager with the link ziontee113/syntax-tree-surfer

For Packer:

use "ziontee113/syntax-tree-surfer"

How do I set things up?

Here's my suggestion:

-- Syntax Tree Surfer
local opts = {noremap = true, silent = true}

-- Normal Mode Swapping:
-- Swap The Master Node relative to the cursor with it's siblings, Dot Repeatable
vim.keymap.set("n", "vU", function()
	vim.opt.opfunc = "v:lua.STSSwapUpNormal_Dot"
	return "g@l"
end, { silent = true, expr = true })
vim.keymap.set("n", "vD", function()
	vim.opt.opfunc = "v:lua.STSSwapDownNormal_Dot"
	return "g@l"
end, { silent = true, expr = true })

-- Swap Current Node at the Cursor with it's siblings, Dot Repeatable
vim.keymap.set("n", "vd", function()
	vim.opt.opfunc = "v:lua.STSSwapCurrentNodeNextNormal_Dot"
	return "g@l"
end, { silent = true, expr = true })
vim.keymap.set("n", "vu", function()
	vim.opt.opfunc = "v:lua.STSSwapCurrentNodePrevNormal_Dot"
	return "g@l"
end, { silent = true, expr = true })

--> If the mappings above don't work, use these instead (no dot repeatable)
-- vim.keymap.set("n", "vd", '<cmd>STSSwapCurrentNodeNextNormal<cr>', opts)
-- vim.keymap.set("n", "vu", '<cmd>STSSwapCurrentNodePrevNormal<cr>', opts)
-- vim.keymap.set("n", "vD", '<cmd>STSSwapDownNormal<cr>', opts)
-- vim.keymap.set("n", "vU", '<cmd>STSSwapUpNormal<cr>', opts)

-- Visual Selection from Normal Mode
vim.keymap.set("n", "vx", '<cmd>STSSelectMasterNode<cr>', opts)
vim.keymap.set("n", "vn", '<cmd>STSSelectCurrentNode<cr>', opts)

-- Select Nodes in Visual Mode
vim.keymap.set("x", "J", '<cmd>STSSelectNextSiblingNode<cr>', opts)
vim.keymap.set("x", "K", '<cmd>STSSelectPrevSiblingNode<cr>', opts)
vim.keymap.set("x", "H", '<cmd>STSSelectParentNode<cr>', opts)
vim.keymap.set("x", "L", '<cmd>STSSelectChildNode<cr>', opts)

-- Swapping Nodes in Visual Mode
vim.keymap.set("x", "<A-j>", '<cmd>STSSwapNextVisual<cr>', opts)
vim.keymap.set("x", "<A-k>", '<cmd>STSSwapPrevVisual<cr>', opts)

Now let's start Tree Surfing! πŸŒ²πŸ’¦

Version 1.1 update

This feature will help you save some keystrokes & brain power when you want to create some code at the top level node of your current cursor position.

lua require("syntax-tree-surfer").go_to_top_node_and_execute_commands(false, { "normal! O", "normal! O", "startinsert" })<cr>

The .go_to_top_node_and_execute_commands() method takes 2 arguments:

  1. boolean: if false then it will jump to the beginning of the node, if true it jumps to the end.

  2. lua table: a table that contains strings, each string is a vim command example: { "normal! O", "normal! O", "startinsert" }


Version 2.0 Beta Update

Targeted Jump with Virtual Text

STS.2.0.Beta.targeted.jump.-.converted.mp4

Filtered Jump through user-defined node types

STS.2.0.Beta.filtered.jump.-.converted.mp4

These are experimental features and I wish to expand them even further. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to let me know 😊

Example mappings for Version 2.0 Beta functionalities:

-- Syntax Tree Surfer V2 Mappings
-- Targeted Jump with virtual_text
local sts = require("syntax-tree-surfer")
vim.keymap.set("n", "gv", function() -- only jump to variable_declarations
	sts.targeted_jump({ "variable_declaration" })
end, opts)
vim.keymap.set("n", "gfu", function() -- only jump to functions
	sts.targeted_jump({ "function", "arrrow_function", "function_definition" })
  --> In this example, the Lua language schema uses "function",
  --  when the Python language uses "function_definition"
  --  we include both, so this keymap will work on both languages
end, opts)
vim.keymap.set("n", "gif", function() -- only jump to if_statements
	sts.targeted_jump({ "if_statement" })
end, opts)
vim.keymap.set("n", "gfo", function() -- only jump to for_statements
	sts.targeted_jump({ "for_statement" })
end, opts)
vim.keymap.set("n", "gj", function() -- jump to all that you specify
	sts.targeted_jump({
		"function",
	  "if_statement",
		"else_clause",
		"else_statement",
		"elseif_statement",
		"for_statement",
		"while_statement",
		"switch_statement",
	})
end, opts)

-------------------------------
-- filtered_jump --
-- "default" means that you jump to the default_desired_types or your lastest jump types
vim.keymap.set("n", "<A-n>", function()
	sts.filtered_jump("default", true) --> true means jump forward
end, opts)
vim.keymap.set("n", "<A-p>", function()
	sts.filtered_jump("default", false) --> false means jump backwards
end, opts)

-- non-default jump --> custom desired_types
vim.keymap.set("n", "your_keymap", function()
	sts.filtered_jump({
		"if_statement",
		"else_clause",
		"else_statement",
	}, true) --> true means jump forward
end, opts)
vim.keymap.set("n", "your_keymap", function()
	sts.filtered_jump({
		"if_statement",
		"else_clause",
		"else_statement",
	}, false) --> false means jump backwards
end, opts)

-------------------------------
-- jump with limited targets --
-- jump to sibling nodes only
vim.keymap.set("n", "-", function()
	sts.filtered_jump({
		"if_statement",
		"else_clause",
		"else_statement",
	}, false, { destination = "siblings" })
end, opts)
vim.keymap.set("n", "=", function()
	sts.filtered_jump({ "if_statement", "else_clause", "else_statement" }, true, { destination = "siblings" })
end, opts)

-- jump to parent or child nodes only
vim.keymap.set("n", "_", function()
	sts.filtered_jump({
		"if_statement",
		"else_clause",
		"else_statement",
	}, false, { destination = "parent" })
end, opts)
vim.keymap.set("n", "+", function()
	sts.filtered_jump({
		"if_statement",
		"else_clause",
		"else_statement",
	}, true, { destination = "children" })
end, opts)

-- Setup Function example:
-- These are the default options:
require("syntax-tree-surfer").setup({
	highlight_group = "STS_highlight",
	disable_no_instance_found_report = false,
	default_desired_types = {
		"function",
		"arrow_function",
		"function_definition",
		"if_statement",
		"else_clause",
		"else_statement",
		"elseif_statement",
		"for_statement",
		"while_statement",
		"switch_statement",
	},
	left_hand_side = "fdsawervcxqtzb",
	right_hand_side = "jkl;oiu.,mpy/n",
	icon_dictionary = {
		["if_statement"] = "",
		["else_clause"] = "οŠ‚",
		["else_statement"] = "οŠ‚",
		["elseif_statement"] = "",
		["for_statement"] = "ﭜ",
		["while_statement"] = "ο―©",
		["switch_statement"] = "ﳟ",
		["function"] = "οž”",
		["function_definition"] = "οž”",
		["variable_declaration"] = "",
	},
})

Because every languages have different schemas and node-types, you can check the node-types that you're interested in with https://github.com/nvim-treesitter/playground

You can also do a quick check using the command :STSPrintNodesAtCursor

Version 2.2 Update

Hold and swap nodes

2.2.lazy.demo.mp4

This feature allows marking a node and then swapping it with another node.

Example mapping:

-- Holds a node, or swaps the held node
vim.keymap.set("n", "gnh", "<cmd>STSSwapOrHold<cr>", opts)
-- Same for visual
vim.keymap.set("x", "gnh", "<cmd>STSSwapOrHoldVisual<cr>", opts)

The lower-level functionality can be accessed via:

require("syntax-tree-surfer").hold_or_swap(true) -- param is_visual boolean
require("syntax-tree-surfer").clear_held_node()

note that STSSwapOrHoldVisual will clear the visual selection, but hold_or_swap(true) will not.
