  • Source code analysis and navigate tool

  • Easy code navigation, view diagnostic errors, see relationships of functions, variables

  • A plugin combines the power of LSP and 🌲🏡 Treesitter together. Not only provids a better highlight but also help you analyse symbol context effectively.

  • ctags fuzzy search & build ctags symbols

  • a short intro of navigator

Here are some examples

Example: Javascript closure

The following screenshot shows javascript call tree 🌲 of variable browser insides a closure. This feature is similar to incoming & outgoing calls from LSP. It is designed for the symbol analysis.



  • The first line of floating windows shows there are 3 references for the symbol browser in closure.js
  • The first reference of browser is an assignment, an emoji 📝 indicates the value is changed in this line. In many cases, we search for references to find out when the value changed.
  • The second reference of browser is inside function displayName and displayName sit inside makeFunc, So you will see displayName{} <- makeFunc{}
  • The third similar to the second, as var browser is on the right side of '=', the value not changed in this line and emoji is not shown.

Example: C++ definition

C++ example: search reference and definition cpp_ref You may find a 🦕 dinosaur(d) on the line of Rectangle rect, which means there is a definition (d for def) of rect in this line.

<- f main() means the definition is inside function main().

Golang struct type

Struct type references in multiple Go ﳑ files


This feature can provide you info in which function/class/method the variable was referenced. It is handy for a large project where class/function definition is too long to fit into the preview window. Also provides a bird's eye view of where the variable is:

  • Referenced
  • Modified
  • Defined
  • Called


  • LSP easy setup. Support the most commonly used lsp clients setup. Dynamic lsp activation based on buffer type. This also enables you to handle workspace with mixed types of codes (e.g. Go + javascript + yml). A better default setup is included for LSP clients.

  • Out of box experience. 10 lines of minimum vimrc can turn your neovim into a full-featured LSP & Treesitter powered IDE

  • UI with floating windows, navigator provides a visual way to manage and navigate through symbols, diagnostic errors, reference etc. It covers all features(handler) provided by LSP from commonly used search reference, to less commonly used search for interface implementation.

  • Code Action GUI

  • Luv async thread and tasks

  • Edit your code in preview window

  • Async request with lsp.buf_request for reference search

  • Treesitter symbol search. It is handy for large files (Some of LSP e.g. sumneko_lua, there is a 100kb file size limitation?). Also as LSP trying to hide details behind, Treesitter allows you to access all AST semantics.

  • FZY search with either native C (if gcc installed) or Lua-JIT

  • LSP multiple symbols highlight/marker and hop between document references

  • Preview definination/references

  • Better navigation for diagnostic errors, Navigate through all files/buffers that contain errors/warnings

  • Grouping references/implementation/incoming/outgoing based on file names.

  • Treesitter based variable/function context analysis. It is 10x times faster compared to purely rely on LSP. In most of the case, it takes treesitter less than 4 ms to read and render all nodes for a file of 1,000 LOC.

  • The first plugin, IMO, allows you to search in all treesitter symbols in the workspace.

  • Nerdfont, emoji for LSP and treesitter kind

  • Optimize display (remove trailing bracket/space), display the caller of reference, de-duplicate lsp results (e.g reference in the same line). Using treesitter for file preview highlighter etc

  • ccls call hierarchy (Non-standard ccls/call API) supports

  • Syntax folding based on treesitter or LSP_fold folding algorithm. (It behaves similar to vs-code); dedicated comment folding.

  • Treesitter symbols sidebar, LSP document symbole sidebar. Both with preview and folding

  • Calltree: Display and expand Lsp incoming/outgoing calls hierarchy-tree with sidebar

  • Fully support LSP CodeAction, CodeLens, CodeLens action. Help you improve code quality.

  • LRU cache for treesitter nodes

  • Lazy loader friendly

  • Multigrid support (different font and detachable)

  • Side panel (sidebar) and floating windows

Why a new plugin

I'd like to go beyond what the system is offering.

Similar projects / special mentions:


Require nvim-0.6.1 or above, nightly (0.8) prefered

You can remove your lspconfig setup and use this plugin. The plugin depends on lspconfig and guihua.lua, which provides GUI and fzy support(migrate from romgrk's project).

Plug 'neovim/nvim-lspconfig'
Plug 'ray-x/guihua.lua', {'do': 'cd lua/fzy && make' }
Plug 'ray-x/navigator.lua'

Note: Highly recommend: 'nvim-treesitter/nvim-treesitter'


    requires = {
        { 'ray-x/guihua.lua', run = 'cd lua/fzy && make' },
        { 'neovim/nvim-lspconfig' },


Easy setup BOTH lspconfig and navigator with one liner. Navigator covers around 20 most used LSP setup.

lua require'navigator'.setup()
call plug#begin('~/.vim/plugged')

Plug 'neovim/nvim-lspconfig'
Plug 'ray-x/guihua.lua', {'do': 'cd lua/fzy && make' }
Plug 'ray-x/navigator.lua'

" Plug 'hrsh7th/nvim-cmp' and other plugins you commenly use...

" optional, if you need treesitter symbol support
Plug 'nvim-treesitter/nvim-treesitter', {'do': ':TSUpdate'}

call plug#end()

" No need for require('lspconfig'), navigator will configure it for you
lua <<EOF

You can remove your lspconfig.lua and use the hooks of navigator.lua. As the navigator will bind keys and handler for you. The LSP will be loaded lazily based on filetype.

A treesitter only mode. In some cases LSP is buggy or not available, you can also use treesitter standalone

call plug#begin('~/.vim/plugged')

Plug 'ray-x/guihua.lua', {'do': 'cd lua/fzy && make' }
Plug 'ray-x/navigator.lua'

" Plug 'hrsh7th/nvim-compe' and other plugins you commenly use...

" optional, if you need treesitter symbol support
Plug 'nvim-treesitter/nvim-treesitter', {'do': ':TSUpdate'}
" optional:
Plug 'nvim-treesitter/nvim-treesitter-refactor' " this provides "go to def" etc

call plug#end()

lua <<EOF

Work with nvim-cmp and nvim-autopairs

The buffer type of navigator floating windows is guihua I would suggest disable guihua for autocomplete. e.g.

disable_filetype = { "TelescopePrompt" , "guihua", "guihua_rust", "clap_input" },

if vim.o.ft == 'clap_input' and vim.o.ft == 'guihua' and vim.o.ft == 'guihua_rust' then
  require'cmp'.setup.buffer { completion = {enable = false} }

-- or with autocmd
vim.cmd("autocmd FileType guihua lua require('cmp').setup.buffer { enabled = false }")
vim.cmd("autocmd FileType guihua_rust lua require('cmp').setup.buffer { enabled = false }")

LSP clients

Built clients:

local servers = {
  "angularls", "gopls", "tsserver", "flow", "bashls", "dockerls", "julials", "pylsp", "pyright",
  "jedi_language_server", "jdtls", "sumneko_lua", "vimls", "html", "jsonls", "solargraph", "cssls",
  "yamlls", "clangd", "ccls", "sqls", "denols", "graphql", "dartls", "dotls",
  "kotlin_language_server", "nimls", "intelephense", "vuels", "phpactor", "omnisharp",
  "r_language_server", "rust_analyzer", "terraformls", "svelte", "texlab", "clojure_lsp", "elixirls",
  "sourcekit", "fsautocomplete", "vls", "hls"

Navigator will try to load avalible lsp server/client based on filetype. The clients has none default on_attach. incremental sync and debounce is enabled by navigator. And the lsp snippet will be enabled. So you could use COQ and nvim-cmp snippet expand.

Other than above setup, additional none default setup are used for following lsp:

  • gopls
  • clangd
  • rust_analyzer
  • sqls
  • sumneko_lua
  • pyright
  • ccls

Please check client setup

The plugin can work with multiple LSP, e.g sqls+gopls+efm. But there are cases you may need to disable some of the servers. (Prevent loading multiple LSP for same source code.) e.g. I saw strange behaviours when I use pylsp+pyright+jedi together. If you have multiple similar LSP installed and have trouble with the plugin, please enable only one at a time.

Add your own servers

Above servers covered a small part neovim lspconfig support, You can still use lspconfig to add and config servers not in the list. If you would like to add a server not in the list, you can check this PR

Alternatively, update following option in setup(if you do not want a PR):

require'navigator'setup{lsp={servers={'cmake', 'lexls'}}}

Above option add cmake and lexls to the default server list

Disable a lsp client loading from navigator

Note: If you have multiple lsp installed for same language, please only enable one at a time by disable others with e.g. disable_lsp={'denols', 'clangd'} To disable a specific LSP, set filetypes to {} e.g.



    disable_lsp = {'pylsd', 'sqlls'},

hi default GuihuaListDark guifg=#e0d8f4 guibg=#103234
hi default GuihuaListHl guifg=#e0d8f4 guibg=#404254

There are other Lsp highlight been used in this plugin, e.g LspReferenceRead/Text/Write are used for document highlight, LspDiagnosticsXXX are used for diagnostic. Please check highlight.lua and dochighlight.lua for more info.


  • lspconfig
  • guihua.lua (provides floating window, FZY)
  • Optional:
    • treesitter (list treesitter symbols, object analysis)
    • lsp-signature (better signature help)

The plugin can be loaded lazily (packer opt = true ), And it will check if optional plugins existance and load those plugins only if they existed.

The terminal will need to be able to output nerdfont and emoji correctly. I am using Kitty with nerdfont (Victor Mono).

Integrat with mason (williamboman/mason.nvim) or lsp_installer (williamboman/nvim-lsp-installer, deprecated)

If you are using mason or lsp_installer and would like to use the lsp servers installed by lsp_installer. Please set

lsp_installer = true  --lsp_installer users, deprecated
mason = true -- mason user

In the config. Also please setup the lsp server from installer setup with server:setup{opts}

lsp-installer example:

        config = function()
          local lsp_installer = require('nvim-lsp-installer')
        config = function()
            lsp_installer = true,

for mason

        config = function()

        requires = {
          { "ray-x/guihua.lua", run = "cd lua/fzy && make" },
          { "neovim/nvim-lspconfig" },
          { "nvim-treesitter/nvim-treesitter" },
        config = function()
            mason = true,

Another way to setup mason is disable navigator lsp setup and using mason setup handlers, pylsp for example

        config = function()
            ["pylsp"] = function()
                on_attach = function(client, bufnr)
                  require("navigator.lspclient.mapping").setup({ client = client, bufnr = bufnr }) -- setup navigator keymaps here,

        requires = {
          { "ray-x/guihua.lua", run = "cd lua/fzy && make" },
          { "nvim-lspconfig" },
          { "nvim-treesitter/nvim-treesitter" },
        config = function()
            mason = true,
            lsp = { disable_lsp = { "pylsp" } },  -- disable pylsp setup from navigator

Please refer to lsp_installer_config for more info

Alternatively, Navigator can be used to startup the server installed by lsp-installer. as it will override the navigator setup

To start LSP installed by lsp_installer, please use following setups

  -- lsp_installer = false -- default value is false
  lsp = {
    tsserver = { cmd = {'your tsserver installed by lsp_installer or mason'} }
    -- e.g. tsserver = { cmd = {'/home/username/.local/share/nvim/mason/packages/typescript-language-server/node_modules/typescript/bin/tsserver'} }


example cmd setup (mac) for pyright :

  -- lsp_installer = false -- default value is false

  lsp = {
    tsserver = {
      cmd = { "/Users/username/.local/share/nvim/lsp_servers/python/node_modules/.bin/pyright-langserver", "--stdio" }
      -- or mason: cmd = { "/Users/username/.local/share/nvim/mason/packages/pyright/node_modules/pyright/index.js", "--stdio"}

The lsp servers installed by nvim-lsp-installer is in following dir

local path = require 'nvim-lsp-installer.path'
local install_root_dir = path.concat {vim.fn.stdpath 'data', 'lsp_servers'}

And you can setup binary full path to this: (e.g. with gopls) install_root_dir .. '/go/gopls' So the config is

local path = require 'nvim-lsp-installer.path'
local install_root_dir = path.concat {vim.fn.stdpath 'data', 'lsp_servers'}

  -- lsp_installer = false -- default value is false

  lsp = {
    gopls = {
      cmd = { install_root_dir .. '/go/gopls' }

Use lsp_installer configs You can delegate the lsp server setup to lsp_installer with server:setup{opts} Here is an example init_lsp_installer.lua

Integration with other lsp plugins (e.g. rust-tools, go.nvim, clangd extension)

There are lots of plugins provides lsp support

  • go.nvim allow you either hook gopls from go.nvim or from navigator and it can export the lsp setup from go.nvim.
  • rust-tools and clangd allow you to setup on_attach from config server
  • lua-dev Dev setup for init.lua and plugin development. Navigator can extend lua setup with lua-dev. Here is an example to setup rust with rust-tools
  lsp = {
    disable_lsp = { "rust_analyzer", "clangd" }, -- will not run rust_analyzer setup from navigator
    ['lua-dev'] = { runtime_path=true }  -- any non default lua-dev setups

  server = {
    on_attach = function(client, bufnr)
      require('navigator.lspclient.mapping').setup({client=client, bufnr=bufnr}) -- setup navigator keymaps here,

      -- otherwise, you can define your own commands to call navigator functions

require("clangd_extensions").setup {
  server = {
    on_attach = function(client, bufnr)
      require('navigator.lspclient.mapping').setup({client=client, bufnr=bufnr}) -- setup navigator keymaps here,
      -- otherwise, you can define your own commands to call navigator functions


Please refer to lua/navigator/lspclient/mapping.lua on key mappings. Should be able to work out-of-box.

  • Use <c-e> or :q! to kill the floating window
  • <up/down> (or <c-n>, <c-p>) to move
  • <c-o> or <CR> to open location or apply code actions. Note: <CR> might be bound in insert mode by other plugins


In navigator.lua there is a default configuration. You can override the values by passing your own values


-- The attach will be call at end of navigator on_attach()
require'navigator'.setup({on_attach = function(client, bufnr) require 'illuminate'.on_attach(client)})


Highlight I am using:

  • LspReferenceRead, LspReferenceText and LspReferenceWrite are used for autocmd CursorHold <buffer> lua vim.lsp.buf.document_highlight() That is where you saw the current symbol been highlighted.

  • GuihuaListDark and GuihuaTextViewDark is used for floating listvew and TextView. They are be based on current background (Normal) and PmenuSel

  • In future, I will use NormalFloat for floating view. But ATM, most of colorscheme does not define NormalFloat

You can override the above highlight to fit your current colorscheme

Debug the plugin

One simple way to gether debug info and understand what is wrong is output the debug logs

  debug = false, -- log output, set to true and log path: ~/.local/share/nvim/gh.log

-- a example of adding logs in the plugin

local log = require"navigator.util".log

local definition_hdlr = util.mk_handler(function(err, locations, ctx, _)
  -- output your log
  log('[definition] log for locations', locations, "and ctx", ctx)
  if err ~= nil then

Break changes and known issues

known issues I am working on


  • The project is in the early phase, bugs expected, PRs and suggestions are welcome
  • Async (some of the requests is slow on large codebases and might be good to use co-rountine)
  • More clients. I use go, python, js/ts, java, c/cpp, lua most of the time. Did not test other languages (e.g dart, swift etc)
  • Configuration options
