            1. Install Git for Windows if you haven't already installed it.

            2. Add the following line to your init.vim file.

              let $PATH = "C:\Program\ Files\Git\usr\bin;" . $PATH

            3. Save and Reload NeoVim.

            How to close FZF without select any result in VIM
            Asked 2021-May-25 at 19:44

            I use fzf.vim to quickly find files in my projects in neovim.

            Sometimes either because I can't find what I'm looking for or because I forgot to do something before open the new file, I need to cancel and close the pop up window without selecting any result.

            Currently to do that I press to enter in normal mode and then :q but ideally it would be much faster to map it to a key combination such as

            How could I map keybindings that target only the FZF window? or Is there any key combination that already close the popup window without any further action?

            Thanks in advance

            You're making two mistakes in your .zshrc file:

            1. If you do source $ZSH/oh-my-zsh.sh, then you shouldn't also do autoload -U compinit && compinit, because the former includes the latter.
            2. plugins=( ... ) should be done before doing source $ZSH/oh-my-zsh.sh. The former does not do anything by itself.

            So, change the top of your .zshrc file to this:

            How to start fzf from another directory the the current working directory?
            Asked 2021-Apr-18 at 10:08

            I often use fzf to navigate the filesystem, especially the Alt-c key binding.

            When invoked, fzf generates a list from the current working directory.

            Is it possible to make fzf generate a list from a specified directory?

            I have tried fzf

            , but it results in an error (unknown option). Also, I can't find any options like -C for specifying the start directory.

            I had a more general issue which might be useful for you. The following is from a blog post I wrote about it:

            Configuring FZF to search useful directories beyond the working directory

            I use fzf both as a command line tool and from within Vim using the fzf.vim plugin. It makes finding (and opening) files intuitive, fast, and frees you from needing to remember their location or exact name. By default, fzf searches recursively within the current directory, which is often just what you want. If you need to search for a file in some directory beyond the current working directory you need to specify that path as an argument to fzf, after which it's business as usual (fzf will recursively search the specified directory).

            The Problem

            It always felt a shame to have to occasionally precisely specify a path in order to get a fuzzy search going... precisely specifying a path is the exact thing that fzf is supposed to unburden your from! My initial approach was to supply the home directory path and let fzf search everything, the home directory path can be specified in only a couple of characters so there's no real burden in that case.

            The problem with doing this is that you end up searching a lot of directories which you know don't have the file you want. The main offenders were directories you end up with if you install say, anaconda3. The results would be swamped with thousands of internal files, with very long paths. The long paths tended to 'soak up' any letters I entered in the search, so it was difficult for fzf to filter them out.

            The Solution

            You can choose which searching tool fzf uses under the hood. The default is the standard linux find command, but you can also use fd, ripgrep or silver searcher. Apart from being a lot faster than the default find, these latter tools respect .gitignore files. This means that fzf will skip any files or directories listed in a .gitignore file. We can turn this feature to our advantage.

            First, we install fd. If you run Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) or newer, you can install the officially maintained package:

            CoC: Diagnostic window takes over screen
            Asked 2021-Apr-01 at 20:16

            I am setting up neovim, with CoC.

            It seems to work well, but with one big problem: My diagnostic windows are very large

            I am not sure why this is. I would expect this to be only a few lines. Ideally, it should show up somewhere not directly over the code, but I'm not sure how to configure this.

            This is my neovim config:

            Unable to properly disown AppImage
            Asked 2021-Mar-10 at 22:01

            Been tinkering tonight but am unable to find a solution.

            I've written a small script that I call with a "popup-shell" and that uses fzf to select a file. I pass this file to marktext appimage and disown the process, after which the "popup-shell" closes. Unfortunately, upon shell closure, the marktext app is also closed.

            I think the problem lies in that the executable is properly disowned, but the appimage mount-stuff is still subprocessing to the "popup-shell". Once the "popup-shell" close, so does the appimage mount-stuff, which in turn will cause marktext to close.

            Some .zshrc settings aren't loaded
            Asked 2021-Jan-22 at 13:46

            I have a MacBook with Iterm2 with Zshell (zsh) and one of the add-ons I have is the command line fuzzy finder (fzf), but despite being added to my .zshrc it doesn't work. If I manually load it with source ~/.fzf.zsh it works, and if I then reload my .zshrc source ~/.zshrc it doesn't work again.

            What could be the reason?

            Here's most of my .zshrc file (see the line: # add fuzzy find):



            Answered 2021-Jan-22 at 13:46

            Something you do in .zshrc following source ~/.fzf.zsh breaks it. Make sure ~/.fzf.zsh occurs after that, most easily accomplished by moving it to the end of the file.
