    Install from package

    Pre-built packages for Windows, macOS, and Linux are found on the Releases page.

    Managed packages are in Homebrew, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Arch Linux, Void Linux, Gentoo, and more!

    Install from source

    See the Building Neovim wiki page for details.

    The build is CMake-based, but a Makefile is provided as a convenience. After installing the dependencies, run the following command.

    make CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo
    sudo make install

    To install to a non-default location:

    make CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/full/path/
    make install

    CMake hints for inspecting the build:

    • cmake --build build --target help lists all build targets.
    • build/CMakeCache.txt (or cmake -LAH build/) contains the resolved values of all CMake variables.
    • build/compile_commands.json shows the full compiler invocations for each translation unit.

    Transitioning from Vim

    See :help nvim-from-vim for instructions.
