fix: check if bufdata.last_win != nil (#356)
When opening nvim in diffview (`nvim -c DiffviewOpen`) and then toggeling aerial,
aerial errors when trying to call `vim.api.nvim_win_is_valid(bufdata.last_win)`
as bufdata.last_win == nil. This change adds a check and returns in case of a nil
value.

Setup

Somewhere in your init.lua you will need to call aerial.setup(). See below for a full list of options.

require("aerial").setup({
  -- optionally use on_attach to set keymaps when aerial has attached to a buffer
  on_attach = function(bufnr)
    -- Jump forwards/backwards with '{' and '}'
    vim.keymap.set("n", "{", "<cmd>AerialPrev<CR>", { buffer = bufnr })
    vim.keymap.set("n", "}", "<cmd>AerialNext<CR>", { buffer = bufnr })
  end,
})
-- You probably also want to set a keymap to toggle aerial
vim.keymap.set("n", "<leader>a", "<cmd>AerialToggle!<CR>")

In addition, you will need to have either Treesitter or a working LSP client. You can configure your preferred source(s) with the backends option (see Options). The default is to prefer Treesitter when it's available and fall back to LSP.

Third-party integrations

Telescope

If you have telescope installed, there is an extension for fuzzy finding and jumping to symbols. It functions similarly to the builtin lsp_document_symbols picker, the main difference being that it uses the aerial backend for the source (e.g. LSP, treesitter, etc) and that it filters out some symbols (see the filter_kind option).

You can activate the picker with :Telescope aerial or :lua require("telescope").extensions.aerial.aerial()

If you want the command to autocomplete, you can load the extension first:

require("telescope").load_extension("aerial")

The extension can be customized with the following options:

require("telescope").setup({
  extensions = {
    aerial = {
      -- Display symbols as <root>.<parent>.<symbol>
      show_nesting = {
        ["_"] = false, -- This key will be the default
        json = true, -- You can set the option for specific filetypes
        yaml = true,
      },
    },
  },
})

fzf

If you have fzf installed you can trigger fuzzy finding with :call aerial#fzf(). To create a mapping:

nmap <silent> <leader>ds <cmd>call aerial#fzf()<cr>

Lualine

There is a lualine component to display the symbols for your current cursor position

require("lualine").setup({
  sections = {
    lualine_x = { "aerial" },

    -- Or you can customize it
    lualine_y = {
      {
        "aerial",
        -- The separator to be used to separate symbols in status line.
        sep = " ) ",

        -- The number of symbols to render top-down. In order to render only 'N' last
        -- symbols, negative numbers may be supplied. For instance, 'depth = -1' can
        -- be used in order to render only current symbol.
        depth = nil,

        -- When 'dense' mode is on, icons are not rendered near their symbols. Only
        -- a single icon that represents the kind of current symbol is rendered at
        -- the beginning of status line.
        dense = false,

        -- The separator to be used to separate symbols in dense mode.
        dense_sep = ".",

        -- Color the symbol icons.
        colored = true,
      },
    },
  },
})

Highlight

There are highlight groups created for each SymbolKind. There will be one for the name of the symbol (Aerial<SymbolKind>, and one for the icon (Aerial<SymbolKind>Icon). For example:

hi link AerialClass Type
hi link AerialClassIcon Special
hi link AerialFunction Special
hi AerialFunctionIcon guifg=#cb4b16 guibg=NONE guisp=NONE gui=NONE cterm=NONE

" There's also this group for the fallback of the text if a specific
" class highlight isn't defined
hi link AerialNormal Normal
" There's also this group for the cursor position
hi link AerialLine QuickFixLine
" If highlight_mode="split_width", you can set a separate color for the
" non-current location highlight
hi AerialLineNC guibg=Gray

" You can customize the guides (if show_guide=true)
hi link AerialGuide Comment
" You can set a different guide color for each level
hi AerialGuide1 guifg=Red
hi AerialGuide2 guifg=Blue

API

TreeSitter queries

When writing queries, the following captures and metadata are used by Aerial:

  • @symbol - required capture for the logical region being captured

  • kind - required metadata, a string value matching one of vim.lsp.protocol.SymbolKind

  • @name - capture to extract a name from its text

  • @start - a start of the match, influences matching of cursor position to aerial tree, defaults to @symbol

  • @end - an end of the match, influences matching of cursor position to aerial tree, defaults to @start

  • @selection - position to jump to when using Aerial for navigation, falls back to @name and @symbol

  • @scope - a node naming a scope for the match, its text is used to generate a custom "Comment" linked highlight for the entry, with exception of "public"

    A @scope node with text "developers" will result in its entry in the tree having an "AerialDevelopers" highlight applied to it.

  • scope - a metadata value serving the same role as @scope capture, overriding aforementioned capture

Note: a capture's text can be set or modified with #set! and #gsub! respectively.

FAQ

Q: I accidentally opened a file into the aerial window and it looks bad. How can I prevent this from happening?

Try installing stickybuf. It was designed to prevent exactly this problem.
