Here are two screenshots, with vim and neovim, both with configured language server protocol and showing same file:

Neovim: neovim

Vim: vim

I want to configure neovim to have same style as vim -- I do not like warning message to appear mixed with my code. What is the name of the option?


1 Answer 1


As far as I can tell the term for that feature is inline diagnostics. I don't see any obvious source (like neovim help) for an answer to how to disable it but I found these two possible solutions:

vim.lsp.handlers["textDocument/publishDiagnostics"] = vim.lsp.with(
    vim.lsp.diagnostic.on_publish_diagnostics, {
        virtual_text = false

Source: How to disable inline buffer error messages?

lua << EOF
  local nvim_lsp = require'nvim_lsp'
  -- Disable Diagnostcs globally
  vim.lsp.handlers["textDocument/publishDiagnostics"] = function() end

Source: [Neovim LSP] How to disable diagnostics?

Note: I modified the second answer slightly as the original used a deprecated variable name.

Update: Feedback from OP as follows...

The first solution removes the inline diagnostics. You can get diagnostics in a floating window with command vim.lsp.diagnostic.show_line_diagnostics().

The GitHub page for LSP client configuration shows this mapping for that command:

buf_set_keymap('n', '<space>e', '<cmd>lua vim.lsp.diagnostic.show_line_diagnostics()<CR>', opts)

Finally, apparently the first solution above can also be found here: :help lsp-handler.

  • Second one does not work for me -- there is no such thing as vim.lsp.callbacks. And if I replace it with vim.lsp.handlers, mark in left columns disappears fully.

  • First approach works -- inline text disappears, mark on the left stays. I get see message in pop-up menu via vim.lsp.diagnostic.show_line_diagnostics(). Not exactly the same as in vim, but good enough for my needs.

  • You may want to add it into your answer for future readers. I mapped "<space>e" as instructed here: github.com/neovim/nvim-lspconfig

  • First answer could be found starting from ":help lsp-handler".
