I'm not finding much out there in terms of docs about using copilot with regular vim (everything I've come across is about using it with nvim / neovim)
The copilot.vim docs mention it should support newer versions of vim "9.0.0162 or newer", so I've built vim from source and installed it, ran
:Copilot setup successfully, and it seems to be partially working. However it doesn't provide any suggestions inline while typing.
:Copilot status reports: "Copilot: Neovim 0.6 required to support ghost text" so I'm guessing there is a problem with the parts that show the inline preview.
If I open the
:Copilot panel I can see it's suggestions and accept them with the enter button, but it's unwieldy to use via the separate panel.
So are there any guides or anwers about how to get this working better in regular vim? Thank you
