How can I copy the current file name and line number to the system clipboard, formatted like this:


And how can I map this to a leader key command?

1 Answer 1


The necessary command is :let @+ = expand('%') . ':' . line(".")

This can be mapped to a leader key command like this:

:nmap <Leader>l <Esc>:let @+ = expand('%') . ':' . line(".")<CR>

The equivalent in Lua for NeoVim is:

set("n", "<Leader>l", ":let @+ = expand('%') . ':' . line('.')<cr>")
