I have just set up the Nvim-R plugin for Neovim to send lines of code from an .R-file opened with Neovim to a terminal inside a tmux session.

Previously, I have worked with its predecessor Vim-R, which is no longer being maintained.

In the old Vim-R, it was easy to send a visually selected block of code to the terminal by pressing the r key while in visual mode after adding the following line to my .vimrc:

let g:vimrplugin_map_r = 1

However, this feature seems to be deprecated in the new Nvim-R-plugin. As a workaround I have tried to add the following line to my .vimrc:

vmap <Space> <Plug>RDSendSelection 

This actually allows me to send a visually selected section to the terminal, however, it always includes the next non-empty line after the selection, which is irritating. This is especially so, because it even ignores multiple blank lines.

How can I modify this behavior?

  • I think you should ask the question to the plugin's developer, github.com/jalvesaq/Nvim-R/issues/new – nobe4 May 6 '16 at 10:06

    Thanks for the pointer. I will try that, too and update this post if I get a reply. – matthias May 6 '16 at 10:08

  • I don't think this is worth to be posted as an answer since it was just an issue with trailing spaces in my .vimrc file. However, another user had the same issue, hence I'll leave the link to the issue discussion on Github. – matthias May 9 '16 at 6:23
