guifont in Spacevim
In my tour of Neovim starter kits, I landed on SpaceVim
I started my Emacs journey with Spacemacs, and used it for couple of years before settling on Doom Emacs.
Spacemacs inspired SpaceVim.
I had liked the mnenomic keybindings in Spacemacs (and now in SpaceVim)
But Spacevim is different from how other starter kits handle configuration.
Last week, I tried DoomVim (inspired by Doom Emacs) and NVChad (and “Neovim from scratch” by same folks as LunarVim)
They all had similar configuration, based on
But SpaceVim has its own style.
For starters, it uses
init.toml for the configuration.
Also, it uses
bundle instead of
packer (which I had grown used to)
Nonetheless, using SpaceVim was pleasant experience.
But I was unable to set
guifont and thus saw empty square at one place, and font was too big for me.
If I didn’t use Neovide i.e. use nvim in terminal, I could see the icons in place of empty square, but I want to use GUI.
Turns out there is a bug (somewhere)
(At least) Neovide returns
guifont value is never set internally.
Then I unconditionally set guifont in my local
For now, it works.
Let us see how long I stick with SpaceVim.
I got LSP working for Ruby, more tweaks like
ltex are pending. (and SymbolOutline, and IndentBlankLine and …..)
