How to setup Unity with NvChad (Neovim + Unity)

Neovim, a powerful text editor and a modern fork of Vim, has gained popularity among developers due to its flexibility and extensive customization options. If you’re a Unity developer looking to harness the power of IntelliSense in Neovim, this guide is for you. By following a few simple steps, you’ll be able to configure Neovim with NvChad to provide intelligent code completion and suggestions while working on your Unity projects. Let’s get started!


Before we begin, make sure you have the following prerequisites installed on your system:

  • Neovim
  • NvChad
  • Unity

Step 1: Install Omnisharp and Omnisharp Mono

To ensure that both the OmniSharp and OmniSharp Mono Language Server Protocols (LSPs) are correctly installed using mason.nvim in your Neovim setup, you’ll want to follow a series of steps. mason.nvim is a Neovim plugin that simplifies the installation and management of LSPs, formatters, linters, and other development tools directly within the Neovim ecosystem.

Step 2: Update the NvChad config

Now we need to make sure that we call the right command using Omnisharp.

-- Anywhere in your configuration

local lspconfig = require "lspconfig"
local pid = vim.fn.getpid()

  cmd = { "omnisharp-mono", "--languageserver", "--hostPID", tostring(pid) },

Step 3: Open Unity Project

With everything set up, you can now open your Unity project in Neovim and start coding with the benefits of IntelliSense and code completion.

  1. Navigate to your Unity project’s directory using the cd command.
  2. Launch Neovim.
  3. Open your Unity script files (C# files) using Neovim.

Now, as you work on your Unity scripts, Omnisharp Mono will provide intelligent code suggestions, completion, and analysis in Neovim, helping you be more productive while coding.

Remember to save your Neovim configuration file and restart Neovim after making changes to ensure they take effect.

That’s it! You have successfully set up Unity with NvChad and integrated Omnisharp Mono enhance your Unity development experience in Neovim. Enjoy coding!
