Pasting into a terminal buffer

Yanking and pasting works seemlessly between Neovim’s regular buffers and terminal buffers. In this video, we’ll look at how the Normal mode paste command works in a terminal buffer, and we’ll create a mapping to help with pasting text directly from Terminal mode.

Creating mappings for :terminal

Neovim lets us create mappings using the meta key. In this video, we’ll set up some mappings to make it easier to exit from Terminal mode. We’ll also set up mappings using the meta key with h, j, k, and l to switch between split windows.

Using selected text in UltiSnips snippets

When UltiSnips is triggered from Visual mode it captures the selection and makes it available to our snippets. We can then insert the selection unchanged with the $VISUAL placeholder, or we can use UltiSnips Python interpolation to transform the text before inserting it back into the document.

Using Python interpolation in UltiSnips snippets

UltiSnips can execute Python code and interpolate the result into a snippet. This makes it possible to create snippets that react to the text entered in each field. We’ll look at an example that performs a simple calculation and inserts the result into our document.
