Installation

  1. Install a Nerd Font compatible font or patch your own. Then set your terminal font (or guifont if you are using GUI version of Vim).
  2. Install the Vim plugin with your favorite plugin manager, e.g. vim-plug:

    Plug 'ryanoasis/vim-devicons'
    

    Always load the vim-devicons as the very last one.

  3. Configure Vim

    set encoding=UTF-8
    

    No need to set explicitly under Neovim: always uses UTF-8 as the default encoding.

See Installation for detailed setup instructions

Use :help devicons for further configuration.
