extension guid lua mit license vim

This Neovim plugin simplifies common operations when working with Globally Unique Identifiers (GUIDs). The produced values fully conform to the RFC 4122 spec for pseudo-random GUIDs. Classic Vim is not supported.

Configuration

The plugin should be configured by calling the setup function. Options may be provided to override the default settings which are shown below:

require('guid').setup({
    comma_space = false,
    default_style = 'd',
    object_char = 'g'
})

These options are:

GUID Formatting

The format specifier syntax outlined by Guid.ToString is borrowed for styling GUID text representation. The case of the format specifier determines whether lowercase or uppercase will be used.

GUID Commands

GUID Text Object

A custom text object for GUIDs is provided. By default it is bound to the g key. For example to yank a GUID you would input yig in normal mode. The functionally identical yag can also be used. The GUID text object supports all of the GUID text representations described above. Be sure to call setup if you wish to use GUID text objects.
