Better Refactoring

refactoring.nvim uses nvim-treesitter to provide basic refactoring features previously only available in an IDE.

Currently, it supports the following refactoring operations (as per the Refactoring book by Martin Fowler).

  • 106: Extract Function
  • 119: Extract Variable
  • 123: Inline Variable

Besides, it also comes with debugging features to automate the insertion and cleanup of print statements.

To install it using packer.nvim,

use {
event = "VimEnter",
config = function()

In the refactoring.lua file, I configure it to show up using Telescope.
