    Primeagen has a series, you could also try spacevim or lunarvim( i prefer lunarvim). If you want to read the docs and setup yourself 1. lsp and code completion mentioned in #5. 2. treesitter 3. lsp handles that, you have to install java's lsp, this improves its look. 4. Make your own remaps, some languages have a plugin for this but i can't find one for java, this is the one for rust. 5. Install cmp and one of the snippet engines.

    Funny you should mention it, I wrote a complete syntax file for Rust with regex and didn't have much trouble with it. I personally think the :syntax API is awesome.

    I use neovim and I use vim-plug. I ran :PlugInstall on Rust.Vim and Coc-Rust-Analyzer (which I also had to install nodejs and npm) and it's just not working well at all. It keeps saying it can't find the location of my rust-analyzer binary even though I ran the :PlugInstall.
