    Like many using Neovim, I'm leveraging the Nvim-Cmp plugin. With this plugin, I get the snippets, code completion, and documentation on functions that I'm used to that help me out when my brain slows.

    Doing a fast scan on the commit history this is probably related to https://github.com/hrsh7th/nvim-cmp/pull/1689 . Hope it helps.
  • Do I need NeoVIM?

    https://github.com/hrsh7th/nvim-cmp This is an autocompletion engine https://github.com/nvim-treesitter/nvim-treesitter This allows NeoVim to install parsing scripts so NeoVim can do things like code highlighting. https://github.com/williamboman/mason.nvim Not strictly necessary, but allows you to access a repo of LSP, install them, and configure them for without you actively messing about in config files. https://github.com/neovim/nvim-lspconfig Also not strictly necessary, but vastly simplifies LSP setup. https://github.com/williamboman/mason-lspconfig.nvim This lets the above two plugins talk to each other more easily.
