    neovim/nvim-lspconfig is used for LSP configuration. In particular, lsp-zero.nvim is not needed. But in the configuration, the keybindings from both packages are linked and listed.

    And just to clarify (not sure if this information is useful to you), lsp-zero only adds to the LSP server settings for the "capabilities" property and an on_attach function. Anything else is provided by nvim-lspconfig or mason-lspconfig.

    Hello! I recently started using nvim after using vim on and off for some time. I've been using LazyVim since it seemed to have a good baseline configuration for me. I mostly develop in Java so I wanted to get additional features by using nvim-jdtls instead of the bundled nvim-lspconfig.
  • The v2.x branch of lsp-zero is available for testing

    For those who don't know, lsp-zero is a plugin that bundles a configuration for nvim-lspconfig and nvim-cmp. The original idea was to make a setup for the built-in LSP client that didn't require too much effort.

    To be fair nvim-lspconfig does make it easy to "connect" a language server with Neovim. That's all you need (and the language server itself, of course). People really struggle with the autocompletion part. Trying to replicate the exact behaviour of other editors is not that easy.
  • What's the coolest thing you've done with Neovim?
    11 projects | reddit.com/r/neovim | 4 Mar 2023
    The coolest thing I've done is now I can code scheme lisp with help from my own LSP server named named scheme-langserver. With nvim-lspconfig and many other plugins, developing is really friendly. And many convenient fucntionalities such as autocompletion, goto definition are really helped and will help other lisp coder. Now, I hope my work will make NeoVim the better lisp editor than Emacs Lol.
