    It is flatly the wrong mindset to think of vim as an IDE. vim is a code editor: get in, make change, get out. Consider vim koans, which are a fun little read. You can throw coc.nvim at Neovim, along with a few other bits to give you a Good Enough setup, but vim isn't and will never be an IDE.
  • C# lsp configuration with neovim CoC
    4 projects | /r/neovim | 10 Nov 2023
    I'm currently on an old setup (using coc and polyglot) and nvim v0.6.1. I'll be updating to a more modern setup within next year, using the native lsp and building nvim more frequently. But that's not today.

    There are some plugins which have the best documentations I have ever seen, but you need to read it from the Vim.

    Example of coc.nvim: https://github.com/neoclide/coc.nvim/blob/master/doc/coc.txt

    Actually you can with coc.nvim & coc-sh. So long as shellcheck is also installed and in PATH, it'll integrate with coc/vim just fine.
  • how to set up coc.nvim extension on offline machine?
    2 projects | /r/vim | 7 Jun 2023
    When you install an extension it runs an npm install or yarn, iirc, which is going to be problematic for you being offline. I was going to say you could copy that ~/.config/coc folder directly to the other machine but yeah, Windows, no idea. You see here https://github.com/neoclide/coc.nvim/wiki/Using-coc-extensions
  • GCC autocompletion
    2 projects | /r/vim | 30 May 2023
    You can try https://github.com/neoclide/coc.nvim, the pre-requisite is to install nodeJS, then to install all the languages LSP. This works for me for Angular, Rust, JavaScript, Vimscript, etc
  • NeoVim & Rust
    7 projects | /r/rust | 26 May 2023
    But for « intellisense » and completion you can use this https://github.com/neoclide/coc.nvim it works with rust-analyser so it executes a cargo check and fmt every time you save the file as well.
