  • neorg

    Modernity meets insane extensibility. The future of organizing your life in Neovim.

    Project mention: Sooooo... are we going to have a plugin system or no? :) | | 2022-08-06

    Here's a story like you're describing above; this guy was not a programmer at all, but a writer, and was looking for a tool that fit his needs better than the word processors he was using. So he did some research and found that the org-mode layer fit his needs exactly. There is now also the NeoOrg plugin for neovim so there's no problem at all implementing whatever you need using a plugin system.

  • bling

    Utilities for the awesome window manager

    Project mention: New to awesome, have a few questions | | 2022-06-22

    Widgets are typically obtained by either using widget collections, such a Vicious or Bling, by "extracting" them from other people's repos or by just writing them yourself. Note that, to customize awesome, you really do want to learn how to use the widget system, as otherwise, you'd be missing out on one of awesome's greatest strengths. Also, no, it doesn't matter which distro you use. They are almost always distro independent (except for maybe something like a package update notifier or something, as that really can't be done distro independently). It does however matter whether you use the stable release (4.3 as of now) or the current git master, as stable is about 3 years old while the git master is in very active development. Some of the cooler widgets may only work on the git master branch.

  • auto-session

    A small automated session manager for Neovim

    Project mention: Auto Session - Updated to track cwd changes! | | 2022-08-07

  • gruvbox.nvim

    Lua port of the most famous vim colorscheme

    Project mention: A Minimal Lua Setup (>^.^)> | | 2022-07-18

    If you wanted to have a purely Lua config there is a Lua port of the Gruvbox colour scheme, which also allows for customisation.

  • betaflight-tx-lua-scripts

    Collection of scripts to configure Betaflight from your TX (currently only supported in OpenTx)

  • playground

    Treesitter playground integrated into Neovim

    Project mention: nvim-ts-rainbow improved highlighting of JSX | | 2022-08-08

    Also, check out the nvim-treesitter/playground to try the queries with fast feedback.

  • goto-preview

    A small Neovim plugin for previewing definitions using floating windows.

    Project mention: Is there a way to have LSP open a new scratch buffer with the function signature (and/or) documentation? | | 2021-12-04

    This one is pretty good.

  • nvim-treesitter-refactor

    Refactor module for nvim-treesitter

    Project mention: Very slow input latency for haskell when treesitter highlighting is enabled | | 2022-08-08

    Treesitter performance is a hard problem. First, check the following: 1. Do you use nvim_treesitter#foldexpr()? Try not to use foldmethod=expr in insert mode. Or just switch to nvim-ufo. 2. Do you use nvim-treesitter-refactor's highlight_definitions or highlight_current_scope? These features do slower the performance. Try to disable these features. 3. I've heard some language parser is not good in terms of performance. Since I don't write haskell, I can't help you here. But you can create issue in nvim-treesitter.

  • lit

    Toolkit for developing, sharing, and running luvit/lua programs and libraries. (by luvit)

    Project mention: Proxies with luvit api | | 2022-01-27

  • themer.lua

    Project mention: Is there a framework that makes it easy to create themes? | | 2022-03-15
  • startup.nvim

  • session-lens

    A session-switcher extension for rmagatti/auto-session using Telescope.nvim

    Project mention: which session manager for nvim | | 2022-02-23

    auto-session * Automatically save AND load session based on cwd * Customizable with optional hooks when saving and loading a session * Has a companion plugin for switching sessions through a telescope picker called session-lens

  • telescope-repo.nvim

    🦘 Jump into the repositories (git, mercurial…) of your filesystem with telescope.nvim, without any setup

    Project mention: [Telescope] Convert shell function to edit frequent files to a picker? | | 2022-04-25

    If you really need to keep a list of editable files, I don't think there's a built-in for that. You could either try: - making your own picker (maybe telescope-repo could serve as an inspiration); - maintain a list of symlinked files into a directory and find_files from there.

  • yaml.nvim

    🍒 YAML toolkit for Neovim users

    Project mention: Yaml-Revealer: a plugin to easily navigate through a yaml file | | 2022-01-03
