  • nvim-lspconfig

    Project mention: JetBrains' unremovable AI assistant meets irresistible outcry | | 2024-02-03

    I suggest looking for blog posts about this, you're gunnuh wanna pick out a plugin manager and stuff. It's kind of like a package manager for neovim. You can install everything manually but usually you manually install a plugin manager and it gives you commands to manage the rest of your plugins.

    These two plugins are the bare minimum in my view.

    Treesitter gives you much better syntax highlighting based on a parser for a given language.

    This plugin helps you connect to a given language LSP quickly with sensible defaults. You more or less pick your language from here and copy paste a snippet, and then install the relevant LSP:

    For Python you'll want pylsp. For JavaScript it will depend on what frontend framework you're using, I probably can't help you there.

    pylsp itself takes some plugins and you'll probably want them.

    Best of luck! Happy hacking.

  • tokyonight.nvim

    🏙 A clean, dark Neovim theme written in Lua, with support for lsp, treesitter and lots of plugins. Includes additional themes for Kitty, Alacritty, iTerm and Fish.

    Project mention: Closest thing to tokyonight.nvim that works with standard vim? | /r/neovim | 2023-12-07

    I have several production servers I work on that we use standard vim9 on to edit config files, etc. I love tokyonight.nvim and would love to be able to use it or something as close to it at possible with vim9, but have yet to be able to find anything. Any suggestions?

  • nvim

    🍨 Soothing pastel theme for (Neo)vim

    Project mention: Benchmarking some of my favourite neovim plugins over time | /r/neovim | 2023-07-12
  • indent-blankline.nvim

    Indent guides for Neovim

    Project mention: Use the builtin `listchars` option to implement minimalistic indent guides | /r/neovim | 2023-12-07

    Compared to the feature-rich plugins, this simple implementation has many drawbacks, such as not displaying indent guides on empty lines. I think its only advantage might be its extreme simplicity. Yes, I pursue minimalism so I wrote this piece of code. For a better (maybe best) and more comprehensive experience, please check indent-blankline.nvim.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • bufferline.nvim

    A snazzy bufferline for Neovim

    Project mention: Get vim background on plugin configuration | /r/neovim | 2023-09-24

    So, I'm using bufferline and I want to setup some highlight colors based on the current Neovim theme (light or dark). While Neovim is working, if I run :lua print(vim.o.background) effectively gives me light or dark according to the current Neovim theme. BUT, doing so in the plugin's configuration does not work:

  • nvim-autopairs

    autopairs for neovim written in lua

    Project mention: nvim-autopairs getting out of a pair with tab | /r/neovim | 2023-10-24

    I would like to be able to jump out of a pair generated by nvim-autopairs ( using a Tab. To me it is impossible to get out of the habit of using tab for it, as placing an autopair looks and feel like a snippet, and I typically move out of a snippet with a tab.

  • command-t

    ⌨️ Fast file navigation for Neovim and Vim

  • nvimdots

    A well configured and structured Neovim.

    Project mention: Catppuccin with color & highlight overrides. Thanks to nvimdots! | /r/neovim | 2023-04-15

  • orgmode

    Orgmode clone written in Lua for Neovim 0.9+.

    Project mention: Neorg – organize your life in Neovim | | 2024-03-26

    nvim-orgmode [1] is also available. Knowledge from emacs orgmode should carry over without much issue. I didn't feel like there was a need to reinvent the wheel like neorg does when there were powerful notetaking solutions available; does anyone have a comparison breakdown of features and capabilities?

    Project mention: TreePin! A prototype of my plugin for pinning parts of code to the edges of the screen (Apologies for the GIF artifacts) | /r/neovim | 2023-07-10

    Very cool! Sort of reminds me of treesitter-context. Any chance for compatibility? An example could be you either would disable context when something is pinned or somehow displace it other, depending on which is "on top" could be neat.

  • barbar.nvim

    The neovim tabline plugin.

    Project mention: Neovim workflow | /r/neovim | 2023-04-30

    considering your vscode background when you say tabs your really mean buffers( Trust me even i had this problem when I made the switch). So your solution here is using a plugin. There are many but I personally use barbar.nvim
