This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/neovim

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • mini.nvim

    Library of 20+ independent Lua modules improving overall Neovim (version 0.7 and higher) experience with minimal effort

    If getting to know 23 modules is too much for people, I'd recommend starting with these 5: - mini.ai - mini.cursorword - mini.indentscope - mini.starter - mini.surround

  • .dotfiles

    My automatic dev machine setup scripts and configs (by protiumx)

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • dirbuf.nvim

    A file manager for Neovim which lets you edit your filesystem like you edit text

    Shout-out to dirbuf.nvim as it is one of my favorite plugins I cannot live without, but I see it rarely mentioned. It allows you to do file management by editing a file, so you can do anything you would do to edit any regular file. There are no new keymaps to learn, you just use any regular motion, :s, :g, or anything you can think of. Great for bulk renaming!

  • awesome-neovim

    Collections of awesome neovim plugins.

    I think the de factor place for this is awesome-neovim. It's gotten really big, so needs a bit of reading.

  • oil.nvim

    Neovim file explorer: edit your filesystem like a buffer

    I love the concept of editing file trees like a buffer! Recently oil.nvim has been created which seems to be an improvement of dirbuf. I wish that instead of introducing a completely new UI one could keep using existing tree viewers though (and edit the files/directories in insert mode). (I'm working on exactly that right now, a new plugin based on oil.nvim;))
