    A command-line installer for Windows.

    I prefer scoop over choco. I like the way it installs the software in a scoop directory instead in of using the default program directories. And no admin rights needed.

    If you want a graphical interface for neovim then neovide is pretty nice.

  • neovim

    Vim-fork focused on extensibility and usability

    It’s funny you mention MSYS2. Just yesterday I attempted to use Neovim in it and had an odd issue that I don’t see with the scoop version. I’m curious if anyone else runs into it.
