  • mini.nvim

    Library of 35+ independent Lua modules improving overall Neovim (version 0.7 and higher) experience with minimal effort

    Most of mini.nvim modules are designed for require('').setup() to provide the best possible features out of the box. The ones with biggest quality of life improvement utilities for me are '', 'mini.surround', 'mini.pairs', 'mini.basics', 'mini.bracketed', 'mini.bufremove', 'mini.cursorword'. Of course, there are more UI stuff which I like but not necessarily fit others taste.

  • vim-smoothie

    Smooth scrolling for Vim done right🥤

    dirbuf.nvim (or oil.nvim), the genius thing is that it is really just one mapping, plus stuff you already know. Foke's todo-comments.nvim is another typical one, but you're probably aware of that if using Noice. Smooth scrolling plugins? My favourite for some reason is still vim-smoothie, not the Lua alternatives.

    My current favorite is AstroNvim:, with an awesome introduction video:
