Do I need NeoVIM?

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

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • kickstart.nvim

    A launch point for your personal nvim configuration

    After you’ve gotten used to that, I would start using Neovim using kickstart.nvim as a base and building your config off of that. It is a fantastic starting point for your first config and has LOTS of comments to help you understand what is going on.

  • dotfiles

    A completion plugin for neovim coded in Lua.

    https://github.com/hrsh7th/nvim-cmp This is an autocompletion engine https://github.com/nvim-treesitter/nvim-treesitter This allows NeoVim to install parsing scripts so NeoVim can do things like code highlighting. https://github.com/williamboman/mason.nvim Not strictly necessary, but allows you to access a repo of LSP, install them, and configure them for without you actively messing about in config files. https://github.com/neovim/nvim-lspconfig Also not strictly necessary, but vastly simplifies LSP setup. https://github.com/williamboman/mason-lspconfig.nvim This lets the above two plugins talk to each other more easily.

  • lazy.nvim

    💤 A modern plugin manager for Neovim

    It is possible to manage plugins yourself, but I would recommend a plugin manager such as Lazy (https://github.com/folke/lazy.nvim). There are many more plugins that most would argue are virtually essential, but these should at least be able to get you some autocompletion and highlighting without too much messing about. Be sure to read the install instructions for each of these plugins!
