  • AstroVim

    AstroNvim is an aesthetic and feature-rich neovim config that is extensible and easy to use with a great set of plugins [Moved to: https://github.com/AstroNvim/AstroNvim]

    Neovim: with the “extension packs” https://github.com/LunarVim/LunarVim or https://github.com/kabinspace/AstroVim and a decent learning curve, you can find yourself to have an extremely customizable IDE-like environment. I specifically mention neovim for those linked repos, as they provide a pretty solid out-of-box experience. Though, as is it vim, out-of-box still needs some mild effort before it can help with C++ :) (or any other language)

  • LunarVim

    An IDE layer for Neovim with sane defaults. Completely free and community driven.

    https://github.com/LunarVim/LunarVim or https://github.com/kabinspace/AstroVim are pretty complete and organized enough to make modifying it much less daunting than starting from scratch.
