  • nvim-lspconfig

    Quickstart configs for Nvim LSP

    Out of the box neovim offers the tools to start and query a language server but it doesn't have any opinion on how we should use them. Enter nvim-lspconfig, with it neovim can scan the "root directory" of a project and choose which language server you configured should be initialiazed.

  • nvim-cmp

    A completion plugin for neovim coded in Lua.

    And then we have nvim-cmp, the autocompletion plugin. I think the completions provided by neovim are good enough but the thing is it requires a fair amount of manual intervention. Modern code editors have all this automated in a way that feels more intuitive, this is what nvim-cmp offers. We can have that smart autocompletion in neovim.
