    vim9script should still be a fair bit slower in certain benchmarks compared to luajit and a fair bit faster in others (, but better performance is about all it offers.

  • lsp-zero.nvim

    A starting point to setup some lsp related features in neovim.

    It's still in a young state, TBH, but it has gotten better in recent versions, and the plugin ecosystem has a lot more to offer now than it did when 0.5 and 0.6 were released (for example, this plugin would have made LSP setup way easier to get into in the beginning).
