    Nvim Treesitter configurations and abstraction layer

    I'm using treesitter and have been following this issue but it still isn't clear to me if the function is there or not and how to enable it. I'm also using coc.nvim and that has CocActionAsync('highlight') but that takes place only an hour after I started holding my cursor there and the highlight is barely visible.
