    The basic plugins will be downloaded on the first run using Lazy, a package manager for Neovim that loads only the necessary plugins as you use them. Once it's done you should be looking at a full-fledged IDE.

    it looks more like something is wrong with your neovim install rather than your config. based on this lazy.nvim issue you may have an updated neovim binary but your neovim runtime files are not up to date. try completely reinstalling neovim.

    It is possible to manage plugins yourself, but I would recommend a plugin manager such as Lazy ( 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!

    Easily updatable. Versions are stored in manifests and can be easily updated with a single command. neovim's lazy-lock.json however is managed separately by lazy.

    > Aside: It blows my mind that there are still plugin managers being invented for Vim. That's a bad sign for an editor. This shouldn't exist in userland.

    I'm not sure what you're talking about… the fact that plugin managers continue to be developed for Vim and Neovim tells us there are new use cases today that didn't exist 20 years ago. Neovim isn't your undergraduate Vi/Vim from back in the day.

    What's amazing is the plugin managers continue to improve, especially for Neovim.

    Lazy.vim [1] is amazingly good.

    Refactoring eliminated 30% of Vim's legacy code and the choice of Lua for the scripting language has unleashed a stunning amount of creativity in Neovim/Vim community.
