    The biggest is avoid a mouse whenever possible (and use home row keybindings to minimize wrist and finger movement). With video editing it's hard to do; but for programming almost my entire computer is keyboard-based—vim, tiling WM, qutebrowser, TUI applications—and I guarantee you it's the only reason I don't have arms as fucked up as Adam's are right now. If you need to use a mouse, video editing for instance, then a trackball and/or vertical mouse are the best bet.

    Our current json-roc loop is hindered by two things, the first being having to make a vim script call to vim.fn.json_encode/decode which first converts the json to a vim datastruture before converting it to lua. I have this open PR which adds lua-cjson to the vim.json namespace and uses that, removing some scheduling calls and avoiding the multi-step conversion https://github.com/neovim/neovim/pull/15759

    The last example I'll give should really drive stow symlinks home. Let's say Alice is a vim user, but instead of traditional vim she uses Neovim. Neovim doesn't use a .vimrc file in her home directory, but instead an init.vim file which is located at:

  • Feline.nvim version 0.1 released
    reddit.com/r/neovim | 2021-09-16
    feline.nvim is a minimal Neovim statusline plugin that's designed to be fast and customizable from the ground-up. It was created around 5 months ago and currently has 266 stars on GitHub. Recently, I switched the plugin to the semantic versioning scheme after seeing this issue on the Neovim repo. As a result, the first ever versioned release of feline.nvim is out. I know it's probably shameless self-promotion but I would highly recommend people to give feline.nvim a shot. It's come a long way since it was created thanks to the contributions of many people. Any constructive criticism is also welcome.
  • I want to make vim-like markdown editor with WYSIWYG live preview. Is it better done from scratch, or is it possible as a neovim plugin, integration or fork?
    reddit.com/r/neovim | 2021-09-16
    I don't think in-place live preview like Typora and Marktext can be implemented as a neovim plugin. Even https://github.com/neovim/neovim/pull/9496 hasn't been implemented yet.
  • Is there a plugin or native way to get virtual text to display parameters from a function signature inline while typing?
    reddit.com/r/neovim | 2021-09-13
    To add to that, I believe this is the relevant PR: https://github.com/neovim/neovim/pull/9496
  • Learn Wgpu tutorial updated to 0.10
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-09-12
    For me, I'm building a frontend of neovim, so it starts off with getting the infrastructure set up so I can receive UI-related events from neovim's (msgpack-rpc) API regarding what to show with the editor, etc. This would take (likely significantly) more work if you were doing the entire editor from scratch, à la VSCode or something. I'm not really familiar with how that part of building an editor would be like, since I've never done it, so can't really offer much on this subject.
