    So if you are used to VSCode you have probably installed extensions before. Well a plugin manager such as plug lets us do just that! I personally use the one mentioned but there are tons of different ones so just pick one you prefer or go with the one I use.

  • Suggestions to keep lua based plugins separate for vim compatibility | 2021-04-25
    I work on multiple systems regularly and one issue I normally face is that I don't have a way to install/build neovim in a few of the systems, and hence will have to use regular vim in those systems, which is fine. To keep my configs compatible, I've written all my config in ~/.vimrc and then I source it in init.vim for neovim. Also I use vim-plug for installing and managing plugins.
  • Nvim plug in install and setup that worked for you on Solus?
    Firstly, do yourself a favour and source control your dotfiles. Mine are here. Feel free to grab my nvim config that uses vim-plug for the plugins. Note that it uses key-bindings that make sense for me and you should try and start your own with minimal config and add as you go.

  • neovim lua config can't install plugins when there's an error. | 2021-04-10
    When I was using vim-plug as my plugin manager I was able to run nvim --headless +PlugInstall +qall in a script I had to install my configs in a new machine. It didn't matter if my config was calling plugins or a colorscheme that didn't exist, that wasn't a problem. It just installed everything without issues.

  • neovim ... the neovim way | 2021-04-04
    As for plugin manager, I use and recommend good old-fashioned vim-plug, it works in both Neovim and Vim, it is asynchronous and it just works.

    Without going into to much detail the first play to start with a plugin is to install a plugin manager, I suggest vim_plug (since it's the one I use) which has a nice little power shell one-liner you can run to get it setup. From there you can easily add more plugins with it's syntax

    Either :h 05.6 or any package managers readme. I like vimplug mainly because I don't know the others.

    This give me sym linking & versioning of stow. But also will automatically deal with things like complete setup and teardown to managed non-versioned dependencies (e.g. vim-plug or doom), make it idempotent, and has a githook that runs automatically on a successful merge.
