Neovim from scratch
Important Update When I initially created this repo I didn't anticipate the amount of breaking changes, if you'd like to use the same basic config as this one as a base I recommend my new repo: nvim-basic-ide
Another Update This repo should work fine with Neovim 0.8, also all packages are pinned so it should remain stable.
Each video will be associated with a branch so checkout the one you are interested in, you can follow along with this playlist.
Try out this config
Make sure to remove or move your current
git clone https://github.com/LunarVim/Neovim-from-scratch.git ~/.config/nvim
nvim and wait for the plugins to be installed
NOTE (You will notice treesitter pulling in a bunch of parsers the next time you open Neovim)
nvim and enter the following:
You'll probably notice you don't have support for copy/paste also that python and node haven't been setup
So let's fix that
First we'll fix copy/paste
pbcopyshould be builtin
sudo apt install xsel
On Arch Linux
sudo pacman -S xsel
Next we need to install python support (node is optional)
Neovim python support
pip install pynvim
Neovim node support
npm i -g neovim
Upgrade to latest release
Assuming you built from source,
cd into the folder where you cloned
neovim and run the following commands.
git pull make distclean && make CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release sudo make install nvim -v
