Update When I initially created this repo I didn't anticipate the amount of breaking changes introduced by the rapidly developing plugin ecosystem. If you'd like to use the same basic config as this one as a base I can also recommend my newer repo: nvim-basic-ide
Another Update All packages are pinned in
master so it will remain stable. Branches will be updated eventually (currently broken from branch #7 onwards. Hint: Good opportunity for pull requests!).
This repository and accompanying tutorials outline the building blocks of modern Neovim for your personalized development environment. Each video is associated with a branch so checkout the one you are interested in, you can follow along with this playlist.
General Neovim support is available on our Matrix chat.
Clone the repository into the correct location (make a backup your current
nvim directory if you want to keep it).
git clone https://github.com/LunarVim/Neovim-from-scratch.git ~/.config/nvim
nvim in your terminal and wait for the plugins to be installed. You will notice treesitter pulling in a bunch of language parsers the next time you open Neovim.
NOTE Mason is used to install and manage LSP servers, DAP servers, linters, and formatters via the
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
pbcopy should 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
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 git checkout v0.8.0 sudo make install nvim -v
