I'm new to Neovim! I've been hardly using it for a week now, and a complete switch is yet to be seen on the horizon. But I like the feeling I get when I correctly use those 3/4 shortcuts I could remember and it does something, and I want to give it a try!

That being said, setting up Neovim is quite easy.

  • Download and install the latest release from the Neovim repository.

  • Run nvim to open Neovim or nvim . to open in the current folder.

That's it! You're now a bit closer to absolute coding bliss!

But how do I do 'X' that I used to do in vscode?

Well, I'm not sure tbh! I've set up a noob-friendly config with the kickstart.nvim repository. It has a few plugins that get the basics done, i.e. fuzzy search, language servers for almost all languages, custom themes, and so on. Check out the following video for an intro ๐Ÿ‘‡

That's it! Please share your feedback, if you'd do something different in any part of the series, or your setup, and workflow. Thanks for reading, Peace โœŒ๏ธ
