Neovim — init.lua

Neovim + Lua = init.lua

Overview

Integration of Lua as a first-class language in the latest release of Neovim provides a good alternative to developers to use a more proper programming language to configure Neovim and develop plugins. Vimscript can get a bit messy to manage when the code base grows. Lua is also relatively easy to learn compared to Emacs Lisp which is used to configure Emacs.
