Neovim Plugins for a Better Coding Experience — Part 5

It has been a while since we talked about new Neovim plugins. In this article, let’s continue to explore Neovim plugins that can improve our coding experience. We will also check out the new winbar option (:h winbar) and see how to use it with other plugins.

This article can be read independently from the previous articles.

Marks using marks.nvim

marks.nvim provides a better user experience for interacting with and manipulating Vim marks.

It features

  • view marks in the sign column
  • quickly add, delete, and toggle marks
  • cycle between marks
  • preview marks in floating windows
  • extract marks to quickfix/location list
  • set bookmarks with sign/virtual text annotations for quick navigation across buffers

Let’s install it using packer.nvim,

use {
"chentoast/marks.nvim",
event = "BufReadPre",
config = function()
require("marks").setup {}
end,
}
marks.nvim

Alternative plugins
