New Neovim plugins to improve development workflow and productivity.

Neovim Plugins

Overview

In previous articles, I talked about Vim/Neovim plugins to help you code faster, and some of the niche Neovim plugins. In this article let’s go through new Neovim plugins that can improve your development workflow and productivity.

glow.nvim

As a developer, we normally need to write documentation in Markdown.

glow.nvim uses glow to directly render Markdown in Neovim buffer. Compared to other plugins which leverage the browser, this plugin is definitely more convenient.

Alternative plugins

hop.nvim

In the previous article, I talked about jumping anywhere in the window using 1–2 keystrokes using EasyMotion.

Hop is an EasyMotion-like plugin allowing you to jump anywhere in the window with as few keystrokes as possible.

Alternative Plugins

nvim-lspinstall

nvim-lspinstall is a very lightweight companion plugin for nvim-lspconfig. It adds the missing :LspInstall <language> command to conveniently install language servers.
