Vim/Neovim plugins for writers.
In my previous article, I talked about Vim/Neovim plugins used to manage notes and to-do lists. Vim/Neovim, being a text editor, can also be a very efficient tool for writing. In this article, let’s explore plugins that writers can use to help them write books, documentation, etc.
Vim/Neovim — Managing Notes and Todo List
Using Vim/Neovim to manage your notes and to-do list.
Let’s start with some of the popular plugins.
goyo.vim + limelight.vim = Zen Mode
These 2 plugins normally go hand-in-hand. Both are popular options when people talk about distraction-free writing.
VSCode has a similar feature called Zen mode, and I actually prefer more this name. Nowadays with so many distractions, we all need Zen mode to focus on doing our tasks, whether it is coding or writing.
