Neovim Plugin Community updates {#plugins}

Neovim is full of active plugins. This section is about the community and what is going on.

New plugins {#new-plugins}


mini.nvim plugin got its module number 30 - mini.hipatterns. It can be used to highlight patterns in text (like TODO, hex color strings, etc.) with configurable patterns and highlight groups (both can be string or callable). Highlighting is updated asynchronously with configurable debounce delay.

Neovim motions on speed!

It’s been a long time the project hasn’t really moved. There are still a couple of bugs crawling around and I, @phaazon, didn’t have the time to fix them. Especially now that I’m not using Neovim that anymore, I don’t really have a big incentive in doing so.

So this is a deprecation notice. Of course, since the project is licensed with BSD-3-Clause, feel free to fork it if you liked it. Initially, I thought about giving commit rights to motivated people but I’m not sure it’s a good idea anymore.

Hop was one — if not the first? — motion plugin brought to Neovim in Lua, after I realized we had issues with the original EasyMotion from Vim and the Neovim virtual text / buffer content. Hop fixed those issues, and a wide variety of other motion plugins started to appear, with different and interesting approaches. Thanks for having used it!

If you happen to fork and get traction, feel free to reach out to me; I’ll mention the « fork to follow. »
