    Neovim on OS X

    Posted at — Dec 20, 2020

    Recently I have switched from vim to neovim, just because it is faster, supports asynchronous plugins, and stores config in .config so I can have all my configs in the same place.

    This is a base config for neovim on OS X using vim-plug plugin manager.

    neovim latest installation

    brew install cmake
    brew install luarocks
    brew install --HEAD luajit 
    brew install --HEAD neovim

    vim-plug installation

    curl -fLo ~/.config/nvim/autoload/plug.vim --create-dirs \                                           

    vim-plug usage

    Update .config/nvim/init.vim

    call plug#begin('~/.config/nvim/plugged')
    "Define your plugins here
    Plug 'tpope/vim-surround'
    call plug#end()

    Then just call the command:


    Handling python path error

    In case of python path error: Python cannot be opened because of a problem

    Please add the following to the beginning of the file: .config/nvim/init.vim

    let g:python3_host_prog='/usr/bin/python'
    let g:python_host_prog='/usr/bin/python2'
