Last time I blogged about my basic nvim settings, this time I would like to share all the plugins I use as a heads-up-display when editing text.
vim-airline will draw a statusline at the bottom of each window indicating information relevant to file itself, like detected type, encoding, path and vim stuff like modes, pressed keys or columns number.
vim-airline is the foundation for literally all the plugins I currently use that are going to be listed below.
vim-devicons adds file type icons to vim, usually displayed on the statusline and in combination with other plugins like
controlp. A really important thing about this plugin is the that you must use a patched nerd font compatible one. My current favorite is Fura Code, I also enable ligatures on iterm2 when selecting this font.
vim-gitgutter shows a git diff in the gutter to indicate added, changes and removed lines.
The configuration I use is:
papercolor-theme defines color schemes. The configuration I use is:
set termguicolors set background=dark colorscheme PaperColor
In practice all of this combined looks like this!
Productivity plugins are next!
