Neovim packages setup
I have to say that although I like a lot of stuf around neovim, it does seem to me that the packages domain gets too complicated for its own good.
This came home to me when I started reinstalling an OpenBSD system, and realised I couldn’t remember what the packer incantations were to get the relevant packages installed.
Well, eventually I might go away from this stuff again, but for now, the relevant stuff is:
git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/wbthomason/packer.nvim \ ~/.local/share/nvim/site/pack/packer/start/packer.nvim
(note, this link helpful: https://bryankegley.me/posts/nvim-getting-started/)
Then in neovim, some combination of:
:PackerInstall :PackerSync :PackerUpdate :PackerStatus
And it shows the relevant packages have been installed…>> Home
