LazyVim review

Based on recommendations from @khem and the nvim-lua/kickstart.vim README, I tried LazyVim. It is now easy to run in parallel with your existing Neovim configuration using the NVIM_APPNAME. The result is amazing.


One of my favorite features is to be able to turn off auto-formatting on the fly with <leader>uf. This is very useful when working in OSS projects where you want to make a small change and not re-format the entire file with your preferences.

Another tip … if you want to repeat the previous search, you can do <leader>sR , which essentially does :Telescope resume. Very useful. (thanks to this discussion).

nvim is good, but not perfect:

Just froze my machine for 10m or so until the OOM killer decided that was enough …

Overall, it is working well and has a nice balance between speed and functionality.
