Neovim 0.9.0 isolated configurations

Neovim 0.9.0 introduced the ability to have isolated configs. For example to try LazyVim:

git clone ~/.config/LazyVim
NVIM_APPNAME                                    $NVIM_APPNAME                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
  The XDG directories used by Nvim can be further configured by setting the                                                                                                                                                                                                                
  $NVIM_APPNAME environment variable. This variable controls the directory                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
  Neovim will look for (and auto-create) in the various XDG parent directories.                                                                                                                                                                                                            
  For example, setting $NVIM_APPNAME to "neovim" before running Neovim will                                                                                                                                                                                                                
  result in Neovim looking for configuration files in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/neovim                                                                                                                                                                                                              
  instead of $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/nvim.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
  Note: Similarly to the $XDG environment variables, when                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
  $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/nvim is mentioned, it should be understood as                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
  LOG FILE                                        log $NVIM_LOG_FILE E5430                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
  Besides 'debug' and 'verbose', Nvim keeps a general log file for internal                                                                                                                                                                                                                
  debugging, plugins and RPC clients.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
          :echo $NVIM_LOG_FILE                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
  By default, the file is located at stdpath("log")/log unless that path

Speaking of LazyVim, it is amazing – more on that later …

+1 for lazyvim I have switched to using it few months back and never looked back and contrary to its name it’s fast too :slightly_smiling_face:

After running LazyVim in issolated config for some months and tweaking it in, I’m moving it to my main config:

[cbrake@ceres ~]$ cd .config/
[cbrake@ceres .config]$ mv nvim nvim_2023-08-07
[cbrake@ceres .config]$ mv LazyVim nvim

Still liking LazyVim a lot!
