A git blame plugin for Neovim written in Lua
There were several Vim plugins providing this functionality, however most of them were written in VimScript and didn't work well for me. coc-git also had option for showing blame info, it worked really well for me, I like it. However, recently I decided to switch to Neovim's builtin LSP instead of using CoC and having something running on Node.js just for git blame was not the best thing.
Enables git-blame.nvim on neovim startup.
