Lua Repo_Size Pull_Requests Issues

nii-nvim is a very minimal neovim configuration focused on creating a functional editor with a minimal amount code. nii-nvim also has the user in mind by being very extensible and documented.

NOTE: nii-nvim is currently under development, meaning that many things may not work as intended, or may not be implemented at all.

Why nii-nvim?

There are many neovim configurations that exist (i.e. NvChad, Lunar Vim, etc.), however, amny of these configurations suffer from a host of problems.

  • Some configurations (like NvChad), have very abstracted and complex codebases.
  • Others rely on having as much overall functionality as possible (like LunarVim).

While none of this is bad, there are some problems that can arise from these choices:

  • Complex codebases lead to less freedom for end-user extensiblity and configuration, as there is more reliance on teh maintainer of said code.
  • Users may not use half of what is made avalible to them simply because they don't need all of that functionality, so all of it may not be necissary

nii-nvim provides a solution to these problems by providing only the bare minimum of necissary code in order to make a functioning configuration. The end goal of nii-nvim is to be use as a base config for users to extend and add upon, leading to a more unique editing experience.

Also the name is cute. (・3・)

  • Heavy focus on both in-source documentation and external documentation.
  • Sane Keybinds for extra added functionality
  • Small codebase for easy extensibility
  • A handful of plugins to build off neovim's strengths
  • Swag (and Minimalisim!!)
