When I initially created this repo I didn't anticipate the amount of breaking changes introduced by the rapidly developing plugin ecosystem. All packages are pinned in
master so it will remain stable and you can always follow the videos
there if you're getting errors in other branches.
🔍 If you see an error that you can fix here's how 🎉.
General support is available on our Matrix channels.
Clone the repository into the correct location (make a backup your current
nvim directory if you want to keep it).
git clone https://github.com/LunarVim/Neovim-from-scratch.git ~/.config/nvim

nvim and enter the following:
You'll probably notice you don't have support for copy/paste also that python and node haven't been setup
So let's fix that
First we'll fix copy/paste
pbcopy should be builtin
sudo apt install xsel
On Arch Linux
sudo pacman -S xsel
Next we need to install python support (node is optional)
Neovim python support
pip install pynvim
Neovim node support
npm i -g neovim
Assuming you built from source,
cd into the folder where you cloned
neovim and run the following commands.
git pull git checkout release-0.9 make distclean && make CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release sudo make install nvim -v
