gentags.nvim

To be honest, it seems that tags have become useless in Neovim today, LSP and treesitter replaced tags and make (Neo)vim a modern editor.

While there exists gap when LSP server or treesitter implementations are insufficient, which brings tags back to us as a supplement to fill the gap.
