    best customiseable editor. you can make an ide out of it or a bare bones text editor. it's what emacs would need to be truly great.

    can some vim nerd explain the completion/narrowing/selection landscape to me? is telescope the only thing or are there other equivalents to helm/ivy/vemco stack in emacs.

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Telescope is ui afaik.

      There is some builtin competition but I think nvim-cmp is the standard now. It lets you plugin different sources to pull completions from (eg copilot, buffer terms, lsp, etc)

      I forgot how it hooks up to the ui bit, think it just populates the native vim completion ui, which is replaceable too.

        so company-mode/corfu -> nvim-cmp
        and vertico -> telelscope, is that right?
        >native vim completion ui
        good to hear they have that

        I wrote a long response but IQfy lost it. So all you get is use nvim-cmp

        thats too bad

      Emacs doesn't have proper relative line numbers or at least I haven't found them if it does.

        what does that mean, it works fine with the newer displaylinenumers-mode

          display-line-numbers 'relative doesn't work if anything is folded. display-line-numbers 'visual adds line numbers to wrapped lines. Both frick with j/k and are not how line numbering works in Vim.

        Try spacemacs and change the dotspacemacs-line-numbers entry from nil to t for proper line numbers.

            Lisp isn't shit for the kind of things you write Emacs packages for. In fact it's probably as good as it gets.

            Loading these packages alone takes forever that emacs had to come up with this server cope that's always running in the background, and Doom emacs have all sorts of weird lazy loading and optimizations. Elisp doesn't even have scopes, everything is global. Emacs is the spiritual predecessor of PissCode.

            >takes forever
            A multithreading optimization would be helpful but even this supposed slowness is veritably faster than loading any other modern text editor sans maybe Vim. PissCopium's success speaks wonders for Emacs and its features tbh.
            >but I just want to like write text tho
            Yeah but that's boriiiing. Global scopes are not a problem if you're not moronic btw literally why parentheses exist lol just ~~*do it*~~ bro

            NeoVim literally fixes this made-up dichotomy. It's both fast and extensible.

            Honestly, making a consistent emacs experience is a lot less awful than doing the same in neovim using Lua. Every time I try moving from vimrc, I just wonder wtf I'm getting for it. It's still a shitty ass scripting language.

            Lua is better than vimscript and all new plugins support Lua. I'm not sure if you can use NeoVim's LSP and Treesitter without Lua.

    Vim is a text editor for Unix that comes with Linux, BSD, and macOS. It is known to be fast and powerful, partly because it is a small program that can run in a terminal (although it has a graphical interface). It is mainly because it can be managed entirely without menus or a mouse with a keyboard.

    So basically Neovim is if you're trying to replace a fancy IDE.
    Vim is not recommended for this, and is still preferred for basic remote work on servers.
    Or do people use Neovim for everything now??
