going from vscode to neovim

Mon Aug 16 2021 00:02:00 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)

i've tried a couple times in the past to make the switch from gui text editors to the cli but it never seemed to stick, plainly for a few issues:

since i've got this m1 mbp point 1 is a non issue anymore, coupled with kitty using the terminal has felt like being sat in a tty, so lovely and smooth

points 1 & 2 are solvable, i just have to go about tackling taking on the switch a bit more methodically, rather than going cold turkey i'll trial it by working in personal projects first to get my speed on par to using vscode before fully committing

why switch?

main issue is that microsoft are slowly filling the vscode ui with padding/garbage that i never touch

new rice

i've also got some new rice going & would be super comfy to have a pretty terminal instead of a big ugly electron app to work in all day erry day

things i use all the time in vscode

extensions

will report back when i've setup my nvim with a config that covers these bases
