I have recently shifted from vim to neovim in hopes finding some of the auto completions more manageable. I tried to have completion for vim 8.1 with using a LSP server protocol but it was behaving very much wonky. Some other motivation to try out neovim is to use Vim-Plug as well as deoplete completion manager.

Noticeable Differences so far..

  1. Linting errors on the same line with lesser shades.

  2. Neomake makes life much easier than what I would see worp/Ale

  3. I have had many problems with completion engines like YCM but with deoplete I did not find any difference in performance.

  4. I haven’t made my dotfiles for nvim public but I would be doing that in the near future.
