NukeVim -- nucleardog's nvim config

This is my neovim config.

It's mine. It's built to serve my purpose and make my day-to-day life as a developer better. You may find something of value here.


Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add,
but when there is nothing left to take away.

Many other vim distributions are heavy. I don't mean that they start too slow, run slowly, or anything performance-wise... cognitively heavy. They have too many features and too many changes to the core vim experience. Their configs are large and opaque. It often feels like starting back at square one and trying to learn vim and vimscript all over again.

NukeVim's goal is to extend vim rather than replace it. Functionality is generally added in a way that just stays out of your way. The core vim experience is largely unchanged and should feel familiar to anyone who has lived in vim for years and developed all the muscle memory that goes along with that experience.

Functionality is not added lightly, and everything that's present is present because it helps streamline my experience and improve my flow.


It's... vim. It looks like vim and it works like vim.

As you delve deeper, you'll find that NukeVim contains tools to help you understand and navigate your code, manage your project, and simplify working with common development tools.

This is all managed by a structured and coherent configuration and a plugin meta-manager that automatically adapts to the available tooling on your system as well as makes manual adjustments a breeze and allows changes without the whole thing exploding.

More Info

The primary documentation (including installation instructions) is maintained in a vim help file that can be viewed directly or opened at any time in nukevim with :h nukevim.


  • Go through and declare all the variables local because I misunderstood lua variable scoping rules.
  • Replace tagbar/ctags with cocoutline? Or vista (uses LSP instead of ctags)
  • Maybe add CtrlPFunky for navigating within files?
  • CocAction('format') -- what else?
  • Review new Coc extensions
