LazyVim is one of the most popular Neovim “distributions” along with AstroNvim, LunarVim, and NvChad. These aren’t really distributions, they do not include Neovim, but that is what they are called. They are more accurately described as “Neovim configuration frameworks”. In most cases they provide some pre-configuration of plugins as well as an easy way to extend the base configuration.
A Neovim configuration framework can be of considerable assistance in managing the exploding Neovim plugin ecosystem, quickly and easily incorporating advanced features, and maintaining an up-to-date Neovim configuration.
Features that distinguish LazyVim include:
- Very well maintained by the author of
- Nice architecture, it’s a plugin with which you can
- Good documentation
