Thanks for this article. I'm using YouCompleteMe without problems for years, but good to know in which direction the Vim community is moving :-)

Btw. you can also execute browser-sync straight direct in your Vim with the help of the :terminal command:

:terminal ++close browser-sync start --server --files .

(assuming that your current working directory is where your index.html lives)

You could also create a custom command for this in your .vimrc:

command Serve terminal ++close browser-sync start --server --files .

Now you have to type just :Serve and you don't have to leave Vim.
