Pretty useful

This was my vim alias: `alias vim='VIMRUNTIME=$HOME/neovim/runtime $HOME/neovim/build/bin/nvim'

Some extra steps, in my case:

In Mac:
I had to brew install cmake and automake

Then, In Ubuntu:
apt-get install automake libtool libtool-bin gettext

This is awesome! I forgot you could make an alias as well, the reason I kept it as a sh file was because I was leading up to separating your stable neovim config from nightly neovim config, so I just stuck to that lol

As for your extra steps, was that not detailed in the neovim wiki that was provided in the post? github.com/neovim/neovim/wiki/Buil...

If not you could help contribute to their wiki in case some users might also have to install the same packages.
