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?

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