(n)vi(m): productivity plugins

Let's take a look at my favorite productivity plugins. I blogged about my basic nvim settings, this time I would like to share all the plugins I use as a heads-up-display when editing text.

1) ctrlpvim/ctrlp.vim

ctrlp.vim is a full path fuzzy file finder. It's amazing! The configuration I use is the following:

set runtimepath^=~/.vim/bundle/ctrlp.vim
let g:ctrlp_user_command = ['.git', 'cd %s && git ls-files -co --exclude-standard']
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

2) tpope/vim-commentary

vim-commentary allows you comment/comment out blocks of text, it's really useful.

3) tpope/vim-surround

vim-surround allows you to easily manipulate "surroundings", to do whatever you want with those delimiters. It's really better explained in the README.

4) SirVer/UltiSnips

UltiSnips allows defining custom snippets, I use this a lot for generating skeletons of Go tests, time saver for sure.

The more you know
