This is my first blog post! I didn't know which subject to talk about and wanted to write small for a start.
I wanted to give a try of neovim on my Chromebook, but there was no binary compiled for it, and binaries from Debian are too old.
If you don't want to read the install from source documentation, follow along!
I'm going to assume that you already have the Linux VM setup.
Open the terminal and run the following command to install the build tools required.
sudo apt-get install ninja-build gettext libtool libtool-bin autoconf automake cmake g++ pkg-config unzip curl doxygen
Go to the neovim releases page to download the latest version. At the time of writing, the latest stable is v0.6.0, so download, extract it and go in the folder like following:
wget https://github.com/neovim/neovim/archive/refs/tags/v0.6.0.tar.gz tar xvf v0.6.0.tar.gz cd neovim-0.6.0/
I don't like to install packages system-wide so I compiled with a destination to
make CMAKE_EXTRA_FLAGS="-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/tools/neovim" make install
The only thing left to do is to add the
bin folder to your path. Add the following at the end of your
Happy Neovim-ing! :)
Next, I'm interested in configuring neovim with vue3!
