My Flow and Productivity has Improved with the Simplicity of Neovim

I don’t think it’s a surprise if you’ve been following along with me lately that I’ve pivoted my daily programming setup to Neovim. What might surprise you is that I started my career working on HP-UX and remoting into servers because the compilers and toolchains only existed on those servers I was building for. When working through a terminal, you’ve got to leverage a terminal editor or do something with x11 and that was just super clunky. Enter my first experience with Vi. I loved the motions, the simplicity, and the ubiquity of it. But those are things that have been talked about in great detail. What I want to explore in this article is my experience in moving to Neovim.
