Neovim Config for Git

Creating a minimal config specifically for git commits has made running
git commit much more pleasant. It starts up Much faster, and has all
of the parts of my config that I use while making a git commit. The one thing that I often use is autocomplete, for things coming from elsewhere in the tmux session. For this cmpe-tmux specifically is super helpful.

The other thing that is engrained into my muscle memory is jj for escape. For that I went agead and added my settings and keymap with no noticable performance hit.

Here is the config that has taken

~/.config/nvim/init-git.vim

source ~/.config/nvim/settings.vim source ~/.config/nvim/keymap.vim source ~/.config/nvim/git-plugins.vim lua require'waylonwalker.cmp'
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

~/.config/nvim/git-plugins.vim

call plug#begin('~/.local/share/nvim/plugged')

" cmp
Plug 'hrsh7th/nvim-cmp' Plug 'hrsh7th/cmp-nvim-lsp' Plug 'hrsh7th/cmp-buffer' Plug 'hrsh7th/cmp-path' Plug 'hrsh7th/cmp-calc' Plug 'andersevenrud/compe-tmux', { 'branch': 'cmp' }


call plug#end()
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

~/.gitconfig

[core]
    editor = nvim -u ~/.config/nvim/init-git.vim
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
