A neovim configuration that looks good and is fast (startuptime < 0.5s).

Tested on a pretty low end laptop
On Power                              : 0.015s - 0.025s
On Battery                            : 0.025s - 0.045s
On Power (with firefox and discord)   : 0.020s - 0.035s
On Battery (with firefox and discord) : 0.025s - 0.045s

Has something like 29 plugins and but is still fast becuase of holy lazy loading.

Plugins And Features


  • Neovim >= v0.8
  • ripgrep (optional)
  • nodejs and npm
  • a brain (mandatory)
  • some xp with lua and neovim
  • ueberzug for image previews


It's really easy , just a simple one liner with git!

~ $ git clone --depth 1 ~/.config/nvim
~ $ nvim +PackerSync

Adding mason to path

Add this to your shell config

# this is for zsh
export PATH=$PATH:~/.local/share/nvim/mason/bin
~ $ source ~/.zshrc

Custom Colorschemes

I know it sucks but you will have to do it manually

  • Make a new color scheme /lua/themes/colorschemes/scheme.lua (copy the default colorscheme and change the colors)
  • Make a colors file for it /colors/scheme.lua
-- /colors/scheme.lua
  theme = "scheme",
  transparent_background = false
  • Set the color scheme in init.lua
  • Reload Neovim

Statusline Styles

Warning: This section contains the worst ever code written There are three prebuilt styles

  • To change the style edit /lua/core/options.lua
  • Set the style in DEFAULT_STATUS_STYLE variable in line 65
local DEFAULT_STATUS_STYLE = 'minimal' -- minimal | fancy | monochrome
  • Reload Neovim

Some Points To be Noted

  • This is meant to be a simple base config which can be extended and customised very easily.
  • THIS IS NOT A "DISTRO", just my personal dotfiles that i wanted to share with you guys!
  • This is not for beginners, you need to have some experience wihth lua and neovim.







  • Will you switch to lazy.nvim? No I wont


  • [x] better screenshots
  • [x] more, MORE fast (15 ms is fine ig)
  • [x] custom statusline (i am proud)
  • [x] learn markdown bcoz i suck at it
  • [x] fix autoformatting on save

Special Thanks

This config wouldn't have been possible without these chads!
