Neovimcraft status update, August 2021

August 31, 2021 on Eric Bower's blog

Hey all!

I just wanted to write a quick update about neovimcraft.

I started this project a little over a month ago because I saw a huge missed opportunity to catalog and make finding neovim plugins simple. I also wanted a repository of guides for how to build neovim plugins using lua.

I’m excited to announce that we have broke 10k unique requests in a month! This is by far the most successful project I have launched and I’m excited to continue working on it.

neovimcraft - 10k unique requests in a month

As of today, we have 328 neovim resources (plugins, custom UI solutions, and preconfigured solutions) as well as a dozen articles related to creating neovim plugins in lua.

What’s next for neovimcraft? In the near term, I want to continue to improve the experience for the guides section. Right now it’s just a collection of resources I’ve found online. I’d love to structure the content on that page more and even create our own content to build a narrative around writing neovim plugins. I’d also like to reach out to the community to help build better content for neovimcraft.

I also want to mention that neovimcraft is open-source and the site can be found on github. Also, if people are interested in using the list of plugins for their own projects, they can download my resources.json file which is the source of truth for the directory.

Finally, I just wanted to thank the neovim community for their support. I’ve received a bunch of great feedback on how to improve the user experience.

On that note, do you have any thoughts on how to improve the project? Feel free to write a post on the github issues.
