NvChad, neovim, and installation


April 27, 2024

I spent an hour fighting with the install of NvChad and neovim.

I did a clean install twice, and it still wouldn’t find and load the init.lua file.

I finally found the issue. I had previously set the XDG_CONFIG_HOME variable in my .zshrc file. Removing that line fixed the issue as it was interfering with the default location that NvChad/neovim was looking for the init.lua file.

More fun with colors

I was using the Terminal app on my Mac, and the colors were not readable. Checking the docs, I found that Terminal.app doesn’t support true colors. I switched to iTerm2 for nvim.
