Differences between Neovim and Vim

Configuration Files

In Vim, your configuration file is ~/.vimrc, with further configuration files in ~/.vim.

In Neovim, configuration files are located in ~/.config/nvim. There is also no ~/.nvimrc file. Instead, use ~/.config/nvim/init.vim.

You can import your Vim configuration directly into Neovim using this Unix command:

ln -s ~/.vimrc ~/.config/nvim/init.vim
