Integrating Esbonio with Neovim Using Nix
So far I’ve been learning how to use Nix by trying to package and define development shells for esbonio (see here if you are interested). While useful, the end result is not too dissimilar to what you can get with standard Python tooling. Indeed, the main reason I started looking into Nix was the promise of it being able to manage more than just Python libraries.
esbonio is a language server, it would be useful for Nix to create standardised environments where the language server is pre-configured for a given editor - great for debugging and demos!
In this blog post I try to define an environment in which Neovim is installed and configured to use the
esbonio language server for reStructuredText files.
