This article assumes you are using Neovim (version 0.8.0 or higher) and packer.nvim to manage your plugins. Adding the following loads the LuaSnip plugin, creates a snippet for “func”, and maps “Ctrl + p” to expand the snippet and jump through the fields.
After creating a pushing a new branch to GitHub (or any remote), when I do “git pull” I often get an error that says “There is no tracking information for the current branch”. The Git config value “autoSetupRemote”, introduced in Git version 2.38, lets us avoid this entirely error.
I’m currently rewriting my Neovim configuration using lua rather than using vimscript. I’m using the coc.nvim plugin and want to map return (

When I’m working with Git, there are times I want to check if I can do a fast-forward merge but I do NOT want to actually perform the merge.
