From Vimwiki to plain MarkdownAugust 24, 2021
Why I’m changing
I looked up SSG and found Hugo to be easy to use, I have yet to deploy a GitHub page with it and archive my Mkdocs repository, but once I do it, it will feel like a proper personal blog!
In terms of neovim, I will replace vimwiki with a good Markdown syntax plugin
because the built-in one is hot garbage. This means I won’t need vim-zettel as
well, and instead of using any plugins, I will just manage my page with
hugo <command> instead. But good syntax-highlighting and font-formatting is what
I’m looking for. Following links can be done with
gf and fuzzy search or
live_grep for it with telescope.nvim.
Anyway, this would be my first post created with Hugo’s built-in commands.
I found this to be the best vim
Markdown plugin. I can edit some of its highlight groups to add
gui=strikethrough for strikethrough support. While following links don’t
quite work because I have to declare cross-referenced links in a weird way,
which the plugin cannot understand. But if I hover my mouse over text.md, and
gf, I follow the link like magic.
