4. Install text editor (Neovim)

Downloading and installing Neovim on your PC, excluding the configuration part, which greatly enhances its usability.
Check the latest stable neovim release (optional)

curl -sSL kurotych.com/debisway/scripts/get_latest_neovim_stable_version.sh | sh
Script source code
curl -s https://api.github.com/repos/neovim/neovim/releases/latest | grep "tag_name" | awk '{print $2}' | tr -d '",'

  1. Make a temporary directory. mkdir temp && cd temp
  2. Download Neovim (replace v0.10.0 with the desired version): curl -LO https://github.com/neovim/neovim/releases/download/v0.10.0/nvim-linux64.tar.gz
  3. Unpack the archive and navigate to the extracted directory:
tar -xzf nvim-linux64.tar.gz
cd nvim-linux64
  1. Move the extracted files to /usr/local: sudo cp -r ./* /usr/local/
    The nvim command must be available on this step. BTW command to exit neovim: :q! ;)
  2. Create a symbolic link to run Neovim using the command v: sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/nvim /usr/local/bin/v
  3. Remove temporaty dir cd ../.. && rm -rf temp
