I saw this article posted on HN, and it's a really interesting read. I saw a video a while back that showed just how far you can go with just built in features, and it inspired me to trim my init.vim (I use ) down and remove a whole mess of plugins, but I still have some kicking around. I don't think it's a worthwhile goal to not run *any* plugins, but this shows you don't need hundreds of lines in your vimrc.

I should probably share my init.vim while I'm at it:

git.sr.ht/~kungtotte/dotfiles/

99 lines apparently :) Though if you count plugins it's obviously more.

@kungtotte I'm not sure that my comments in my vimrc is less than 99 lines. :D

I use very few plugins though, most of my config is changing various vanilla settings.

@kungtotte 99! impressive. I have 750+ lines. But 2/3s of it are just configuration options for the plugins. It needs some clean up for sure. Most are filetype specific enhancements and are lazily loaded anyways.
