I just switched to Nvim from Vim, and came to this community. So, hello all!

I'm doing very primitive config for Nvim and I'm trying to manage my plug-ins using git submodules.

First of all, I'm working on incorporating base16-bright color scheme, and activating it. I did the following:

~/.config/nvim $ git init
~/.config/nvim $ git submodule add https://github.com/RRethy/nvim-base16.git

and then I added the following line to init.vim

colorscheme base16-bright

But that doesn't work.

Any help/advice would be appreciated.

plugins can be anything else, as long as the path matches pack/*/start.
