I upgraded to neovim, and I want to remove vim-plug. It randomly changes my style settings (literally turns on syntax on for no reason other than the author's preference), and it's not as nice as newer neovim plugin managers like Packer which are written in lua. I don't see what's pulling it in. How can I remove vim-plug.

  • With vim, vim-plug is installed in

  • With neovim vim-plug is installed in


Simply removing those file will stop it from loading. You'll furhter want to delete the place where the plugins are stored, ~/.config/nvim/plugged/.

You can then proceed with installing Packer
