It has something to do with my configuration, but I can't seem to display Alpha when starting nvim. There isn't even :Alpha when I start nvim, I have to type :lua require'alpha'.setup(require'alpha.themes.startify'.config), to be able to launch it.

This leads me to believe that I messed up somewhere in my config. If you could please take a look to help me, here is my config.

I only have this in my packer.lua for alpha in my config.

--Plug for greet screen
use {
    requires = { 'nvim-tree/nvim-web-devicons' },
    config = function ()

Writing require'alpha'.setup(require'alpha.themes.startify'.config) in my init.lua fixed the problem.
