Local .vimrc for neovim settings and differences


For directory-specific vim settings, you can use .vimrc but when using neovim, you’ll need to use .nvimrc instead.

To get it all working, add the following to your init.nvim file:

set exrc
set secure

Using set secure will disable/disallow using autocmd settings

In the directory with vim settings, add an .nvimrc file.

I was struggling with this b/c I was using .vimrc for neovim which didn’t work for me.
