The older I get the more time I spend in the terminal. I really appreciate services that accommodate accessing information from the terminal.
For example, I am a huge fan of https://cht.sh to quickly access docs for programming languages and https://wttr.in to get a nice display of the weather.
I thought it would be fun to be able to quickly search for neovim plugins within the terminal. Since I already have a curated list of neovim plugins via https://neovimcraft.com, I thought it would be a fun project to work on for the day.
So I'm happy to announce https://nvim.sh - a website that makes it easy to find neovim plugins.

Searching for a plugin uses a fuzzy matching algorithm (Levenshtein distance) to find the best matches based on the name and description.
Since all of the plugins are tagged, you can also search for plugins matching
