Neovim is a fork of Vim focused on modern code and features, rather than
running in legacy environments.
msgpack API enables structured communication to/from any programming language.
Remote plugins run as co-processes that communicate with Neovim safely and
GUIs (or TUIs) can easily embed Neovim or communicate via TCP sockets using
the discoverable msgpack API.
