Language Providersλ︎

Neovim delegates some features to language providers.

:checkhealth command in Neovim shows if the binaries and tools required by each provider are available in the operating system.

Resolve the issue with providers that generate a warning in the checkhealth report, following the ADVICE steps provided.

Disable Language Providersλ︎

If a language is not used with Neovim, then its provider can be disabled. Details on how to disable a provider are included at the end of the ADVICE in the report section for that provider.
