How can I install Neovim on Ubuntu? Should I compile it from source?
The installation steps are a little bit blurry for me...

Download the master branch from Github
Install the dependencies
sudo apt-get install libtool autoconf automake cmake libncurses5-dev g++
Go to the root of the project and build
make cmake make test
That works for me.
Add the repository
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:neovim-ppa/unstable
Update and install
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install neovim
According to official Wiki:
Neovim has been added to a Personal Package Archive which allows you to install it using apt-get on Ubuntu 12.04 and later
Run the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:neovim-ppa/unstable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install neovim
Prerequisites for the Python modules:
sudo apt-get install python-dev python-pip python3-dev python3-pip
curl -LO https://github.com/neovim/neovim/releases/download/nightly/nvim.appimage chmod u+x nvim.appimage ./nvim.appimage
It just downloads standalone appimage. u can place it in path if you want to excute it from anywhere. Works on ALL DISTRIBUTIONS
I followed the; git clone **; cd neovim; make cmake make test
ended up with nvim that worked, but isn't integrated with the system. I might leave him a few weeks/months to get it into some sort of state. But it does work.
