VimCompletesMe

A super simple, super minimal, super light-weight tab-completion plugin for Vim.

Without any configuration, the Tab key will, depending on the context, offer:

With a b:vcm_tab_complete variable, you can set the Tab key to use the following type of completions:

If any of above types of completions fails to return any results, hitting Tab again will switch back to Vim's local keyword completion. VimCompletesMe will go back to trying the special completion for the next tab completion.

You can set the b:vcm_tab_complete variable interactively, or in an autocmd. For instance, the autocmd below will use Vim Command Line completion for all vim filetypes:

autocmd FileType vim let b:vcm_tab_complete = 'vim'

Installation

If you use Vim 8 or better, simply copy and paste:

git clone git://github.com/ajh17/VimCompletesMe.git ~/.vim/pack/vendor/start/VimCompletesMe

Once the helptags have been generated (:helptags ALL), see :h VimCompletesMe for usage.
