Object Completion

This Vim extension provides insert-mode commands for completing certain types of objects.

It can complete the following pairs, based on previous occurences in the same buffer: (), {}, '', "".

It seems to work reasonably well, but I would consider it an experiment at this point.

The commands are:

  • Ctrl+X 0 for completing ()
  • Ctrl+X [ for completing {}
  • Ctrl+X ' for completing '' or ""

Again, it only completes from the current buffer. I would love to have it pull from all open buffers the way Ctrl-X Ctrl-L and Ctrl-N do, but I think that would be a performance concern. The parsing is currently done using Vim regexps.

The other major limitation is that it currently gets confused by nested () and {}, and strings containing escaped quotes. These do not prevent the completion from working. Nested pairs will result in truncated completions (only for the pair that was nested, it doesn't affect other completion options). Escaped quotes sometime result in the text in between two strings being interpreted as a string, which can sometimes cause performance problems.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
