This plugin provides a completion source for the popular Emacs interactive auto-completion framework auto-complete.
Where nrepl provides it, pop-up documentation for completed symbols will be displayed.
You'll need both
nrepl to be enabled and
working, so please consult the corresponding documentation is you have
any trouble with this.
ac-nrepl. If you choose not to use the convenient
package in Melpa and Marmalade, you'll need to
add the directory containing
ac-nrepl.el to your
ac-nrepl provides an
nrepl-specific completion source,
auto-complete needs to be told to use them when
active. To do this, put the following code in your emacs init file to
(require 'ac-nrepl) (add-hook 'nrepl-mode-hook 'ac-nrepl-setup) (add-hook 'nrepl-interaction-mode-hook 'ac-nrepl-setup) (eval-after-load "auto-complete" '(add-to-list 'ac-modes 'nrepl-mode))
If you want to trigger
auto-complete using TAB in nrepl buffers, you may
want to put
auto-complete into your
(defun set-auto-complete-as-completion-at-point-function () (setq completion-at-point-functions '(auto-complete))) (add-hook 'auto-complete-mode-hook 'set-auto-complete-as-completion-at-point-function) (add-hook 'nrepl-mode-hook 'set-auto-complete-as-completion-at-point-function) (add-hook 'nrepl-interaction-mode-hook 'set-auto-complete-as-completion-at-point-function)
You might consider using
ac-nrepl's popup documentation in place of
(define-key nrepl-interaction-mode-map (kbd "C-c C-d") 'ac-nrepl-popup-doc)
ac-nrepl should now automatically be enabled when you visit a buffer
nrepl-mode is active and
auto-complete is enabled. (The
symbols "nrepl and "AC" should appear in the modeline.)
Simply trigger auto-completion, and completion candidates supplied by
nrepl should be displayed, with the symbol
n on the right hand side
of the completion pop-up. After a short delay, popup documentation
for the completed symbol should also be displayed.
