git submodule update --init


  • g:deoplete#sources#jedi#statement_length: Sets the maximum length of completion description text. If this is exceeded, a simple description is used instead. Default: 50
  • g:deoplete#sources#jedi#enable_typeinfo: Enables type information of completions. If you disable it, you will get the faster results. Default: 1
  • g:deoplete#sources#jedi#enable_short_types: Enables short completion types. Default: 0
  • g:deoplete#sources#jedi#short_types_map: Short types mapping dictionary. Default: { 'import': 'imprt', 'function': 'def', 'globalstmt': 'var', 'instance': 'var', 'statement': 'var', 'keyword': 'keywd', 'module': 'mod', 'param': 'arg', 'property': 'prop', 'bytes': 'byte', 'complex': 'cmplx', 'object': 'obj', 'mappingproxy': 'dict', 'member_descriptor': 'cattr', 'getset_descriptor': 'cprop', 'method_descriptor': 'cdef', }

  • g:deoplete#sources#jedi#python_path: Set the Python interpreter path to use for the completion server. It defaults to "python", i.e. the first available python in $PATH. Note: This is different from Neovim's Python (:python) in general.
  • g:deoplete#sources#jedi#extra_path: A list of extra paths to add to sys.path when performing completions.
  • g:deoplete#sources#jedi#ignore_errors: Ignore jedi errors for completions. Default: 1
  • g:deoplete#sources#jedi#ignore_private_members: Ignore private members from completions. Default: 0

Virtual Environments

If you are using virtualenv, it is recommended that you create environments specifically for Neovim. This way, you will not need to install the neovim package in each virtualenv. Once you have created them, add the following to your vimrc file:

let g:python_host_prog = '/full/path/to/neovim2/bin/python'
let g:python3_host_prog = '/full/path/to/neovim3/bin/python'

Deoplete only requires Python 3. See :help provider-python for more information.
