package main

func main() {
	var _ *int = new()

Completing inside new() should offer int first, but it instead offers chan, func, map, and then int.

Probably addKeywordCompletions shouldn't add keyword type name candidates if there is already an expected type (int is the expected type in the above example).

Change mentions this issue: internal/lsp/source: improve unnamed type completion

gopherbot pushed a commit to golang/tools that referenced this issue Aug 12, 2020
Tweak a few things so that unnamed, non-basic types are offered as
completions in certain cases:

    var _ []int = make(<>) // now properly suggests "[]int"

I also fixed type related keywords to not be offered if there is an
expected type:

    var _ *int = new(<>) // don't offer "func", etc.

There are still some cases that don't work properly. For example:

    var _ [][]int = make([]<>) // doesn't offer "[]int"

This would be harder to fix given the way things currently work.

Fixes golang/go#40275, golang/go#40274.
