GEdit Autocomplete

This plugin provides a popup with the possible completions available in the opened documents. This version is the very same of Alin Avasilcutei 0.9.6 and the only difference is that instead of using Tab to complete, it's now using Enter. This change is useful to make the plugin play nice with the snippets plugin - a super useful built-in plugin that no one could live without.


  1. Run the install script
  2. Open gedit and click Edit -> Preferences -> Plugins
  3. Check the Autocomplete-0.9.7 and hit Close
  4. That's it! Now you can start coding and watch the popup working. Hit Return to accept the completion.

There are a lot of completions plugins in the Gnome GEdit Plugins page, and I don't know what one was the first but this one is a product by:


Added an plugin icon.Renamed the version to 0.9.7

bugfix: Completion was active only on the last opened window. Previous opened windows lost the completion feature.

I did a brief read in the plugin, changed tabs into four spaces, fixed some typos and made the required changes to make Return run as the trigger instead of Tab.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
