Interesting, g:rubycomplete_rails works in my Neovim, but not my Vim. #349

Hello support,

This is more a request for information than a "bug-report". Please close immediately.


  • Mac Sierra with Homebrew installed Neovim (0.2) and Vim (8.0, 1-562)
  • Ruby 2.4.1 via ruby-install and chruby

Vim options:

    let g:rubycomplete_buffer_loading       = 1
    let g:rubycomplete_classes_in_global    = 1
    let g:rubycomplete_rails                = 1

Both Vim and Neovim are correctly omni-completing simple Ruby expressions, in my Rails app, such as:

"hello".downc<Ctrl-x Ctrl-o>

However, only Neovim is completing Rails code, for example I have an Album model with a starts_with_letter scope, hence when I do this:

Album.starts_w<Ctrl-x Ctrl-o>
  • Neovim is expanding to the full function starts_with_letter
  • Vim however is saying Pattern not found

I am curious, why is one editor completing and not the other? Am I supposed to set some other option? Am I doing something wrong to break Rails completion in normal Vim?

If Vim was not completing Ruby code that would make more sense since that would indicate a Ruby mismatch between the Ruby Vim was built against vs the Ruby being used; but that theory is shot down since Ruby code is being completed.

Side note, seeing my Rails code completing in Neovim is damn impressive.

Many thanks.
