This add-on defines three ac-sources for the auto-complete package:
ac-source-latex-commands- input latex commands
ac-source-math-latex- input math latex tags (by default, active only in math environments)
ac-source-math-unicode- input of unicode symbols (by default, active everywhere except math environments)
Start math completion by typing the prefix "" key. Select the completion type RET (
ac-complete). Depending on the context the unicode symbol or latex \tag will be inserted.
You must have auto-complete package installed.
This is an example of how to activate the 'ac-math' in latex-mode:
(require 'ac-math) ; This is not needed when you install from MELPA (add-to-list 'ac-modes 'latex-mode) ; make auto-complete aware of `latex-mode` (defun ac-latex-mode-setup () ; add ac-sources to default ac-sources (setq ac-sources (append '(ac-source-math-unicode ac-source-math-latex ac-source-latex-commands) ac-sources))) (add-hook 'TeX-mode-hook 'ac-latex-mode-setup)
If you are using 'flyspell' you might want to activate the workaround:
By default unicode input (
ac-source-math-unicode) is not activated in latex math environments. In order to activate it, do
(setq ac-math-unicode-in-math-p t)
Unicode input is not restricted to LaTeX modes and is particularly useful in org-mode (with it's powerful exporting facilities), or web development tools where unicode is crucial.
Suppose you want it for mode
(add-to-list 'ac-modes 'XXX-mode) (defun ac-XXX-mode-setup () (add-to-list 'ac-sources 'ac-source-math-unicode)) (add-hook 'XXX-mode-hook 'ac-XXX-mode-setup)
You can use symbols lists to define your own ac sources.
Make math symbol completion work everywhere in LaTeX documents (default,
ac-source-math-latex works only in math mode):
(defvar ac-source-math-latex-everywhere '((candidates . ac-math-symbols-latex) (prefix . ac-math-prefix) (action . ac-math-action-latex) (symbol . "l")))
