NeoBundle 'zchee/deoplete-jedi'
# or
Plug 'zchee/deoplete-jedi'

Note: If you don't want to use a plugin manager, you will need to clone this repo recursively:

git clone --recursive

When updating the plugin, you will want to be sure that the Jedi submodule is kept up to date with:

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_cache: Enables caching of completions for faster results. Default: 1
  • g:deoplete#sources#jedi#show_docstring: Shows docstring in preview window. Default: 0
  • g:deoplete#sources#jedi#python_path: Set the Python interpreter path to use for the completion server. deoplete-jedi uses the first available python in $PATH. Use this only if you want use a specific Python interpreter. This has no effect if $VIRTUAL_ENV is present in the environment. Note: This is completely unrelated to configuring Neovim.
  • g:deoplete#sources#jedi#debug_server: Enable logging from the server. If set to 1, server messages are emitted to Deoplete's log file. This can optionally be a string that points to a file for separate logging. The log level will be inherited from deoplete#enable_logging().
  • g:deoplete#sources#jedi#extra_path: A list of extra paths to add to sys.path when performing completions.

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 :h nvim-python-quickstart for more information.
