Autocomplete appends suggestions


I googled this bug, but only found issues several years ago.

I have a variable $shoppingCart in my code. When I start typing $shop Atom suggest my variable and I select it from the context menu, it inserts the complete variable name, not just the missing last chars. At the end I have $shopshoppingCart.

Here is a GIF


Is this in safe mode?


Had started in safe mode and seems the problem is not present in safe mode


Seems to be a problem with autocomplete-php

It is the same as in VS Code. Plain editor is not usable and most plugins are adding more harm than good.


Likely a problem with the open-source community’s degraded interest in PHP rather than anything to do with either of the editors. Popular languages get top inclusion and the most people interested in making the packages work well.
