Project wide provider for Autocomplete-plus


#1

Is there any provider that feeds results from all project files or at least all open files?


#2

it will be huge performance hit.


#3

Why is that?

You don’t need to parse all files all the time. You can do it once you open a file, or when you open a folder.


#4

The default provider has an option to include completions from all the open buffers:

AFAIK the symbol provider may be able to provide completion for symbols from the whole project when using CTAGS.


#5

Hey @abe in which package is that option?


#6

Built in auto-complete.

Thanks @v3ss0n I missed it somehow.

It was enabled, but I didn’t get suggestions from other files. The problem turned out to be the ‘symbol’ provider. I changed it to ‘fuzy’ and it works great now.
