Strange autocomplete output when using go-plus


I’m writing an application in Go and using Go Plus. I also use autocomplete-plus to get completions when I’m typing.

Whenever I attempt to autocomplete a word in a Go file, I get strange output that includes the word and what I assume to be hidden control characters. Here’s a screenshot:

I have no idea what this is, even after searching and tinkering on my own. Can anyone help?


That looks like snippet syntax. It may be that one of your packages is confused between what autocomplete is supposed to be doing and the Go language snippets you have installed. I don’t use Go and so my knowledge of the packages here is nonexistent.


Thank you! I had the Atom “snippets” module disabled in my settings. Re-enabling it fixed the auto-completion output.
