I use Vim a lot for writing tasks and I used ^p for completions. However, is there a plugin that suggests you completions while typing like in Andriod-smartphones ? Thanks.


By "suggests you completions" I assume you mean that the completion popup appears automatically without interrupting your typing. If so, yes, there are a number of them. To name two AutoComplPop and YouCompleteMe.

You can use VimAwesome to search for others. It has an entire category dedicated to "autocomplete", a super set of the type of plugin you're interested in. Included are the two mentioned by Karl in the comments below: nvim-completion-manager and deoplete.

  • I think deoplete and nvim-completion-manager should also be mentioned here. I think both are modern and good alternative. Jan 27 '18 at 9:36
  • Yes,exactly what I have searched... Thank you very much for our prompt response. Jan 27 '18 at 10:49
  • @ScottFritzpatrick You're welcome. Good luck.
