I'm working on frontend project, we're using root alias, like:

import from '~/src/components/button';

instead of:

import from '../../../../../components/button';

But when I try to import from ~/, my nvim is not able to autocomplete the path.

How can I let my nvim to know from where it should suggest the path?

  • This is a bit vague but perhaps you're issue is with the ~. Depending on the context, to get ~ to resolve you have to use expand('~/some/file') rather than just '~/some/file'.

  • oh! actually I defined ~ as my project root, but I can redefine it to @/ or something else.

  • How/where did you alias the path? (Regardless, ~ is probably a bad choice because of the confusion with home dir ~.)
