I have installed YouCompleteMe in the past, but don't remember how. I recently decided to sync my
~.vim directory over multiple computers via a cloud service and realized I was inadvertently downloading a huge amount of language support I didn't need. I attempted to manually clear (ir)relevantly-named subdirectories, and then noticed that the completion suggestions I needed (for LaTeX; it will become clear, if it is not already I am not any kind of programmer) had stopped functioning. I would like to reinstall it from scratch.
So, trying to follow the documentation for YouCompleteMe and one YouTube video, I've now done the following:
- Deleted the
- Deleted the line
Plugin 'ycm-core/YouCompleteMe'from my
:PlugClean(which reports that there is nothing to clean),
- Readded the line
Plugin 'ycm-core/YouCompleteMe', done
:PlugInstall, which reports that there is nothing to be added.
I can do 3) and 4) in a loop indefinitely without anything changing, and
:PluginList reports the installedness of YouCompleteMe whenever the line
Plugin 'ycm-core/YouCompleteMe' is present in the
:so % has been run, without any apparent installation having happened in between.
I am obviously doing something very simple very incorrectly. What should I be doing instead?
