Vcomplete - Visual completions Vcomplete provides a minor mode enhancing the default completion list buffer, providing visual aids for selecting completions. Installation: From NonGNU ELPA: M-x package-install RET vcomplete RET From the repository: Clone the repository: $ git clone 'https://git.sr.ht/~dsemy/vcomplete' Build the package: $ cd vcomplete $ make Install the package: M-x package-install-file RET /path/to/clone/vcomplete-VERSION.tar RET Usage: Enable ‘vcomplete-mode’: (vcomplete-mode) For use-package users: (use-package vcomplete :config (vcomplete-mode)) When vcomplete-mode is active: - The completion list buffer opens and updates automatically (see ‘vcomplete-auto-update’). - The completion list buffer can be controlled through the minibuffer (during minibuffer completion) or the current buffer (during in-buffer completion), if it's visible. - The currently selected completion is highlighted in the completion list buffer. C-n moves point to the next completion. C-p moves point to the previous completion. M-RET (C-M-m) chooses the completion at point. More commands can be added through ‘vcomplete-command-map’: (define-key vcomplete-command-map (kbd "C-a") #'my-command) You can customize ‘vcomplete-mode’ using the customize interface: M-x customize-group RET vcomplete RET For more information see the (Vcomplete) info node.
