The latest thing I’m missing from Vim is tab completion. I’d like to hit tab and have Emacs either insert a snippet or try to auto-complete the word based on what I just typed.
With lots of Googlizing I’ve managed to hack together a solution, it’s not perfect (yet) but still meets most of my needs for now.
Next create a
tab.el in the
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Here I am using cons to push YASnippets to the front of the hippie expand list, this means snippets are found before trying to auto-complete words.
As I said this is not perfect, I can’t auto-complete in the middle of a snippet process for instance but it’s not a bad start.
