Gitter room Build status Coverage status

NOTE: Minimum Requirements Have Changed

Our policy is to support the Vim version that's in the latest LTS of Ubuntu. That's currently Ubuntu 20.04 which contains vim-nox at v8.1.2269.

For neovim users, 0.4.4 is required.

NOTE: Minimum compiler versions have been increased

In order to provide the best possible performance and stability, ycmd has updated its code to C++17. This requires a version bump of the minimum supported compilers. The new requirements are:

Compiler Current Min
GCC 8
Clang 7
MSVC 15.7 (VS 2017)

Help, Advice, Support

Looking for help, advice or support? Having problems getting YCM to work?

First carefully read the installation instructions for your OS. We recommend you use the supplied install.py - the "full" installation guide is for rare, advanced use cases and most users should use install.py.

If the server isn't starting and you're getting a "YouCompleteMe unavailable" error, check the Troubleshooting guide.

Next check the User Guide section on the semantic completer that you are using. For C/C++/Objective-C/Objective-C++/CUDA, you must read this section.

Finally, check the FAQ.

If, after reading the installation and user guides, and checking the FAQ, you're still having trouble, check the contacts section below for how to get in touch.

Please do NOT go to #vim on freenode for support. Please contact the YouCompleteMe maintainers directly using the contact details below.

Intro

YouCompleteMe is a fast, as-you-type, fuzzy-search code completion, comprehension and refactoring engine for Vim.

It has several completion engines built in and supports any protocol-compliant Language Server, so can work with practically any language. YouCompleteMe contains:

  • an identifier-based engine that works with every programming language,
  • a powerful clangd-based engine that provides native semantic code completion for C/C++/Objective-C/Objective-C++/CUDA (from now on referred to as "the C-family languages"),
  • a Jedi-based completion engine for Python 2 and 3,
  • an OmniSharp-Roslyn-based completion engine for C#,
  • a Gopls-based completion engine for Go,
  • a TSServer-based completion engine for JavaScript and TypeScript,
  • a rust-analyzer-based completion engine for Rust,
  • a jdt.ls-based completion engine for Java.
  • a generic Language Server Protocol implementation for any language
  • and an omnifunc-based completer that uses data from Vim's omnicomplete system to provide semantic completions for many other languages (Ruby, PHP etc.).

YouCompleteMe GIF completion demo

Here's an explanation of what happens in the last GIF demo above.

First, realize that no keyboard shortcuts had to be pressed to get the list of completion candidates at any point in the demo. The user just types and the suggestions pop up by themselves. If the user doesn't find the completion suggestions relevant and/or just wants to type, they can do so; the completion engine will not interfere.

When the user sees a useful completion string being offered, they press the TAB key to accept it. This inserts the completion string. Repeated presses of the TAB key cycle through the offered completions.

If the offered completions are not relevant enough, the user can continue typing to further filter out unwanted completions.

A critical thing to notice is that the completion filtering is NOT based on the input being a string prefix of the completion (but that works too). The input needs to be a subsequence match of a completion. This is a fancy way of saying that any input characters need to be present in a completion string in the order in which they appear in the input. So abc is a subsequence of xaybgc, but not of xbyxaxxc. After the filter, a complicated sorting system ranks the completion strings so that the most relevant ones rise to the top of the menu (so you usually need to press TAB just once).

All of the above works with any programming language because of the identifier-based completion engine. It collects all of the identifiers in the current file and other files you visit (and your tags files) and searches them when you type (identifiers are put into per-filetype groups).

The demo also shows the semantic engine in use. When the user presses ., -> or :: while typing in insert mode (for C++; different triggers are used for other languages), the semantic engine is triggered (it can also be triggered with a keyboard shortcut; see the rest of the docs).

The last thing that you can see in the demo is YCM's diagnostic display features (the little red X that shows up in the left gutter; inspired by Syntastic) if you are editing a C-family file. As the completer engine compiles your file and detects warnings or errors, they will be presented in various ways. You don't need to save your file or press any keyboard shortcut to trigger this, it "just happens" in the background.

And that's not all...

YCM might be the only vim completion engine with the correct Unicode support. Though we do assume UTF-8 everywhere.

YCM also provides semantic IDE-like features in a number of languages, including:

For example, here's a demo of signature help:

Signature Help Early Demo

Below we can see YCM being able to do a few things:

  • Retrieve references across files
  • Go to declaration/definition
  • Expand auto in C++
  • Fix some common errors with FixIt
  • Not shown in the gif is GoToImplementation and GoToType for servers that support it.

Features vary by file type, so make sure to check out the file type feature summary and the full list of completer subcommands to find out what's available for your favourite languages.

You'll also find that YCM has filepath completers (try typing ./ in a file) and a completer that integrates with UltiSnips.

Installation

Requirements

Minimum supported versions:

  • Vim v8.1.2269 huge build, compiled with Python 3.6 support (aka vim-nox in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS)
  • Python 3.6 runtime, compiled with --enable-shared (or --enable-framework)

Please note that some features are not availble in Neovim, and Neovim is not officially supported.

macOS

Quick start, installing all completers

  • Install YCM plugin via Vundle
  • Install cmake, macvim and python; Note that the pre-installed macOS system vim is not supported.
brew install cmake python mono go nodejs
  • For java support you must install a JDK, one way to do this is with homebrew:
$ brew install java
$ sudo ln -sfn /usr/local/opt/openjdk/libexec/openjdk.jdk /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/openjdk.jdk
  • Pre-installed macOS system Vim does not support Python 3. So you need to install either a Vim that supports Python 3 OR MacVim with Homebrew:

    • Option 1: Installing a Vim that supports Python 3
    brew install vim
    
    brew install macvim
    
  • Compile YCM

cd ~/.vim/bundle/YouCompleteMe
python3 install.py --all

Explanation for the quick start

These instructions (using install.py) are the quickest way to install YouCompleteMe, however they may not work for everyone. If the following instructions don't work for you, check out the full installation guide.

A Vim that supports Python 3 or MacVim is required. YCM won't work with the pre-installed Vim from Apple as its Python 3 support is broken. If you don't already use a Vim that supports Python 3 or MacVim, install it with Homebrew. Install CMake as well:

brew install vim cmake     

OR

brew install macvim cmake

Install YouCompleteMe with Vundle.

Remember: YCM is a plugin with a compiled component. If you update YCM using Vundle and the ycm_core library APIs have changed (happens rarely), YCM will notify you to recompile it. You should then rerun the install process.

NOTE: If you want C-family completion, you MUST have the latest Xcode installed along with the latest Command Line Tools (they are installed automatically when you run clang for the first time, or manually by running xcode-select --install)

Compiling YCM with semantic support for C-family languages through clangd:

cd ~/.vim/bundle/YouCompleteMe
./install.py --clangd-completer

Compiling YCM without semantic support for C-family languages:

cd ~/.vim/bundle/YouCompleteMe
./install.py

The following additional language support options are available:

  • C# support: install Mono with Homebrew or by downloading the Mono macOS package and add --cs-completer when calling install.py.
  • Go support: install Go and add --go-completer when calling install.py.
  • JavaScript and TypeScript support: install Node.js and npm and add --ts-completer when calling install.py.
  • Rust support: add --rust-completer when calling install.py.
  • Java support: install JDK8 (version 8 required) and add --java-completer when calling install.py.

To simply compile with everything enabled, there's a --all flag. You need to specify it manually by adding --clangd-completer. So, to install with all language features, ensure xbuild, go, node and npm tools are installed and in your PATH, then simply run:

cd ~/.vim/bundle/YouCompleteMe
./install.py --all

That's it. You're done. Refer to the User Guide section on how to use YCM. Don't forget that if you want the C-family semantic completion engine to work, you will need to provide the compilation flags for your project to YCM. It's all in the User Guide.

YCM comes with sane defaults for its options, but you still may want to take a look at what's available for configuration. There are a few interesting options that are conservatively turned off by default that you may want to turn on.

Linux 64-bit

The following assume you're using Ubuntu 20.04.

Quick start, installing all completers

  • Install YCM plugin via Vundle
  • Install cmake, vim and python
apt install build-essential cmake vim-nox python3-dev
  • Install mono-complete, go, node, java and npm

Explanation for the quick start

These instructions (using install.py) are the quickest way to install YouCompleteMe, however they may not work for everyone. If the following instructions don't work for you, check out the full installation guide.

Make sure you have Vim 7.4.1578 with Python 3 support. The Vim package on Fedora 27 and later and the pre-installed Vim on Ubuntu 16.04 and later are recent enough. You can see the version of Vim installed by running vim --version. If the version is too old, you may need to compile Vim from source (don't worry, it's easy).

NOTE: For all features, such as signature help, use Vim 8.1.1875 or later.

Install YouCompleteMe with Vundle.

Remember: YCM is a plugin with a compiled component. If you update YCM using Vundle and the ycm_core library APIs have changed (happens rarely), YCM will notify you to recompile it. You should then rerun the install process.

Install development tools, CMake, and Python headers:

  • Fedora 27 and later:
sudo dnf install cmake gcc-c++ make python3-devel
  • Ubuntu 14.04:
sudo apt install build-essential cmake3 python3-dev
  • Ubuntu 16.04 and later:
sudo apt install build-essential cmake python3-dev

Compiling YCM with semantic support for C-family languages through clangd:

cd ~/.vim/bundle/YouCompleteMe

Windows

Quick start, installing all completers

cd YouCompleteMe
python3 install.py --all

Explanation for the quick start

These instructions (using install.py) are the quickest way to install YouCompleteMe, however they may not work for everyone. If the following instructions don't work for you, check out the full installation guide.

Important: we assume that you are using the cmd.exe command prompt and that you know how to add an executable to the PATH environment variable.

Make sure you have at least Vim 7.4.1578 with Python 3 support. You can check the version and which Python is supported by typing :version inside Vim. Look at the features included: +python3/dyn for Python 3. Take note of the Vim architecture, i.e. 32 or 64-bit. It will be important when choosing the Python installer. We recommend using a 64-bit client. Daily updated installers of 32-bit and 64-bit Vim with Python 3 support are available.

NOTE: For all features, such as signature help, use Vim 8.1.1875 or later.

Add the line:

set encoding=utf-8

to your vimrc if not already present. This option is required by YCM. Note that it does not prevent you from editing a file in another encoding than UTF-8. You can do that by specifying the ++enc argument to the :e command.

Install YouCompleteMe with Vundle.

Remember: YCM is a plugin with a compiled component. If you update YCM using Vundle and the ycm_core library APIs have changed (happens rarely), YCM will notify you to recompile it. You should then rerun the install process.

Download and install the following software:

  • Python 3. Be sure to pick the version corresponding to your Vim architecture. It is Windows x86 for a 32-bit Vim and Windows x86-64 for a 64-bit Vim. We recommend installing Python 3. Additionally, the version of Python you install must match up exactly with the version of Python that Vim is looking for. Type :version and look at the bottom of the page at the list of compiler flags. Look for flags that look similar to -DDYNAMIC_PYTHON3_DLL=\"python36.dll\". This indicates that Vim is looking for Python 3.6. You'll need one or the other installed, matching the version number exactly.
  • CMake. Add CMake executable to the PATH environment variable.
  • Visual Studio Build Tools 2017. During setup, select Visual C++ build tools in Workloads.

Compiling YCM with semantic support for C-family languages through clangd:

cd %USERPROFILE%/vimfiles/bundle/YouCompleteMe
python install.py --clangd-completer

Compiling YCM without semantic support for C-family languages:

cd %USERPROFILE%/vimfiles/bundle/YouCompleteMe
python install.py

The following additional language support options are available:

  • C# support: add --cs-completer when calling install.py. Be sure that the build utility msbuild is in your PATH.
  • Go support: install Go and add --go-completer when calling install.py.
  • JavaScript and TypeScript support: install Node.js and npm and add --ts-completer when calling install.py.
  • Rust support: add --rust-completer when calling install.py.
  • Java support: install JDK8 (version 8 required) and add --java-completer when calling install.py.

To simply compile with everything enabled, there's a --all flag. You need to specify it manually by adding --clangd-completer. So, to install with all language features, ensure msbuild, go, node and npm tools are installed and in your PATH, then simply run:

cd %USERPROFILE%/vimfiles/bundle/YouCompleteMe
python install.py --all

You can specify the Microsoft Visual C++ (MSVC) version using the --msvc option. YCM officially supports MSVC 14 (Visual Studio 2015), 15 (2017) and MSVC 16 (Visual Studio 2019).

That's it. You're done. Refer to the User Guide section on how to use YCM. Don't forget that if you want the C-family semantic completion engine to work, you will need to provide the compilation flags for your project to YCM. It's all in the User Guide.

User Guide

General Usage

If the offered completions are too broad, keep typing characters; YCM will continue refining the offered completions based on your input.

Filtering is "smart-case" and "smart-diacritic" sensitive; if you are typing only lowercase letters, then it's case-insensitive. If your input contains uppercase letters, then the uppercase letters in your query must match uppercase letters in the completion strings (the lowercase letters still match both). On top of that, a letter with no diacritic marks will match that letter with or without marks:

matches foo fôo fOo fÔo
foo ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
fôo ✔️ ✔️
fOo ✔️ ✔️
fÔo ✔️

Use the TAB key to accept a completion and continue pressing TAB to cycle through the completions. Use Shift-TAB to cycle backwards. Note that if you're using console Vim (that is, not Gvim or MacVim) then it's likely that the Shift-TAB binding will not work because the console will not pass it to Vim. You can remap the keys; see the Options section below.

Knowing a little bit about how YCM works internally will prevent confusion. YCM has several completion engines: an identifier-based completer that collects all of the identifiers in the current file and other files you visit (and your tags files) and searches them when you type (identifiers are put into per-filetype groups).

There are also several semantic engines in YCM. There are libclang-based and clangd-based completers that provide semantic completion for C-family languages. There's a Jedi-based completer for semantic completion for Python. There's also an omnifunc-based completer that uses data from Vim's omnicomplete system to provide semantic completions when no native completer exists for that language in YCM.

There are also other completion engines, like the UltiSnips completer and the filepath completer.

YCM automatically detects which completion engine would be the best in any situation. On occasion, it queries several of them at once, merges the outputs and presents the results to you.

Client-Server Architecture

YCM has a client-server architecture; the Vim part of YCM is only a thin client that talks to the ycmd HTTP+JSON server that has the vast majority of YCM logic and functionality. The server is started and stopped automatically as you start and stop Vim.

Completion String Ranking

The subsequence filter removes any completions that do not match the input, but then the sorting system kicks in. It's actually very complicated and uses lots of factors, but suffice it to say that "word boundary" (WB) subsequence character matches are "worth" more than non-WB matches. In effect, this means given an input of "gua", the completion "getUserAccount" would be ranked higher in the list than the "Fooguxa" completion (both of which are subsequence matches). A word-boundary character are all capital characters, characters preceded by an underscore and the first letter character in the completion string.

Signature Help

Signature help is an experimental feature for which we value your feedback. Valid signatures are displayed in a second popup menu and the current signature is highlighed along with the current arguemnt.

Signature help is triggered in insert mode automatically when g:ycm_auto_trigger is enabled and is not supported when it is not enabled.

The signatures popup is hidden when there are no matching signatures or when you leave insert mode. There is no key binding to clear the popup.

For more details on this feature and a few demos, check out the PR that proposed it.

General Semantic Completion

You can use Ctrl+Space to trigger the completion suggestions anywhere, even without a string prefix. This is useful to see which top-level functions are available for use.

C-family Semantic Completion

NOTE: YCM originally used the libclang based engine for C-family, but users should migrate to clangd, as it provides more features and better performance. Users who rely on override_filename in their .ycm_extra_conf.py will need to stay on the old libclang engine. Instructions on how to stay on the old engine are available on the wiki.

Advantages of clangd over libclang include:

  • Project wide indexing: Clangd has both dynamic and static index support. The dynamic index stores up-to-date symbols coming from any files you are currently editing, whereas static index contains project-wide symbol information. This symbol information is used for code completion and code navigation. Whereas libclang is limited to the current translation unit(TU).
  • Code navigation: Clangd provides all the GoTo requests libclang provides and it improves those using the above mentioned index information to contain project-wide information rather than just the current TU.
  • Rename: Clangd can perform semantic rename operations on the current file, whereas libclang doesn’t support such functionality.
  • Code Completion: Clangd can perform code completions at a lower latency than libclang; also, it has information about all the symbols in your project so it can suggest items outside your current TU and also provides proper #include insertions for those items.
  • Signature help: Clangd provides signature help so that you can see the names and types of arguments when calling functions.
  • Format Code: Clangd provides code formatting either for the selected lines or the whole file, whereas libclang doesn’t have such functionality.
  • Performance: Clangd has faster reparse and code completion times compared to libclang.

In order to perform semantic analysis such as code completion, GoTo and diagnostics, YouCompleteMe uses clangd, which makes use of clang compiler, sometimes also referred to as llvm. Like any compiler, clang also requires a set of compile flags in order to parse your code. Simply put: If clang can't parse your code, YouCompleteMe can't provide semantic analysis.

There are 2 methods which can be used to provide compile flags to clang:

Option 1: Use a compilation database

The easiest way to get YCM to compile your code is to use a compilation database. A compilation database is usually generated by your build system (e.g. CMake) and contains the compiler invocation for each compilation unit in your project.

For information on how to generate a compilation database, see the clang documentation. In short:

  • If using CMake, add -DCMAKE_EXPORT_COMPILE_COMMANDS=ON when configuring (or add set( CMAKE_EXPORT_COMPILE_COMMANDS ON ) to CMakeLists.txt) and copy or symlink the generated database to the root of your project.
  • If using Ninja, check out the compdb tool (-t compdb) in its docs.
  • If using GNU make, check out compiledb or Bear.
  • For other build systems, check out .ycm_extra_conf.py below.

If no .ycm_extra_conf.py is found, YouCompleteMe automatically tries to load a compilation database if there is one.

YCM looks for a file named compile_commands.json in the directory of the opened file or in any directory above it in the hierarchy (recursively); when the file is found before a local .ycm_extra_conf.py, YouCompleteMe stops searching the directories and lets clangd take over and handle the flags.

Option 2: Provide the flags manually

If you don't have a compilation database, or aren't able to generate one, you have to tell YouCompleteMe how to compile your code some other way.

Every C-family project is different. It is not possible for YCM to guess what compiler flags to supply for your project. Fortunately, YCM provides a mechanism for you to generate the flags for a particular file with arbitrary complexity. This is achieved by requiring you to provide a Python module which implements a trivial function which, given the file name as argument, returns a list of compiler flags to use to compile that file.

YCM looks for a .ycm_extra_conf.py file in the directory of the opened file or in any directory above it in the hierarchy (recursively); when the file is found, it is loaded (only once!) as a Python module. YCM calls a Settings method in that module which should provide it with the information necessary to compile the current file. You can also provide a path to a global configuration file with the g:ycm_global_ycm_extra_conf option, which will be used as a fallback. To prevent the execution of malicious code from a file you didn't write YCM will ask you once per .ycm_extra_conf.py if it is safe to load. This can be disabled and you can white-/blacklist files. See the g:ycm_confirm_extra_conf and g:ycm_extra_conf_globlist options respectively.

This system was designed this way so that the user can perform any arbitrary sequence of operations to produce a list of compilation flags YCM should hand to Clang.

NOTE: It is highly recommended to include -x <language> flag to libclang. This is so that the correct language is detected, particularly for header files. Common values are -x c for C, -x c++ for C++, -x objc for Objective-C, and -x cuda for CUDA.

To give you an impression, if your C++ project is trivial, and your usual compilation command is: g++ -Wall -Wextra -Werror -o FILE.o FILE.cc, then the following .ycm_extra_conf.py is enough to get semantic analysis from YouCompleteMe:

def Settings( **kwargs ):
  return {
    'flags': [ '-x', 'c++', '-Wall', '-Wextra', '-Werror' ],
  }

As you can see from the trivial example, YCM calls the Settings method which returns a dictionary with a single element 'flags'. This element is a list of compiler flags to pass to libclang for the current file. The absolute path of that file is accessible under the filename key of the kwargs dictionary. That's it! This is actually enough for most projects, but for complex projects it is not uncommon to integrate directly with an existing build system using the full power of the Python language.

For a more elaborate example, see ycmd's own .ycm_extra_conf.py. You should be able to use it as a starting point. Don't just copy/paste that file somewhere and expect things to magically work; your project needs different flags. Hint: just replace the strings in the flags variable with compilation flags necessary for your project. That should be enough for 99% of projects.

You could also consider using YCM-Generator to generate the ycm_extra_conf.py file.

Errors during compilation

If Clang encounters errors when compiling the header files that your file includes, then it's probably going to take a long time to get completions. When the completion menu finally appears, it's going to have a large number of unrelated completion strings (type/function names that are not actually members). This is because Clang fails to build a precompiled preamble for your file if there are any errors in the included headers and that preamble is key to getting fast completions.

Call the :YcmDiags command to see if any errors or warnings were detected in your file.

Java Semantic Completion

Java quick Start

  1. Ensure that you have enabled the Java completer. See the installation guide for details.

  2. Create a project file (gradle or maven) file in the root directory of your Java project, by following the instructions below.

  3. (Optional) Configure the LSP server. The jdt.ls configuration options can be found in their codebase.

  4. If you previously used Eclim or Syntastic for Java, disable them for Java.

  5. Edit a Java file from your project.

For the best experience, we highly recommend at least Vim 8.1.1875 when using Java support with YouCompleteMe.

Java Project Files

In order to provide semantic analysis, the Java completion engine requires knowledge of your project structure. In particular it needs to know the class path to use, when compiling your code. Fortunately jdt.ls supports eclipse project files, maven projects and gradle projects.

NOTE: Our recommendation is to use either maven or gradle projects.

Diagnostic display - Syntastic

The native support for Java includes YCM's native realtime diagnostics display. This can conflict with other diagnostics plugins like Syntastic, so when enabling Java support, please manually disable Syntastic Java diagnostics.

Add the following to your vimrc:

let g:syntastic_java_checkers = []

Diagnostic display - Eclim

The native support for Java includes YCM's native realtime diagnostics display. This can conflict with other diagnostics plugins like Eclim, so when enabling Java support, please manually disable Eclim Java diagnostics.

Add the following to your vimrc:

let g:EclimFileTypeValidate = 0

NOTE: We recommend disabling Eclim entirely when editing Java with YCM's native Java support. This can be done temporarily with :EclimDisable.

Eclipse Projects

Eclipse style projects require two files: .project and .classpath.

If your project already has these files due to previously being set up within eclipse, then no setup is required. jdt.ls should load the project just fine (it's basically eclipse after all).

However, if not, it is possible (easy in fact) to craft them manually, though it is not recommended. You're better off using gradle or maven (see below).

A simple eclipse style project example can be found in the ycmd test directory. Normally all that is required is to copy these files to the root of your project and to edit the .classpath to add additional libraries, such as:

  <classpathentry kind="lib" path="/path/to/external/jar" />
  <classpathentry kind="lib" path="/path/to/external/java/source" />

It may also be necessary to change the directory in which your source files are located (paths are relative to the .project file itself):

  <classpathentry kind="src" output="target/classes" path="path/to/src/" />

NOTE: The eclipse project and classpath files are not a public interface and it is highly recommended to use Maven or Gradle project definitions if you don't already use eclipse to manage your projects.

Maven Projects

Maven needs a file named pom.xml in the root of the project. Once again a simple pom.xml can be found in ycmd source.

The format of pom.xml files is way beyond the scope of this document, but we do recommend using the various tools that can generate them for you, if you're not familiar with them already.

Gradle Projects

Gradle projects require a build.gradle. Again, there is a trivial example in ycmd's tests.

The format of build.gradle files is way beyond the scope of this document, but we do recommend using the various tools that can generate them for you, if you're not familiar with them already.

Some users have experienced issues with their jdt.ls when using the Groovy language for their build.gradle. As such, try using Kotlin instead.

Troubleshooting

If you're not getting completions or diagnostics, check the server health:

  • The Java completion engine takes a while to start up and parse your project. You should be able to see its progress in the command line, and :YcmDebugInfo. Ensure that the following lines are present:
--   jdt.ls Java Language Server running
--   jdt.ls Java Language Server Startup Status: Ready
  • If the above lines don't appear after a few minutes, check the jdt.ls and ycmd log files using :YcmToggleLogs . The jdt.ls log file is called .log (for some reason).

If you get a message about "classpath is incomplete", then make sure you have correctly configured the project files.

If you get messages about unresolved imports, then make sure you have correctly configured the project files, in particular check that the classpath is set correctly.

C# Semantic Completion

YCM relies on OmniSharp-Roslyn to provide completion and code navigation. OmniSharp-Roslyn needs a solution file for a C# project and there are two ways of letting YCM know about your solution files.

Automaticly discovered solution files

YCM will scan all parent directories of the file currently being edited and look for file with .sln extension.

Manually specified solution files

If YCM loads .ycm_extra_conf.py which contains CSharpSolutionFile function, YCM will try to use that to determine the solution file. This is useful when one wants to override the default behaviour and specify a solution file that is not in any of the parent directories of the currently edited file. Example:

def CSharpSolutionFile( filepath ):
  # `filepath` is the path of the file user is editing
  return '/path/to/solution/file' # Can be relative to the `.ycm_extra_conf.py`

If the path returned by CSharpSolutionFile is not an actual file, YCM will fall back to the other way of finding the file.

Python Semantic Completion

YCM relies on the Jedi engine to provide completion and code navigation. By default, it will pick the version of Python running the ycmd server and use its sys.path. While this is fine for simple projects, this needs to be configurable when working with virtual environments or in a project with third-party packages. The next sections explain how to do that.

Working with virtual environments

A common practice when working on a Python project is to install its dependencies in a virtual environment and develop the project inside that environment. To support this, YCM needs to know the interpreter path of the virtual environment. You can specify it by creating a .ycm_extra_conf.py file at the root of your project with the following contents:

def Settings( **kwargs ):
  return {
    'interpreter_path': '/path/to/virtual/environment/python'
  }

where /path/to/virtual/environment/python is the path to the Python used by the virtual environment you are working in. Typically, the executable can be found in the Scripts folder of the virtual environment directory on Windows and in the bin folder on other platforms.

If you don't like having to create a .ycm_extra_conf.py file at the root of your project and would prefer to specify the interpreter path with a Vim option, read the Configuring through Vim options section.

Working with third-party packages

Another common practice is to put the dependencies directly into the project and add their paths to sys.path at runtime in order to import them. YCM needs to be told about this path manipulation to support those dependencies. This can be done by creating a .ycm_extra_conf.py file at the root of the project. This file must define a Settings( **kwargs ) function returning a dictionary with the list of paths to prepend to sys.path under the sys_path key. For instance, the following .ycm_extra_conf.py

def Settings( **kwargs ):
  return {
    'sys_path': [
      '/path/to/some/third_party/package',
      '/path/to/another/third_party/package'
    ]
  }

adds the paths /path/to/some/third_party/package and /path/to/another/third_party/package at the start of sys.path.

If you would rather prepend paths to sys.path with a Vim option, read the Configuring through Vim options section.

If you need further control on how to add paths to sys.path, you should define the PythonSysPath( **kwargs ) function in the .ycm_extra_conf.py file. Its keyword arguments are sys_path which contains the default sys.path, and interpreter_path which is the path to the Python interpreter. Here's a trivial example that insert the /path/to/third_party/package path at the second position of sys.path:

def PythonSysPath( **kwargs ):
  sys_path = kwargs[ 'sys_path' ]
  sys_path.insert( 1, '/path/to/third_party/package' )
  return sys_path

A more advanced example can be found in YCM's own .ycm_extra_conf.py.

Configuring through Vim options

You may find inconvenient to have to create a .ycm_extra_conf.py file at the root of each one of your projects in order to set the path to the Python interpreter and/or add paths to sys.path and would prefer to be able to configure those through Vim options. Don't worry, this is possible by using the g:ycm_extra_conf_vim_data option and creating a global extra configuration file. Let's take an example. Suppose that you want to set the interpreter path with the g:ycm_python_interpreter_path option and prepend paths to sys.path with the g:ycm_python_sys_path option. Suppose also that you want to name the global extra configuration file global_extra_conf.py and that you want to put it in your HOME folder. You should then add the following lines to your vimrc:

let g:ycm_python_interpreter_path = ''
let g:ycm_python_sys_path = []
let g:ycm_extra_conf_vim_data = [
  \  'g:ycm_python_interpreter_path',
  \  'g:ycm_python_sys_path'
  \]
let g:ycm_global_ycm_extra_conf = '~/global_extra_conf.py'

and create the ~/global_extra_conf.py file with the following contents:

def Settings( **kwargs ):
  client_data = kwargs[ 'client_data' ]
  return {
    'interpreter_path': client_data[ 'g:ycm_python_interpreter_path' ],
    'sys_path': client_data[ 'g:ycm_python_sys_path' ]
  }

That's it. You are done. Note that you don't need to restart the server when setting one of the options. YCM will automatically pick the new values.

Rust Semantic Completion

YCM uses rust-analyzer for Rust semantic completion.

NOTE: Previously, YCM used rls for rust completion. This is no longer supported, as the Rust community has decided on rust-analyzer as the future of Rust tooling.

Completions and GoTo commands within the current crate and its dependencies should work out of the box with no additional configuration (provided that you built YCM with the --rust-completer flag; see the Installation section for details). The install script takes care of installing the Rust source code, so no configuration is necessary.

rust-analyzer supports a myriad of options. These are configured using LSP configuration, but sadly don't appear to be documented at the time of writing. However, there is some source code which might help.

Go Semantic Completion

Completions and GoTo commands should work out of the box (provided that you built YCM with the --go-completer flag; see the Installation section for details). The server only works for projects with the "canonical" layout.

gopls also has a handful of undocumented options for which the source code is the only reference.

JavaScript and TypeScript Semantic Completion

NOTE: YCM originally used the Tern engine for JavaScript but due to Tern not being maintained anymore by its main author and the TSServer engine offering more features, YCM is moving to TSServer. This won't affect you if you were already using Tern but you are encouraged to do the switch by deleting the third_party/ycmd/third_party/tern_runtime/node_modules directory in YCM folder. If you are a new user but still want to use Tern, you should pass the --js-completer option to the install.py script during installation. Further instructions on how to setup YCM with Tern are available on the wiki.

All JavaScript and TypeScript features are provided by the TSServer engine, which is included in the TypeScript SDK. To enable these features, install Node.js and npm and call the install.py script with the --ts-completer flag.

TSServer relies on the jsconfig.json file for JavaScript and the tsconfig.json file for TypeScript to analyze your project. Ensure the file exists at the root of your project.

To get diagnostics in JavaScript, set the checkJs option to true in your jsconfig.json file:

{
    "compilerOptions": {
        "checkJs": true
    }
}

Semantic Completion for Other Languages

C-family, C#, Go, Java, Python, Rust, and JavaScript/TypeScript languages are supported natively by YouCompleteMe using the Clang, OmniSharp-Roslyn, Gopls, jdt.ls, Jedi, rust-analyzer, and TSServer engines, respectively. Check the installation section for instructions to enable these features if desired.

Plugging an arbitrary LSP server

Similar to other LSP clients, YCM can use an arbitrary LSP server with the help of g:ycm_language_server option. An example of a value of this option would be:

let g:ycm_language_server = 
  \ [ 
  \   {
  \     'name': 'yaml',
  \     'cmdline': [ '/path/to/yaml/server/yaml-language-server', '--stdio' ],
  \     'filetypes': [ 'yaml' ]
  \   },
  \   {
  \     'name': 'rust',
  \     'cmdline': [ 'ra_lsp_server' ],
  \     'filetypes': [ 'rust' ],
  \     'project_root_files': [ 'Cargo.toml' ]
  \   },
  \   {
  \     'name': 'godot',
  \     'filetypes': [ 'gdscript' ],
  \     'port': 6008,
  \     'project_root_files': [ 'project.godot' ]
  \    }
  \ ]

Each dictionary contains the following keys:

  • name (string, mandatory): When configuring a LSP server the value of the name key will be used as the kwargs[ 'language' ]. Can be anything you like.
  • filetypes (list of string, mandatory): List of Vim filetypes this server should be used for.
  • project_root_files (list of string, optional): List of filenames to search for when trying to determine the project root.
  • cmdline (list of string, optional): If supplied, the server is started with this command line (each list element is a command line word). Typically, the server should be started with STDIO communication. If not supplied, port must be supplied.
  • port (number, optional): If supplied, ycmd will connect to the server at localhost:<port> using TCP (remote servers are not supported).
  • capabilities (dict, optional): If supplied, this is a dictionary that is merged with the LSP client capabilities reported to the language server. This can be used to enable or disable certain features, such as the support for configuraiton sections (workspace/configuration).

See the LSP Examples project for more examples of configuring the likes of PHP, Ruby, Kotlin, and D.

LSP Configuration

Many LSP servers allow some level of user configuration. YCM enables this with the help of .ycm_extra_conf.py files. Here's an example of jdt.ls user examples of configuring the likes of PHP, Ruby, Kotlin, D, and many, many more.

def Settings( **kwargs ):
  if kwargs[ 'language' ] == 'java':
    return {
      'ls': {
        'java.format.onType.enabled': True
      }
    }

The ls key tells YCM that the dictionary should be passed to the LSP server. For each of the LSP server's configuration you should look up the respective server's documentation.

Some servers request settings from arbitrary 'sections' of configuration. There is no concept of configuration sections in vim, so you can specify an additional config_sections dictionary which maps section to a dictionary of config required by the server. For example:

def Settings( **kwargs ):
  if kwargs[ 'language' ] == 'java':
    return {
      'ls': {
        'java.format.onType.enabled': True
      },
      'config_sections': {
        'some section': {
          'some option': 'some value'
        }
    }

The sections and options/values are complete server-specific and rarely well documented.

Using omnifunc for semantic completion

YCM will use your omnifunc (see :h omnifunc in Vim) as a source for semantic completions if it does not have a native semantic completion engine for your file's filetype. Vim comes with okayish omnifuncs for various languages like Ruby, PHP, etc. It depends on the language.

You can get a stellar omnifunc for Ruby with Eclim. Just make sure you have the latest Eclim installed and configured (this means Eclim >= 2.2.* and Eclipse >= 4.2.*).

After installing Eclim remember to create a new Eclipse project within your application by typing :ProjectCreate <path-to-your-project> -n ruby inside vim and don't forget to have let g:EclimCompletionMethod = 'omnifunc' in your vimrc. This will make YCM and Eclim play nice; YCM will use Eclim's omnifuncs as the data source for semantic completions and provide the auto-triggering and subsequence-based matching (and other YCM features) on top of it.

Writing New Semantic Completers

You have two options here: writing an omnifunc for Vim's omnicomplete system that YCM will then use through its omni-completer, or a custom completer for YCM using the Completer API.

Here are the differences between the two approaches:

  • You have to use VimScript to write the omnifunc, but get to use Python to write for the Completer API; this by itself should make you want to use the API.
  • The Completer API is a much more powerful way to integrate with YCM and it provides a wider set of features. For instance, you can make your Completer query your semantic back-end in an asynchronous fashion, thus not blocking Vim's GUI thread while your completion system is processing stuff. This is impossible with VimScript. All of YCM's completers use the Completer API.
  • Performance with the Completer API is better since Python executes faster than VimScript.

If you want to use the omnifunc system, see the relevant Vim docs with :h complete-functions. For the Completer API, see the API docs.

If you want to upstream your completer into YCM's source, you should use the Completer API.

Diagnostic Display

YCM will display diagnostic notifications for the C-family, C#, Go, Java, JavaScript, Rust and TypeScript languages. Since YCM continuously recompiles your file as you type, you'll get notified of errors and warnings in your file as fast as possible.

Here are the various pieces of the diagnostic UI:

  • Icons show up in the Vim gutter on lines that have a diagnostic.
  • Regions of text related to diagnostics are highlighted (by default, a red wavy underline in gvim and a red background in vim).
  • Moving the cursor to a line with a diagnostic echoes the diagnostic text.
  • Vim's location list is automatically populated with diagnostic data (off by default, see options).

The new diagnostics (if any) will be displayed the next time you press any key on the keyboard. So if you stop typing and just wait for the new diagnostics to come in, that will not work. You need to press some key for the GUI to update.

Having to press a key to get the updates is unfortunate, but cannot be changed due to the way Vim internals operate; there is no way that a background task can update Vim's GUI after it has finished running. You have to press a key. This will make YCM check for any pending diagnostics updates.

You can force a full, blocking compilation cycle with the :YcmForceCompileAndDiagnostics command (you may want to map that command to a key; try putting nnoremap <F5> :YcmForceCompileAndDiagnostics<CR> in your vimrc). Calling this command will force YCM to immediately recompile your file and display any new diagnostics it encounters. Do note that recompilation with this command may take a while and during this time the Vim GUI will be blocked.

YCM will display a short diagnostic message when you move your cursor to the line with the error. You can get a detailed diagnostic message with the <leader>d key mapping (can be changed in the options) YCM provides when your cursor is on the line with the diagnostic.

You can also see the full diagnostic message for all the diagnostics in the current file in Vim's locationlist, which can be opened with the :lopen and :lclose commands (make sure you have set let g:ycm_always_populate_location_list = 1 in your vimrc). A good way to toggle the display of the locationlist with a single key mapping is provided by another (very small) Vim plugin called ListToggle (which also makes it possible to change the height of the locationlist window), also written by yours truly.

Diagnostic Highlighting Groups

You can change the styling for the highlighting groups YCM uses. For the signs in the Vim gutter, the relevant groups are:

  • YcmErrorSign, which falls back to group SyntasticErrorSign and then error if they exist
  • YcmWarningSign, which falls back to group SyntasticWarningSign and then todo if they exist

You can also style the line that has the warning/error with these groups:

  • YcmErrorLine, which falls back to group SyntasticErrorLine if it exists
  • YcmWarningLine, which falls back to group SyntasticWarningLine if it exists

Note that the line highlighting groups only work when the g:ycm_enable_diagnostic_signs option is set. If you want highlighted lines but no signs in the Vim gutter, ensure that your Vim version is 7.4.2201 or later and set the signcolumn option to off in your vimrc:

set signcolumn=off

The syntax groups used to highlight regions of text with errors/warnings:

  • YcmErrorSection, which falls back to group SyntasticError if it exists and then SpellBad
  • YcmWarningSection, which falls back to group SyntasticWarning if it exists and then SpellCap

Here's how you'd change the style for a group:

highlight YcmErrorLine guibg=#3f0000

Commands

The :YcmRestartServer command

If the ycmd completion server suddenly stops for some reason, you can restart it with this command.

The :YcmForceCompileAndDiagnostics command

Calling this command will force YCM to immediately recompile your file and display any new diagnostics it encounters. Do note that recompilation with this command may take a while and during this time the Vim GUI will be blocked.

You may want to map this command to a key; try putting nnoremap <F5> :YcmForceCompileAndDiagnostics<CR> in your vimrc.

The :YcmDiags command

Calling this command will fill Vim's locationlist with errors or warnings if any were detected in your file and then open it. If a given error or warning can be fixed by a call to :YcmCompleter FixIt, then (FixIt available) is appended to the error or warning text. See the FixIt completer subcommand for more information.

NOTE: The absence of (FixIt available) does not strictly imply a fix-it is not available as not all completers are able to provide this indication. For example, the c-sharp completer provides many fix-its but does not add this additional indication.

The g:ycm_open_loclist_on_ycm_diags option can be used to prevent the location list from opening, but still have it filled with new diagnostic data. See the Options section for details.

The :YcmShowDetailedDiagnostic command

This command shows the full diagnostic text when the user's cursor is on the line with the diagnostic.

The :YcmDebugInfo command

This will print out various debug information for the current file. Useful to see what compile commands will be used for the file if you're using the semantic completion engine.

The :YcmToggleLogs command

This command presents the list of logfiles created by YCM, the ycmd server, and the semantic engine server for the current filetype, if any. One of these logfiles can be opened in the editor (or closed if already open) by entering the corresponding number or by clicking on it with the mouse. Additionally, this command can take the logfile names as arguments. Use the <TAB> key (or any other key defined by the wildchar option) to complete the arguments or to cycle through them (depending on the value of the wildmode option). Each logfile given as an argument is directly opened (or closed if already open) in the editor. Only for debugging purposes.

The :YcmCompleter command

This command gives access to a number of additional IDE-like features in YCM, for things like semantic GoTo, type information, FixIt and refactoring.

This command accepts a range that can either be specified through a selection in one of Vim's visual modes (see :h visual-use) or on the command line. For instance, :2,5YcmCompleter will apply the command from line 2 to line 5. This is useful for the Format subcommand.

Call YcmCompleter without further arguments for a list of the commands you can call for the current completer.

See the file type feature summary for an overview of the features available for each file type. See the YcmCompleter subcommands section for more information on the available subcommands and their usage.

YcmCompleter Subcommands

NOTE: See the docs for the YcmCompleter command before tackling this section.

The invoked subcommand is automatically routed to the currently active semantic completer, so :YcmCompleter GoToDefinition will invoke the GoToDefinition subcommand on the Python semantic completer if the currently active file is a Python one and on the Clang completer if the currently active file is a C-family language one.

You may also want to map the subcommands to something less verbose; for instance, nnoremap <leader>jd :YcmCompleter GoTo<CR> maps the <leader>jd sequence to the longer subcommand invocation.

GoTo Commands

These commands are useful for jumping around and exploring code. When moving the cursor, the subcommands add entries to Vim's jumplist so you can use CTRL-O to jump back to where you were before invoking the command (and CTRL-I to jump forward; see :h jumplist for details). If there is more than one destination, the quickfix list (see :h quickfix) is populated with the available locations and opened to full width at the bottom of the screen. You can change this behavior by using the YcmQuickFixOpened autocommand.

The GoToInclude subcommand

Looks up the current line for a header and jumps to it.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda

The GoToDeclaration subcommand

Looks up the symbol under the cursor and jumps to its declaration.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda, cs, go, java, javascript, python, rust, typescript

The GoToDefinition subcommand

Looks up the symbol under the cursor and jumps to its definition.

NOTE: For C-family languages this only works in certain situations, namely when the definition of the symbol is in the current translation unit. A translation unit consists of the file you are editing and all the files you are including with #include directives (directly or indirectly) in that file.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda, cs, go, java, javascript, python, rust, typescript

The GoTo subcommand

This command tries to perform the "most sensible" GoTo operation it can. Currently, this means that it tries to look up the symbol under the cursor and jumps to its definition if possible; if the definition is not accessible from the current translation unit, jumps to the symbol's declaration. For C-family languages, it first tries to look up the current line for a header and jump to it. For C#, implementations are also considered and preferred.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda, cs, go, java, javascript, python, rust, typescript

The GoToImprecise subcommand

WARNING: This command trades correctness for speed!

Same as the GoTo command except that it doesn't recompile the file with libclang before looking up nodes in the AST. This can be very useful when you're editing files that take long to compile but you know that you haven't made any changes since the last parse that would lead to incorrect jumps. When you're just browsing around your codebase, this command can spare you quite a bit of latency.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda

The GoToSymbol <symbol query> subcommand

Finds the definition of all symbols matching a specified string. Note that this does not use any sort of smart/fuzzy matching.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda, cs, java, javascript, python, typescript

The GoToReferences subcommand

This command attempts to find all of the references within the project to the identifier under the cursor and populates the quickfix list with those locations.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda, java, javascript, python, typescript, rust

The GoToImplementation subcommand

Looks up the symbol under the cursor and jumps to its implementation (i.e. non-interface). If there are multiple implementations, instead provides a list of implementations to choose from.

Supported in filetypes: cs, go, java, rust, typescript, javascript

The GoToImplementationElseDeclaration subcommand

Looks up the symbol under the cursor and jumps to its implementation if one, else jump to its declaration. If there are multiple implementations, instead provides a list of implementations to choose from.

Supported in filetypes: cs

The GoToType subcommand

Looks up the symbol under the cursor and jumps to the definition of its type e.g. if the symbol is an object, go to the definition of its class.

Supported in filetypes: go, java, javascript, typescript

Semantic Information Commands

These commands are useful for finding static information about the code, such as the types of variables, viewing declarations and documentation strings.

The GetType subcommand

Echos the type of the variable or method under the cursor, and where it differs, the derived type.

For example:

    std::string s;

Invoking this command on s returns std::string => std::basic_string<char>

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda, java, javascript, go, python, typescript, rust

The GetTypeImprecise subcommand

WARNING: This command trades correctness for speed!

Same as the GetType command except that it doesn't recompile the file with libclang before looking up nodes in the AST. This can be very useful when you're editing files that take long to compile but you know that you haven't made any changes since the last parse that would lead to incorrect type. When you're just browsing around your codebase, this command can spare you quite a bit of latency.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda

The GetParent subcommand

Echos the semantic parent of the point under the cursor.

The semantic parent is the item that semantically contains the given position.

For example:

class C {
    void f();
};

void C::f() {

}

In the out-of-line definition of C::f, the semantic parent is the class C, of which this function is a member.

In the example above, both declarations of C::f have C as their semantic context, while the lexical context of the first C::f is C and the lexical context of the second C::f is the translation unit.

For global declarations, the semantic parent is the translation unit.

NOTE: Causes re-parsing of the current translation unit.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda

The GetDoc subcommand

Displays the preview window populated with quick info about the identifier under the cursor. Depending on the file type, this includes things like:

  • The type or declaration of identifier,
  • Doxygen/javadoc comments,
  • Python docstrings,
  • etc.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda, cs, go, java, javascript, python, typescript, rust

The GetDocImprecise subcommand

WARNING: This command trades correctness for speed!

Same as the GetDoc command except that it doesn't recompile the file with libclang before looking up nodes in the AST. This can be very useful when you're editing files that take long to compile but you know that you haven't made any changes since the last parse that would lead to incorrect docs. When you're just browsing around your codebase, this command can spare you quite a bit of latency.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda

Refactoring Commands

These commands make changes to your source code in order to perform refactoring or code correction. YouCompleteMe does not perform any action which cannot be undone, and never saves or writes files to the disk.

The FixIt subcommand

Where available, attempts to make changes to the buffer to correct diagnostics on the current line. Where multiple suggestions are available (such as when there are multiple ways to resolve a given warning, or where multiple diagnostics are reported for the current line), the options are presented and one can be selected.

Completers which provide diagnostics may also provide trivial modifications to the source in order to correct the diagnostic. Examples include syntax errors such as missing trailing semi-colons, spurious characters, or other errors which the semantic engine can deterministically suggest corrections.

If no fix-it is available for the current line, or there is no diagnostic on the current line, this command has no effect on the current buffer. If any modifications are made, the number of changes made to the buffer is echo'd and the user may use the editor's undo command to revert.

When a diagnostic is available, and g:ycm_echo_current_diagnostic is set to 1, then the text (FixIt) is appended to the echo'd diagnostic when the completer is able to add this indication. The text (FixIt available) is also appended to the diagnostic text in the output of the :YcmDiags command for any diagnostics with available fix-its (where the completer can provide this indication).

NOTE: Causes re-parsing of the current translation unit.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda, cs, go, java, javascript, rust, typescript

The RefactorRename <new name> subcommand

In supported file types, this command attempts to perform a semantic rename of the identifier under the cursor. This includes renaming declarations, definitions and usages of the identifier, or any other language-appropriate action. The specific behavior is defined by the semantic engine in use.

Similar to FixIt, this command applies automatic modifications to your source files. Rename operations may involve changes to multiple files, which may or may not be open in Vim buffers at the time. YouCompleteMe handles all of this for you. The behavior is described in the following section.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda, java, javascript, python, typescript, rust, cs

Multi-file Refactor

When a Refactor or FixIt command touches multiple files, YouCompleteMe attempts to apply those modifications to any existing open, visible buffer in the current tab. If no such buffer can be found, YouCompleteMe opens the file in a new small horizontal split at the top of the current window, applies the change, and then hides the window. NOTE: The buffer remains open, and must be manually saved. A confirmation dialog is opened prior to doing this to remind you that this is about to happen.

Once the modifications have been made, the quickfix list (see :help quickfix) is populated with the locations of all modifications. This can be used to review all automatic changes made by using :copen. Typically, use the CTRL-W <enter> combination to open the selected file in a new split. It is possible to customize how the quickfix window is opened by using the YcmQuickFixOpened autocommand.

The buffers are not saved automatically. That is, you must save the modified buffers manually after reviewing the changes from the quickfix list. Changes can be undone using Vim's powerful undo features (see :help undo). Note that Vim's undo is per-buffer, so to undo all changes, the undo commands must be applied in each modified buffer separately.

NOTE: While applying modifications, Vim may find files which are already open and have a swap file. The command is aborted if you select Abort or Quit in any such prompts. This leaves the Refactor operation partially complete and must be manually corrected using Vim's undo features. The quickfix list is not populated in this case. Inspect :buffers or equivalent (see :help buffers) to see the buffers that were opened by the command.

The Format subcommand

This command formats the whole buffer or some part of it according to the value of the Vim options shiftwidth and expandtab (see :h 'sw' and :h et respectively). To format a specific part of your document, you can either select it in one of Vim's visual modes (see :h visual-use) and run the command or directly enter the range on the command line, e.g. :2,5YcmCompleter Format to format it from line 2 to line 5.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda, java, javascript, go, typescript, rust, cs

The OrganizeImports subcommand

This command removes unused imports and sorts imports in the current file. It can also group imports from the same module in TypeScript and resolves imports in Java.

Supported in filetypes: java, javascript, typescript

Miscellaneous Commands

These commands are for general administration, rather than IDE-like features. They cover things like the semantic engine server instance and compilation flags.

The ExecuteCommand <args> subcommand

Some LSP completers (currently only Java completers) support executing server specific commands. Consult the jdt.ls documentation to find out what commands are supported and which arguments are expected.

The support for ExecuteCommand was implemented to support plugins like vimspector to debug java, but isn't limited to that specific use case.

The RestartServer subcommand

Restarts the semantic-engine-as-localhost-server for those semantic engines that work as separate servers that YCM talks to.

Supported in filetypes: c, cpp, objc, objcpp, cuda, cs, go, java, javascript, rust, typescript

The ReloadSolution subcommand

Instruct the Omnisharp-Roslyn server to clear its cache and reload all files from disk. This is useful when files are added, removed, or renamed in the solution, files are changed outside of Vim, or whenever Omnisharp-Roslyn cache is out-of-sync.

Supported in filetypes: cs

Functions

The youcompleteme#GetErrorCount function

Get the number of YCM Diagnostic errors. If no errors are present, this function returns 0.

For example:

  call youcompleteme#GetErrorCount()

Both this function and youcompleteme#GetWarningCount can be useful when integrating YCM with other Vim plugins. For example, a lightline user could add a diagnostics section to their statusline which would display the number of errors and warnings.

The youcompleteme#GetWarningCount function

Get the number of YCM Diagnostic warnings. If no warnings are present, this function returns 0.

For example:

  call youcompleteme#GetWarningCount()

The youcompleteme#GetCommandResponse( ... ) function

Run a completer subcommand and return the result as a string. This can be useful for example to display the GetGoc output in a popup window, e.g.:

let s:ycm_hover_popup = -1
function s:Hover()
  let response = youcompleteme#GetCommandResponse( 'GetDoc' )
  if response == ''
    return
  endif

  call popup_hide( s:ycm_hover_popup )
  let s:ycm_hover_popup = popup_atcursor( balloon_split( response ), {} )
endfunction

" CursorHold triggers in normal mode after a delay
autocmd CursorHold * call s:Hover()
" Or, if you prefer, a mapping:
nnoremap <silent> <leader>D :call <SID>Hover()<CR>

NOTE: This is only an example, for real hover support, see g:ycm_auto_hover.

If the completer subcommand result is not a string (for example, it's a FixIt or a Location), or if the completer subcommand raises an error, an empty string is returned, so that calling code does not have to check for complex error conditions.

The arguments to the function are the same as the arguments to the :YcmCompleter ex command, e.g. the name of the subcommand, followed by any additional subcommand arguments. As with the YcmCompleter command, if the first argument is ft=<filetype> the request is targeted at the specified filetype completer. This is an advanced usage and not necessary in most cases.

NOTE: The request is run synchronously and blocks Vim until the response is received, so we do not recommend running this as part of an autocommand that triggers frequently.

The youcompleteme#GetCommandResponseAsync( callback, ... ) function

This works exactly like youcompleteme#GetCommandResponse, except that instead of returning the result, you supply a callback argument. This argument must be a FuncRef to a function taking a single argument response. This callback will be called with the command response at some point later, or immediately.

As with youcompleteme#GetCommandResponse(), this function will call the callback with '' (an empty string) if the request is not sent, or if there was some sort of error.

Here's an example that's similar to the one above:

let s:ycm_hover_popup = -1
function! s:ShowDataPopup( response ) abort
  if response == ''
    return
  endif

  call popup_hide( s:ycm_hover_popup )
  let s:ycm_hover_popup = popup_atcursor( balloon_split( response ), {} )
endfunction

function! s:GetData() abort
  call youcompleteme#GetCommandResponseAsync(
    \ function( 's:ShowDataPopup' ),
    \ 'GetDoc' )
endfunction

autocommand CursorHold * call s:GetData()

Again, see g:ycm_auto_hover for proper hover support.

NOTE: The callback may be called immediately, in the stack frame that called this function.

NOTE: Only one command request can be outstanding at once. Attempting to request a second responses while the first is outstanding will result in the second callback being immediately called with ''.

Autocommands

The YcmLocationOpened autocommand

This User autocommand is fired when YCM opens the location list window in response to the YcmDiags command. By default, the location list window is opened to the bottom of the current window and its height is set to fit all entries. This behavior can be overridden by using the YcmLocationOpened autocommand which is triggered while the cursor is in the location list window. For instance:

function! s:CustomizeYcmLocationWindow()
  " Move the window to the top of the screen.
  wincmd K
  " Set the window height to 5.
  5wincmd _
  " Switch back to working window.
  wincmd p
endfunction

autocmd User YcmLocationOpened call s:CustomizeYcmLocationWindow()

The YcmQuickFixOpened autocommand

This User autocommand is fired when YCM opens the quickfix window in response to the GoTo* and RefactorRename subcommands. By default, the quickfix window is opened to full width at the bottom of the screen and its height is set to fit all entries. This behavior can be overridden by using the YcmQuickFixOpened autocommand which is triggered while the cursor is in the quickfix window. For instance:

function! s:CustomizeYcmQuickFixWindow()
  " Move the window to the top of the screen.
  wincmd K
  " Set the window height to 5.
  5wincmd _
endfunction

autocmd User YcmQuickFixOpened call s:CustomizeYcmQuickFixWindow()

Options

All options have reasonable defaults so if the plug-in works after installation you don't need to change any options. These options can be configured in your vimrc script by including a line like this:

let g:ycm_min_num_of_chars_for_completion = 1

Note that after changing an option in your vimrc script you have to restart ycmd with the :YcmRestartServer command for the changes to take effect.

The g:ycm_min_num_of_chars_for_completion option

This option controls the number of characters the user needs to type before identifier-based completion suggestions are triggered. For example, if the option is set to 2, then when the user types a second alphanumeric character after a whitespace character, completion suggestions will be triggered. This option is NOT used for semantic completion.

Setting this option to a high number like 99 effectively turns off the identifier completion engine and just leaves the semantic engine.

Default: 2

let g:ycm_min_num_of_chars_for_completion = 2

The g:ycm_min_num_identifier_candidate_chars option

This option controls the minimum number of characters that a completion candidate coming from the identifier completer must have to be shown in the popup menu.

A special value of 0 means there is no limit.

NOTE: This option only applies to the identifier completer; it has no effect on the various semantic completers.

Default: 0

let g:ycm_min_num_identifier_candidate_chars = 0

The g:ycm_max_num_candidates option

This option controls the maximum number of semantic completion suggestions shown in the completion menu. This only applies to suggestions from semantic completion engines; see the g:ycm_max_identifier_candidates option to limit the number of suggestions from the identifier-based engine.

A special value of 0 means there is no limit.

NOTE: Setting this option to 0 or to a value greater than 100 is not recommended as it will slow down completion when there are a very large number of suggestions.

Default: 50

let g:ycm_max_num_candidates = 50

The g:ycm_max_num_candidates_to_detail option

Some completion engines require completion candidates to be 'resolved' in order to get detailed info such as inline documentation, method signatures etc. This information is displayed by YCM in the preview window, or if completeopt contains popup, in the info popup next to the completion menu.

By deafult, if the info popup is in use, and there are more than 10 candidates, YCM will defer resolving candidates until they are selected in the completion menu. Otherwise, YCM must resolve the details upfront, which can be costly.

If neither popup nor preview are in completeopt, YCM disables resolving altogether as the information would not be displayed.

This setting can be used to override these defaults and controls the number of completion candidates that should be resolved upfront. Typically users do not need to change this, as YCM will work out an appropriate value based on your completeopt and g:ycm_add_preview_to_completeopt settings. Howver, you may override this calculation by setting this value to a number:

  • -1 - Resolve all candidates up front
  • 0 - Never resolve any candidates up front.
  • > 0 - Resolve up to this many candidates up front. If the number of candidates is greater than this value, no candidates are resolved.

In the later two cases, if completeopt contains popup, then candidates are resolved on demand asynchronously.

Default:

  • 0 if neither popup nor preview are in completeopt.
  • 10 if popup is in completeopt.
  • -1 if preview is in completeopt.

Example:

let g:ycm_max_num_candidates_to_detail = 0

The g:ycm_max_num_identifier_candidates option

This option controls the maximum number of completion suggestions from the identifier-based engine shown in the completion menu.

A special value of 0 means there is no limit.

NOTE: Setting this option to 0 or to a value greater than 100 is not recommended as it will slow down completion when there are a very large number of suggestions.

Default: 10

let g:ycm_max_num_identifier_candidates = 10

The g:ycm_auto_trigger option

When set to 0, this option turns off YCM's identifier completer (the as-you-type popup) and the semantic triggers (the popup you'd get after typing . or -> in say C++). You can still force semantic completion with the <C-Space> shortcut.

If you want to just turn off the identifier completer but keep the semantic triggers, you should set g:ycm_min_num_of_chars_for_completion to a high number like 99.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_auto_trigger = 1

The g:ycm_filetype_whitelist option

This option controls for which Vim filetypes (see :h filetype) should YCM be turned on. The option value should be a Vim dictionary with keys being filetype strings (like python, cpp, etc.) and values being unimportant (the dictionary is used like a hash set, meaning that only the keys matter).

The * key is special and matches all filetypes. By default, the whitelist contains only this * key.

YCM also has a g:ycm_filetype_blacklist option that lists filetypes for which YCM shouldn't be turned on. YCM will work only in filetypes that both the whitelist and the blacklist allow (the blacklist "allows" a filetype by not having it as a key).

For example, let's assume you want YCM to work in files with the cpp filetype. The filetype should then be present in the whitelist either directly (cpp key in the whitelist) or indirectly through the special * key. It should not be present in the blacklist.

Filetypes that are blocked by the either of the lists will be completely ignored by YCM, meaning that neither the identifier-based completion engine nor the semantic engine will operate in them.

You can get the filetype of the current file in Vim with :set ft?.

Default: {'*': 1}

let g:ycm_filetype_whitelist = {'*': 1}

** Completion in buffers with no filetype **

There is one exception to the above rule. YCM supports completion in buffers with no filetype set, but this must be explicitly whitelisted. To identify buffers with no filetype, we use the ycm_nofiletype pseudo-filetype. To enable completion in buffers with no filetype, set:

let g:ycm_filetype_whitelist = {
  \ '*': 1,
  \ 'ycm_nofiletype': 1
  \ }

The g:ycm_filetype_blacklist option

This option controls for which Vim filetypes (see :h filetype) should YCM be turned off. The option value should be a Vim dictionary with keys being filetype strings (like python, cpp, etc.) and values being unimportant (the dictionary is used like a hash set, meaning that only the keys matter).

See the g:ycm_filetype_whitelist option for more details on how this works.

Default: [see next line]

let g:ycm_filetype_blacklist = {
      \ 'tagbar': 1,
      \ 'notes': 1,
      \ 'markdown': 1,
      \ 'netrw': 1,
      \ 'unite': 1,
      \ 'text': 1,
      \ 'vimwiki': 1,
      \ 'pandoc': 1,
      \ 'infolog': 1,
      \ 'leaderf': 1,
      \ 'mail': 1
      \}

In addition, ycm_nofiletype (representing buffers with no filetype set) is blacklisted if ycm_nofiletype is not explicitly whitelisted (using g:ycm_filetype_whitelist).

The g:ycm_filetype_specific_completion_to_disable option

This option controls for which Vim filetypes (see :h filetype) should the YCM semantic completion engine be turned off. The option value should be a Vim dictionary with keys being filetype strings (like python, cpp, etc.) and values being unimportant (the dictionary is used like a hash set, meaning that only the keys matter). The listed filetypes will be ignored by the YCM semantic completion engine, but the identifier-based completion engine will still trigger in files of those filetypes.

Note that even if semantic completion is not turned off for a specific filetype, you will not get semantic completion if the semantic engine does not support that filetype.

You can get the filetype of the current file in Vim with :set ft?.

Default: [see next line]

let g:ycm_filetype_specific_completion_to_disable = {
      \ 'gitcommit': 1
      \}

The g:ycm_filepath_blacklist option

This option controls for which Vim filetypes (see :h filetype) should filepath completion be disabled. The option value should be a Vim dictionary with keys being filetype strings (like python, cpp, etc.) and values being unimportant (the dictionary is used like a hash set, meaning that only the keys matter).

The * key is special and matches all filetypes. Use this key if you want to completely disable filepath completion:

let g:ycm_filepath_blacklist = {'*': 1}

You can get the filetype of the current file in Vim with :set ft?.

Default: [see next line]

let g:ycm_filepath_blacklist = {
      \ 'html': 1,
      \ 'jsx': 1,
      \ 'xml': 1,
      \}

The g:ycm_show_diagnostics_ui option

When set, this option turns on YCM's diagnostic display features. See the Diagnostic display section in the User Manual for more details.

Specific parts of the diagnostics UI (like the gutter signs, text highlighting, diagnostic echo and auto location list population) can be individually turned on or off. See the other options below for details.

Note that YCM's diagnostics UI is only supported for C-family languages.

When set, this option also makes YCM remove all Syntastic checkers set for the c, cpp, objc, objcpp, and cuda filetypes since this would conflict with YCM's own diagnostics UI.

If you're using YCM's identifier completer in C-family languages but cannot use the clang-based semantic completer for those languages and want to use the GCC Syntastic checkers, unset this option.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_show_diagnostics_ui = 1

The g:ycm_error_symbol option

YCM will use the value of this option as the symbol for errors in the Vim gutter.

This option is part of the Syntastic compatibility layer; if the option is not set, YCM will fall back to the value of the g:syntastic_error_symbol option before using this option's default.

Default: >>

let g:ycm_error_symbol = '>>'

The g:ycm_warning_symbol option

YCM will use the value of this option as the symbol for warnings in the Vim gutter.

This option is part of the Syntastic compatibility layer; if the option is not set, YCM will fall back to the value of the g:syntastic_warning_symbol option before using this option's default.

Default: >>

let g:ycm_warning_symbol = '>>'

The g:ycm_enable_diagnostic_signs option

When this option is set, YCM will put icons in Vim's gutter on lines that have a diagnostic set. Turning this off will also turn off the YcmErrorLine and YcmWarningLine highlighting.

This option is part of the Syntastic compatibility layer; if the option is not set, YCM will fall back to the value of the g:syntastic_enable_signs option before using this option's default.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_enable_diagnostic_signs = 1

The g:ycm_enable_diagnostic_highlighting option

When this option is set, YCM will highlight regions of text that are related to the diagnostic that is present on a line, if any.

This option is part of the Syntastic compatibility layer; if the option is not set, YCM will fall back to the value of the g:syntastic_enable_highlighting option before using this option's default.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_enable_diagnostic_highlighting = 1

The g:ycm_echo_current_diagnostic option

When this option is set, YCM will echo the text of the diagnostic present on the current line when you move your cursor to that line. If a FixIt is available for the current diagnostic, then (FixIt) is appended.

This option is part of the Syntastic compatibility layer; if the option is not set, YCM will fall back to the value of the g:syntastic_echo_current_error option before using this option's default.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_echo_current_diagnostic = 1

The g:ycm_auto_hover option

This option controls whether or not YCM shows documentation in a popup at the cursor location after a short delay. Only supported in Vim.

When this option is set to 'CursorHold', the popup is displayed on the CursorHold autocommand. See :help CursorHold for the details, but this means that it is displayed after updatetime milliseconds. When set to an empty string, the popup is not automatically displayed.

In addition to this setting, there is the <plug>(YCMHover) mapping, which can be used to manually trigger or hide the popup (it works like a toggle). For example:

nmap <leader>D <plug>(YCMHover)

After dismissing the popup with this mapping, it will not be automatically triggered again until the cursor is moved (i.e. CursorMoved autocommand).

The displayed documentation depends on what the completer for the current language supports. It's selected heuristically in this order of preference:

  1. GetHover with markdown syntax
  2. GetDoc with no syntax
  3. GetType with the syntax of the current file.

You can customise this by manually setting up b:ycm_hover to your liking. This buffer-local variable can be set to a dictionary with the following keys:

  • command: The YCM completer subcommand which should be run on hover
  • syntax: The syntax to use (as in set syntax=) in the popup window for highlighting.

For example, to use C/C++ syntax highlighting in the popup for C-family languages, add something like this to your vimrc:

augroup MyYCMCustom
  autocmd!
  autocmd FileType c,cpp let b:ycm_hover = {
    \ 'command': 'GetDoc',
    \ 'syntax': &filetype
    \ }
augroup END

Default: 'CursorHold'

The g:ycm_filter_diagnostics option

This option controls which diagnostics will be rendered by YCM. This option holds a dictionary of key-values, where the keys are Vim's filetype strings delimited by commas and values are dictionaries describing the filter.

A filter is a dictionary of key-values, where the keys are the type of filter, and the value is a list of arguments to that filter. In the case of just a single item in the list, you may omit the brackets and just provide the argument directly. If any filter matches a diagnostic, it will be dropped and YCM will not render it.

The following filter types are supported:

  • "regex": Accepts a string regular expression. This type matches when the regex (treated as case-insensitive) is found anywhere in the diagnostic text (re.search, not re.match)
  • "level": Accepts a string level, either "warning" or "error." This type matches when the diagnostic has the same level, that is, specifying level: "error" will remove all errors from the diagnostics.

NOTE: The regex syntax is NOT Vim's, it's Python's.

Default: {}

The following example will do, for java filetype only:

  • Remove all error level diagnostics, and,
  • Also remove anything that contains ta<something>co
let g:ycm_filter_diagnostics = {
  \ "java": {
  \      "regex": [ "ta.+co", ... ],
  \      "level": "error",
  \      ...
  \    }
  \ }

The g:ycm_always_populate_location_list option

When this option is set, YCM will populate the location list automatically every time it gets new diagnostic data. This option is off by default so as not to interfere with other data you might have placed in the location list.

See :help location-list in Vim to learn more about the location list.

This option is part of the Syntastic compatibility layer; if the option is not set, YCM will fall back to the value of the g:syntastic_always_populate_loc_list option before using this option's default.

Default: 0

let g:ycm_always_populate_location_list = 0

The g:ycm_open_loclist_on_ycm_diags option

When this option is set, :YcmDiags will automatically open the location list after forcing a compilation and filling the list with diagnostic data.

See :help location-list in Vim to learn more about the location list.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_open_loclist_on_ycm_diags = 1

The g:ycm_complete_in_comments option

When this option is set to 1, YCM will show the completion menu even when typing inside comments.

Default: 0

let g:ycm_complete_in_comments = 0

The g:ycm_complete_in_strings option

When this option is set to 1, YCM will show the completion menu even when typing inside strings.

Note that this is turned on by default so that you can use the filename completion inside strings. This is very useful for instance in C-family files where typing #include " will trigger the start of filename completion. If you turn off this option, you will turn off filename completion in such situations as well.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_complete_in_strings = 1

The g:ycm_collect_identifiers_from_comments_and_strings option

When this option is set to 1, YCM's identifier completer will also collect identifiers from strings and comments. Otherwise, the text in comments and strings will be ignored.

Default: 0

let g:ycm_collect_identifiers_from_comments_and_strings = 0

The g:ycm_collect_identifiers_from_tags_files option

When this option is set to 1, YCM's identifier completer will also collect identifiers from tags files. The list of tags files to examine is retrieved from the tagfiles() Vim function which examines the tags Vim option. See :h 'tags' for details.

YCM will re-index your tags files if it detects that they have been modified.

The only supported tag format is the Exuberant Ctags format. The format from "plain" ctags is NOT supported. Ctags needs to be called with the --fields=+l option (that's a lowercase L, not a one) because YCM needs the language:<lang> field in the tags output.

See the FAQ for pointers if YCM does not appear to read your tag files.

This option is off by default because it makes Vim slower if your tags are on a network directory.

Default: 0

let g:ycm_collect_identifiers_from_tags_files = 0

The g:ycm_seed_identifiers_with_syntax option

When this option is set to 1, YCM's identifier completer will seed its identifier database with the keywords of the programming language you're writing.

Since the keywords are extracted from the Vim syntax file for the filetype, all keywords may not be collected, depending on how the syntax file was written. Usually at least 95% of the keywords are successfully extracted.

Default: 0

let g:ycm_seed_identifiers_with_syntax = 0

The g:ycm_extra_conf_vim_data option

If you're using semantic completion for C-family files, this option might come handy; it's a way of sending data from Vim to your Settings function in your .ycm_extra_conf.py file.

This option is supposed to be a list of VimScript expression strings that are evaluated for every request to the ycmd server and then passed to your Settings function as a client_data keyword argument.

For instance, if you set this option to ['v:version'], your Settings function will be called like this:

# The '801' value is of course contingent on Vim 8.1; in 8.0 it would be '800'
Settings( ..., client_data = { 'v:version': 801 } )

So the client_data parameter is a dictionary mapping Vim expression strings to their values at the time of the request.

The correct way to define parameters for your Settings function:

def Settings( **kwargs ):

You can then get to client_data with kwargs['client_data'].

Default: []

let g:ycm_extra_conf_vim_data = []

The g:ycm_server_python_interpreter option

YCM will by default search for an appropriate Python interpreter on your system. You can use this option to override that behavior and force the use of a specific interpreter of your choosing.

NOTE: This interpreter is only used for the ycmd server. The YCM client running inside Vim always uses the Python interpreter that's embedded inside Vim.

Default: ''

let g:ycm_server_python_interpreter = ''

The g:ycm_keep_logfiles option

When this option is set to 1, YCM and the ycmd completion server will keep the logfiles around after shutting down (they are deleted on shutdown by default).

To see where the logfiles are, call :YcmDebugInfo.

Default: 0

let g:ycm_keep_logfiles = 0

The g:ycm_log_level option

The logging level that YCM and the ycmd completion server use. Valid values are the following, from most verbose to least verbose:

  • debug
  • info
  • warning
  • error
  • critical

Note that debug is very verbose.

Default: info

let g:ycm_log_level = 'info'

The g:ycm_auto_start_csharp_server option

When set to 1, the OmniSharp-Roslyn server will be automatically started (once per Vim session) when you open a C# file.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_auto_start_csharp_server = 1

The g:ycm_auto_stop_csharp_server option

When set to 1, the OmniSharp-Roslyn server will be automatically stopped upon closing Vim.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_auto_stop_csharp_server = 1

The g:ycm_csharp_server_port option

When g:ycm_auto_start_csharp_server is set to 1, specifies the port for the OmniSharp-Roslyn server to listen on. When set to 0 uses an unused port provided by the OS.

Default: 0

let g:ycm_csharp_server_port = 0

The g:ycm_csharp_insert_namespace_expr option

By default, when YCM inserts a namespace, it will insert the using statement under the nearest using statement. You may prefer that the using statement is inserted somewhere, for example, to preserve sorting. If so, you can set this option to override this behavior.

When this option is set, instead of inserting the using statement itself, YCM will set the global variable g:ycm_namespace_to_insert to the namespace to insert, and then evaluate this option's value as an expression. The option's expression is responsible for inserting the namespace - the default insertion will not occur.

Default: ''

let g:ycm_csharp_insert_namespace_expr = ''

The g:ycm_add_preview_to_completeopt option

When this option is set to 1, YCM will add the preview string to Vim's completeopt option (see :h completeopt). If your completeopt option already has preview set, there will be no effect. Alternatively, when set to popup and your version of Vim supports popup windows (see :help popup), the popup string will be used instead. You can see the current state of your completeopt setting with :set completeopt? (yes, the question mark is important).

When preview is present in completeopt, YCM will use the preview window at the top of the file to store detailed information about the current completion candidate (but only if the candidate came from the semantic engine). For instance, it would show the full function prototype and all the function overloads in the window if the current completion is a function name.

When popup is present in completeopt, YCM will instead use a popup window to the side of the completion popup for storing detailed information about the current completion candidate. In addition, YCM may truncate the detailed completion information in order to give the popup sufficient room to display that detailed information.

Default: 0

let g:ycm_add_preview_to_completeopt = 0

The g:ycm_autoclose_preview_window_after_completion option

When this option is set to 1, YCM will auto-close the preview window after the user accepts the offered completion string. If there is no preview window triggered because there is no preview string in completeopt, this option is irrelevant. See the g:ycm_add_preview_to_completeopt option for more details.

Default: 0

let g:ycm_autoclose_preview_window_after_completion = 0

The g:ycm_autoclose_preview_window_after_insertion option

When this option is set to 1, YCM will auto-close the preview window after the user leaves insert mode. This option is irrelevant if g:ycm_autoclose_preview_window_after_completion is set or if no preview window is triggered. See the g:ycm_add_preview_to_completeopt option for more details.

Default: 0

let g:ycm_autoclose_preview_window_after_insertion = 0

The g:ycm_max_diagnostics_to_display option

This option controls the maximum number of diagnostics shown to the user when errors or warnings are detected in the file. This option is only relevant for the C-family, C#, Java, JavaScript, and TypeScript languages.

A special value of 0 means there is no limit.

Default: 30

let g:ycm_max_diagnostics_to_display = 30

The g:ycm_key_list_select_completion option

This option controls the key mappings used to select the first completion string. Invoking any of them repeatedly cycles forward through the completion list.

Some users like adding <Enter> to this list.

Default: ['<TAB>', '<Down>']

let g:ycm_key_list_select_completion = ['<TAB>', '<Down>']

The g:ycm_key_list_previous_completion option

This option controls the key mappings used to select the previous completion string. Invoking any of them repeatedly cycles backwards through the completion list.

Note that one of the defaults is <S-TAB> which means Shift-TAB. That mapping will probably only work in GUI Vim (Gvim or MacVim) and not in plain console Vim because the terminal usually does not forward modifier key combinations to Vim.

Default: ['<S-TAB>', '<Up>']

let g:ycm_key_list_previous_completion = ['<S-TAB>', '<Up>']

The g:ycm_key_list_stop_completion option

This option controls the key mappings used to close the completion menu. This is useful when the menu is blocking the view, when you need to insert the <TAB> character, or when you want to expand a snippet from UltiSnips and navigate through it.

Default: ['<C-y>']

let g:ycm_key_list_stop_completion = ['<C-y>']

The g:ycm_key_invoke_completion option

This option controls the key mapping used to invoke the completion menu for semantic completion. By default, semantic completion is triggered automatically after typing ., -> and :: in insert mode (if semantic completion support has been compiled in). This key mapping can be used to trigger semantic completion anywhere. Useful for searching for top-level functions and classes.

Console Vim (not Gvim or MacVim) passes <Nul> to Vim when the user types <C-Space> so YCM will make sure that <Nul> is used in the map command when you're editing in console Vim, and <C-Space> in GUI Vim. This means that you can just press <C-Space> in both console and GUI Vim and YCM will do the right thing.

Setting this option to an empty string will make sure no mapping is created.

Default: <C-Space>

let g:ycm_key_invoke_completion = '<C-Space>'

The g:ycm_key_detailed_diagnostics option

This option controls the key mapping used to show the full diagnostic text when the user's cursor is on the line with the diagnostic. It basically calls :YcmShowDetailedDiagnostic.

Setting this option to an empty string will make sure no mapping is created.

Default: <leader>d

let g:ycm_key_detailed_diagnostics = '<leader>d'

The g:ycm_global_ycm_extra_conf option

Normally, YCM searches for a .ycm_extra_conf.py file for compilation flags (see the User Guide for more details on how this works). This option specifies a fallback path to a config file which is used if no .ycm_extra_conf.py is found.

You can place such a global file anywhere in your filesystem.

Default: ''

let g:ycm_global_ycm_extra_conf = ''

The g:ycm_confirm_extra_conf option

When this option is set to 1 YCM will ask once per .ycm_extra_conf.py file if it is safe to be loaded. This is to prevent execution of malicious code from a .ycm_extra_conf.py file you didn't write.

To selectively get YCM to ask/not ask about loading certain .ycm_extra_conf.py files, see the g:ycm_extra_conf_globlist option.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_confirm_extra_conf = 1

The g:ycm_extra_conf_globlist option

This option is a list that may contain several globbing patterns. If a pattern starts with a ! all .ycm_extra_conf.py files matching that pattern will be blacklisted, that is they won't be loaded and no confirmation dialog will be shown. If a pattern does not start with a ! all files matching that pattern will be whitelisted. Note that this option is not used when confirmation is disabled using g:ycm_confirm_extra_conf and that items earlier in the list will take precedence over the later ones.

Rules:

  • * matches everything
  • ? matches any single character
  • [seq] matches any character in seq
  • [!seq] matches any char not in seq

Example:

let g:ycm_extra_conf_globlist = ['~/dev/*','!~/*']
  • The first rule will match everything contained in the ~/dev directory so .ycm_extra_conf.py files from there will be loaded.
  • The second rule will match everything in the home directory so a .ycm_extra_conf.py file from there won't be loaded.
  • As the first rule takes precedence everything in the home directory excluding the ~/dev directory will be blacklisted.

NOTE: The glob pattern is first expanded with Python's os.path.expanduser() and then resolved with os.path.abspath() before being matched against the filename.

Default: []

let g:ycm_extra_conf_globlist = []

The g:ycm_filepath_completion_use_working_dir option

By default, YCM's filepath completion will interpret relative paths like ../ as being relative to the folder of the file of the currently active buffer. Setting this option will force YCM to always interpret relative paths as being relative to Vim's current working directory.

Default: 0

let g:ycm_filepath_completion_use_working_dir = 0

The g:ycm_semantic_triggers option

This option controls the character-based triggers for the various semantic completion engines. The option holds a dictionary of key-values, where the keys are Vim's filetype strings delimited by commas and values are lists of strings, where the strings are the triggers.

Setting key-value pairs on the dictionary adds semantic triggers to the internal default set (listed below). You cannot remove the default triggers, only add new ones.

A "trigger" is a sequence of one or more characters that trigger semantic completion when typed. For instance, C++ (cpp filetype) has . listed as a trigger. So when the user types foo., the semantic engine will trigger and serve foo's list of member functions and variables. Since C++ also has -> listed as a trigger, the same thing would happen when the user typed foo->.

It's also possible to use a regular expression as a trigger. You have to prefix your trigger with re! to signify it's a regex trigger. For instance, re!\w+\. would only trigger after the \w+\. regex matches.

NOTE: The regex syntax is NOT Vim's, it's Python's.

Default: [see next line]

let g:ycm_semantic_triggers =  {
  \   'c': ['->', '.'],
  \   'objc': ['->', '.', 're!\[[_a-zA-Z]+\w*\s', 're!^\s*[^\W\d]\w*\s',
  \            're!\[.*\]\s'],
  \   'ocaml': ['.', '#'],
  \   'cpp,cuda,objcpp': ['->', '.', '::'],
  \   'perl': ['->'],
  \   'php': ['->', '::'],
  \   'cs,d,elixir,go,groovy,java,javascript,julia,perl6,python,scala,typescript,vb': ['.'],
  \   'ruby,rust': ['.', '::'],
  \   'lua': ['.', ':'],
  \   'erlang': [':'],
  \ }

The g:ycm_cache_omnifunc option

Some omnicompletion engines do not work well with the YCM cache—in particular, they might not produce all possible results for a given prefix. By unsetting this option you can ensure that the omnicompletion engine is re-queried on every keypress. That will ensure all completions will be presented, but might cause stuttering and lagginess if the omnifunc is slow.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_cache_omnifunc = 1

The g:ycm_use_ultisnips_completer option

By default, YCM will query the UltiSnips plugin for possible completions of snippet triggers. This option can turn that behavior off.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_use_ultisnips_completer = 1

The g:ycm_goto_buffer_command option

Defines where GoTo* commands result should be opened. Can take one of the following values: 'same-buffer', 'split', or 'split-or-existing-window'. If this option is set to the 'same-buffer' but current buffer can not be switched (when buffer is modified and nohidden option is set), then result will be opened in a split. When the option is set to 'split-or-existing-window', if the result is already open in a window of the current tab page (or any tab pages with the :tab modifier; see below), it will jump to that window. Otherwise, the result will be opened in a split as if the option was set to 'split'.

To customize the way a new window is split, prefix the GoTo* command with one of the following modifiers: :aboveleft, :belowright, :botright, :leftabove, :rightbelow, :topleft, and :vertical. For instance, to split vertically to the right of the current window, run the command:

:rightbelow vertical YcmCompleter GoTo

To open in a new tab page, use the :tab modifier with the 'split' or 'split-or-existing-window' options e.g.:

:tab YcmCompleter GoTo

NOTE: command modifiers were added in Vim 7.4.1898. If you are using an older version, you can still configure this by setting the option to one of the deprecated values: 'vertical-split', 'new-tab', or 'new-or-existing-tab'.

Default: 'same-buffer'

let g:ycm_goto_buffer_command = 'same-buffer'

The g:ycm_disable_for_files_larger_than_kb option

Defines the max size (in Kb) for a file to be considered for completion. If this option is set to 0 then no check is made on the size of the file you're opening.

Default: 1000

let g:ycm_disable_for_files_larger_than_kb = 1000

The g:ycm_use_clangd option

This option controls whether clangd should be used as completion engine for C-family languages. Can take one of the following values: 1, 0, with meanings:

  • 1: YCM will use clangd if clangd binary exists in third party or it was provided with ycm_clangd_binary_path option.
  • 0: YCM will never use clangd completer.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_use_clangd = 1

The g:ycm_clangd_binary_path option

When ycm_use_clangd option is set to 1, this option sets the path to clangd binary.

Default: ''

let g:ycm_clangd_binary_path = ''

The g:ycm_clangd_args option

This option controls the command line arguments passed to the clangd binary. It appends new options and overrides the existing ones.

Default: []

let g:ycm_clangd_args = []

The g:ycm_clangd_uses_ycmd_caching option

This option controls which ranking and filtering algorithm to use for completion items. It can take values:

  • 1: Uses ycmd's caching and filtering logic.
  • 0: Uses clangd's caching and filtering logic.

Default: 1

let g:ycm_clangd_uses_ycmd_caching = 1

The g:ycm_language_server option

This option lets YCM use an arbitrary LSP server, not unlike coc.nvim and others. However, the officially supported completers are favoured over custom LSP ones, so overriding an existing completer means first making sure YCM won't choose that existing completer in the first place.

A simple working example of this option can be found in the section called "Semantic Completion for Other Languages".

Default: []

let g:ycm_language_server = []

The g:ycm_disable_signature_help option

This option allows you to disable all signature help for all completion engines. There is no way to disable it per-completer. This option is reserved, meaning that while signature help support remains experimental, its values and meaning may change and it may be removed in a future version.

Default: 0

" Disable signature help
let g:ycm_disable_signature_help = 1

The g:ycm_gopls_binary_path option

In case the system-wide gopls binary is newer than the bundled one, setting this option to the path of the system-wide gopls would make YCM use that one instead.

If the path is just gopls, YCM will search in $PATH.

The g:ycm_gopls_args option

Similar to the g:ycm_clangd_args, this option allows passing additional flags to the gopls command line.

Default: []

let g:ycm_gopls_args = []

The g:ycm_rls_binary_path and g:ycm_rustc_binary_path options

YCM no longer uses RLS for rust, and these options are therefore no longer supported.

To use a custom rust-analyzer, see g:ycm_rust_toolchain_root.

The g:ycm_rust_toolchain_root option

Optionally specify the path to a custom rust toolchain including at least a supported version of rust-analyzer.

The g:ycm_tsserver_binary_path option

Similar to the gopls path, this option tells YCM where is the TSServer executable located.

The g:ycm_roslyn_binary_path option

Similar to the gopls path, this option tells YCM where is the Omnisharp-Roslyn executable located.

  • Implement argument completion/hints

    Implement argument completion/hints

    int foo(int a, int b, int c);
    void bar(int a, int b);
    
    bar(foo(1, 2, 3), 42);
    // bar<ctrl-space> + selection brings bar's prototype into preview window:
    // int bar(int a, int b);
    // foo<ctrl-space> + selection brings foo's prototype into preview window, destroying previous bar completion context.
    // now to fill out the remaining bar parameters after the first one, I must recall them.
    

    clang_complete completion mechanism (+ supertab) is much nicer than this:

    int foo(int a, int b, int c);
    void bar(int a, int b);
    
    bar(foo(1, 2, 3), 42);
    // bar<tab> + selection *inserts* bar's call into code with traversable parameters:
    // bar(<#int a#>, <#int b#>)
    // foo<tab> + selection *inserts* foo's call into code with traversable parameters:
    // bar(foo(<#int a#>, <#int b#>, <#int c#>), <#int b#>)
    // to cycle between parameters you just go to normal mode and press tab. Then, you can just start typing to automatically enter insert mode, overwriting the selected one.
    // this way, you never lose completion context for nested completions.
    // there's an option to hide the characters used to surround the parameters using VIM's conceal feature, so <# and #> may not even clutter the view.
    

    This video (at time 2m30s) illustrates how this parameter completion works.

    And this is a GIF from a fork that patches YCM to provide this:

    param completion

    I guess this behavior turns the extra preview window popup completely unnecessary, and hence, discarding it provides yet one more feature: less interface cluttering. So it's both cleaner and more powerful.

    I'm willing to switch to YCM, but still, without this, I feel it doesn't obsoletes clang_complete. It's the single thing that I very miss.

    This is the clang_complete/supertab config for that:

    set conceallevel=2
    set concealcursor=vin
    let g:clang_snippets=1
    let g:clang_conceal_snippets=1
    let g:clang_snippets_engine='clang_complete'
    
    " Complete options (disable preview scratch window, longest removed to aways show menu)
    set completeopt=menu,menuone
    
    " Limit popup menu height
    set pumheight=20
    
    " SuperTab completion fall-back 
    let g:SuperTabDefaultCompletionType='<c-x><c-u><c-p>'

    Usage of conceal is explained at clang_complete docs.

    [READY] Bumps required Vim to 7.4.143 and adopts TextChangedI.

    Long and personal experience, when TextChangedI gets used, YCM seems to perform better, diagnostics will trigger much less frequently at inappropriate occasions, even less with whitespace agnostic triggers, if I recall correctly...

    There's a previous discussion at #1337. At the time this change was bundled in a single pull request with other changes.

    It has gone through the test of the time, sole issue I've stumbled upon was reported by @puremourning at https://github.com/oblitum/YouCompleteMe/issues/10. This is what me and other users of my fork use daily.

  • [READY] Support FixIt and Refactor commands across multiple files

    [READY] Support FixIt and Refactor commands across multiple files

    Apply FixIt chunks across files

    Previously, FixIts could only apply to the current buffer. Now we can apply FixIts across files, even if they are not currently open in the user's Vim. We obey existing configuration about how/where to open new files and apply changes in such a way as to not scribble the user's filesystem, and allow full undo history, like existing FixIt commands. Vim's python API actually makes this really quite easy.

    To achieve this, we sort the chunks by filename, apply the existing logic unchanged. The only difference is that ReplaceChunk no longer implicitly assumes it applies to vim.current.buffer.

    Recognise 'FixIt' responses for any subcommand

    Previously, we used the subcommand name to determine the type of response to expect. This coupled the client and the server and didn't allow us to apply FixIts for a "Refactor" command, or "GoTo" for a, theoretical "Find" command.

    Now 'GoTo' and 'FixIt' commands don't need to start with those prefixes. For 'FixIt' we can detect the response type by looking for the 'fixits' entry in the response.

    Other changes

    The vimsupport.OpenFilename method needed to handle the presence of Vim swap files and the various user responses. This pushed the cyclomatic complexity over the threshold, so the code was partially obfuscated to accommodate the cyclomatic complexity gods.

  • Using default .ycm_extra_conf.py, the standard c++11 headers are not found.

    Using default .ycm_extra_conf.py, the standard c++11 headers are not found.

    I set g:ycm_global_ycm_extra_conf in my vimrc.

  • YCM killing my vim with GoLang

    YCM killing my vim with GoLang

    Since a couple of days, YCM started to use 99% CPU when using it with Go. I've disabled Syntastic but there is no change. There is any way to make it compile only when saving?

    YCM not showing snippets

    I'm using spf13 with vim 7.4. vim-snippets and UltiSnips are both installed(with Vundle) and I can see them in my .vim /bundles directory. When I start typing YCM only shows me completions from the file (I tested it under Ruby and Python files). However,when I type class and press <C-j> Vim will complete the block.

    When I enter :YcmCompleter in VIM, It gives me an error:

    ValueError: No semantic completer exists for filetypes: [u'ruby']
    

    Here is my :version:

  • Objective-C multiple argument issues

    Objective-C multiple argument issues

    In Objective-C is commonplace for method calls to look like this:

    [object method:firstArg moreMethod:secondArg];
    

    The entire method name in this case would be method:moreMethod: where there are 2 named arguments interspersed within the name.

    YCM does not complete these correctly. When you try to complete something like:

    [NSSortDescriptor sortDescriptorWithKey:@"somestring" ascending:YES]
    

    YCM only completes the ascending portion of the method name. It looks like this:

    screen shot 2014-10-23 at 1 02 55 pm

    It should be inserting both portions of the method. This works in clang_complete and looks like this ((NSString *) and (BOOL) are the argument's placeholders):

    screen shot 2014-10-23 at 2 00 29 pm

    This was the basis for https://github.com/Valloric/YouCompleteMe/issues/84 but that turned in to a different issue about when Objective-C completions should start.

    Show balloon hovers instead of cursorhold hovers

    PR Prelude

    Thank you for working on YCM! :)

    Please complete these steps and check these boxes (by putting an x inside the brackets) before filing your PR:

    • [x] I have read and understood YCM's [CONTRIBUTING][cont] document.
    • [x] I have read and understood YCM's [CODE_OF_CONDUCT][code] document.
    • [x] I have included tests for the changes in my PR. If not, I have included a rationale for why I haven't.
    • [x] I understand my PR may be closed if it becomes obvious I didn't actually perform all of these steps.

    Why this change is necessary and useful

    This PR is based on my previous one. The cursorhold hovers seem quite annoying, so I think we should use balloon hovers instead, just like VSCode. This needs quite a lot of changes.

    The changes are listed as follows

    1. line 1717: the youcompleteme#hover() function is used for balloonexpr. I use win_execute() here to ensure the s:Hover() function to be executed in the buffer/window where the mouse pointer is, since the mouse pointer and the vim cursor can be in different buffers/windows.
    function! youcompleteme#hover()
      call win_execute( v:beval_winid, 'call s:Hover()' )
      return ''
    endfunction
    
    1. line 711: use set ballooneval/balloonevalterm/balloonexpr to enable/disable auto hover.
    function! s:EnableAutoHover()
      if s:enable_hover
        set ballooneval
        set balloonevalterm
        set balloonexpr=youcompleteme#hover()
      endif
    endfunction
    
    
    function! s:DisableAutoHover()
      call popup_clear()
      set noballooneval
      set noballoonevalterm
    endfunction
    
    1. line 1587: use if exists( '*popup_beval' ) to judge whether the feature is available.

    2. line 1620: add some arguments to b:ycm_hover.command. The s:Hover() function is called by call win_execute( v:beval_winid, 'call s:Hover()' ), so theb:ycm_hover variable is related to the buffer/window where the mouse pointer is and the command is executed at the mouse pointer.

    call youcompleteme#GetCommandResponseAsync(
          \ function( 's:ShowHoverResult' ),
          \ b:ycm_hover.command,
          \ '--bufnr=' . v:beval_bufnr,
          \ '--line_num=' . v:beval_lnum,
          \ '--column_num=' . v:beval_col )
    
    1. the hover popup

    line 1640: use strdisplaywidth() instead of len(). This fixes the problem of multi-byte characters the author mentioned here.

    " Find the longest line (FIXME: probably doesn't work well for multi-byte)
    let lines = split( a:response, "\n" )
    let len = max( map( copy( lines ), "strdisplaywidth( v:val )" ) )
    

    line 1644: some parameters of the popup. border: I add a one-cell-wide border to the popup to make it more conspicuous.

    let border = { 'above': 1, 'right': 1, 'below': 1, 'left': 1 }
    

    maxheight: Setting maxheight can prevent the popup from exceeding the bottom of the screen. In vim 8.1, it is possible for popups to exceed the bottom of the screen. In vim 9.0, the problem has been fixed. For compatibility, maxheight should be explicitly set here.

    let maxheight = max( [ mousepos.row - 1, &lines - mousepos.row ] ) - above_below_reserve
    

    maxwidth: maxwidth is screen columns minus border and padding and sometimes the potential scrollbar.

    let maxwidth = &columns - left_right_reserve
    
    if popup_getpos( s:cursorhold_popup ).scrollbar
      call popup_setoptions( s:cursorhold_popup, { 'maxwidth': maxwidth - 1 } )
    endif
    

    minwidth: Setting minwidth can prevent the popup from getting wider or narrower during scrolling. The maximum line width in different pages of a popup might be different, so the width of the popup might change after scrolling down a page.

    let minwidth = min( [ len, maxwidth ] )
    

    line 1663: use popup_beval() to show the hover popup.

    let s:cursorhold_popup = popup_beval(
          \   lines,
          \   {
          \     'col'      : col,
          \     'wrap'     : wrap,
          \     'border'   : [ border['above'],  border['right'],  border['below'],  border['left'] ],
          \     'padding'  : [ padding['above'], padding['right'], padding['below'], padding['left'] ],
          \     'maxheight': maxheight,
          \     'maxwidth' : maxwidth,
          \     'minwidth' : minwidth,
          \     'close'    : 'click',
          \     'fixed'    : 0,
          \     'resize'   : 1,
          \     'drag'     : 1
          \   }
          \ )
    

    line 1685: use getbufvar( v:beval_bufnr, 'ycm_hover' ) instead of b:ycm_hover. The latter is related to the buffer/window where the vim cursor is.

    The effects of my code: image WPRLM`BX46QUB47Y%@V (XE image image

    1. toggling auto hover

    line 1703: this autocmd should be triggered only once.

    autocmd CursorMoved <buffer> ++once call s:EnableAutoHover()
    

    line 1712: add some mappings to enable/disable auto hover permanently.

    nnoremap <silent> <plug>(YCMHoverON) :<C-u>call <SID>EnableAutoHover()<CR>
    nnoremap <silent> <plug>(YCMHoverOFF) :<C-u>call <SID>DisableAutoHover()<CR>
    

    line 1714: the auto hover might cause an info popup to disappear in insert mode, so we should disable it before entering insert mode and enable it again after leaving insert mode.

    autocmd InsertEnter <buffer> silent call s:DisableAutoHover()
    autocmd InsertLeave <buffer> silent call s:EnableAutoHover()
    
    1. the info popup in insert mode

    line 1261: the info popup should not be shown if it is empty.

    if id && !empty( a:completion_item.info )
    

    line 1262: It is quite ugly to show the line number column in an info popup, so I hide the line number column in it. I also highlight the info popup as 'Pmenu' instead of 'PmenuSel' (the default, which seems too bright).

    The effects of the original code: _%$ B1O4$B0(X 7IO8DRIW6 I@SYX {G4YS_RZWQ}J%RW

    The effects of my code: OB8KFLPZVVERJ%UL0_$08@O O2(YV%IIP8(P2YR}H80A@IU

    Remaining problems

    1. I'm considering to let users choose the type of hovers by themselves through something like let g:ycm_hover_type = 'cursorhold/balloon'.
    2. Since ballooneval/balloonevalterm/balloonexpr are global options, they might override the settings by user or from other plugins, or be overridden by other settings.

    Why this change is necessary and useful

    This change provides more available arguments for commands like YcmCompleter. The new available arguments --line_num= and --column_num= enables the commands to be executed at any position. Without these two arguments, the commands can only be executed at cursor position.

    Issue Details

    Provide a clear description of the problem, including the following key questions:

    The function input descriptions will run off the screen if there are many inputs for a function.

    • What did you do?

    Include steps to reproduce here.

    1. In the .vimrc, I have

    let g:ycm_python_binary_path = '/usr/local/bin/python3' let g:ycm_path_to_python_interpreter='/usr/local/bin/python3' let g:ycm_autoclose_preview_window_after_insertion = 1

    1. Then open up a python script, test.py for example.
    2. import numpy
    3. Then do something like, time = numpy.linspace(
    4. The inputs of numpy.linspace will appear above but they will run off the screen so that you can not see all of the inputs. (https://imgur.com/a/RSyjzTN)

    Include description of a minimal test case, including any actual code required to reproduce the issue.

    If you made changes to vimrc_ycm_minimal, pase them here:

    <contents of ycm_vimrc_minimal>
    
    • What did you expect to happen?

    Include description of the expected behaviour. I expect the inputs to be presented in a way where they do not run off the screen.

    • What actually happened? The inputs ran off the screen

    Include description of the observed behaviour, including actual output, screenshots, etc. (https://imgur.com/a/RSyjzTN)

    Issue Details

    • Note:

    This bug only occurs when enabling a second plugin (vim-sleuth). I was unsure of whether to file the bug here or with the other plugin. I decided on here because the error output referenced ycm, but let me know if it should be filed elsewhere.

    • What did you do?
    1. vim -Nu /path/to/YCM/ycm_vimrc_minimal test.c
    2. Type a function like:
    void f()
    {
    }
    
    1. Go to closing curly bracket of function.
    2. O<ESC>i<TAB>
    3. Type a character.

    I added set foldmethod=indent and loaded the vim-sleuth plugin

    " windows default encoding is not supported
    set encoding=utf-8
    
    " If you using neovim and python isn't loading, copy your python setup from your
    " vimrc here:
    "
    " let g:python3_host_prog = '/path/to/python3/with/neovim/module'
    "
    " But remember that neovim is not officially supported, so please reproduce in
    " Vim.
    
    " Enable debugging
    let g:ycm_keep_logfiles = 1
    let g:ycm_log_level = 'debug'
    
    " If the base settings don't repro, paste your existing config for YCM only,
    " here:
    " let g:ycm_....
    
    set foldmethod=indent
    
    " Load YCM (only)
    let &rtp .= ',~/.vim/plugged/youcompleteme,~/.vim/plugged/vim-sleuth'
    filetype plugin indent on
    syn on
    
    • What did you expect to happen?

    Nothing.

    Issue Details

    As always, thanks for this amazing project!

    I'd like to propose to add a way to narrow down the specific Inlay hints being shown when enabled.

    For example I'd like to keep the Parameter Inlay Hints, while disabling the Type Inlay Hints ( wrt https://github.com/ycm-core/YouCompleteMe/blob/88efc6f6035e4c656e8791f3c3a8a4328a1634dc/python/ycm/inlay_hints.py#L25 ).

    For example via a config variable e.g.

    let g:ycm_inlay_hints_blacklist = {
          \ 'Type'      : 1,
          \ 'Parameter' : 1,
          \ 'Enum'      : 1,
          \}
    

    Thanks for the consideration!

    Issue Details

    Provide a clear description of the problem, including the following key questions:

    • What did you do?

    When running :YcmCompleter GetParent within a cpp file, I am seeing "ValueError: Supported commands are:..." which doesn't include GetParent. According to the readme, GetParent should be supported for cpp files though. GoToDeclaration and the rest are working

    Include steps to reproduce here.

    1. Open a cpp file with eg vim -Nu /path/to/YCM/vimrc_ycm_minimal main.cpp (I am using bazel + hedronvision compile commands generator to get a compile_commands.json, but the error will be present without any compile flags)
    2. Run :YcmCompleter GetParent
    3. Behold
