AllAutocomplete.wordListFiles: Array of strings that represent path to files that behave as if they are always open. These can be used as stores for headers, word lists etc. for autocomplete. Absolute paths can be used here or relative paths to the folder(s) which form the workspace root.
AllAutocomplete.nonContributingLanguages List of languages that do not contribute words but can consume words from the autocomplete list.
AllAutocomplete.nonContributingToSelfLanguages List of languages that do not supply word lists to the files of the same language but can consume words from All Autocomplete as well as supply word lists to other files.
AllAutocomplete.dontContributeToSelf Disables supplying word lists to files of the same language. Equivalent to putting all languages in AllAutocomplete.nonContributingToSelfLanguages.
Suggestions in comments/strings
Autocomplete can provide suggestions within suggestions/strings. To get those, please enable the following settings:
// Controls whether suggestions should automatically show up while typing.
If you feel that the whitespace splitter is wrong in some language, please report a github issue or better a pull request with the correct regex in package.json.
The emmet plugin takes over the special character # in CSS and therefore that cannot be auto-completed.
When using real-time mode by setting AllAutocomplete.showCurrentDocument = true, the plugin tries to update the index on each addition/deletion.
When AllAutocomplete.showCurrentDocument = false, the index updates itself on each change to focussed editor.
When AllAutocomplete.updateOnlyOnSave = true, the index is updated only on save and open/close of documents.
AllAutocomplete.maxItemsInSingleList controls the number of items populating the autocomplete list.
AllAutocomplete.maxLines control the number of lines to read in a document. Longer documents can be ignored.
