I'm using alchemist.el for editing Elixir code and have some difficulties to set it work properly with company-mode's completion. When I type (e.g): List.| I get Company: An error occurred in auto-begin End of file during parsing.
Alchemist's README on GitHub say Alchemist enables a company-mode elixir backend by default if company-mode is installed.
I guess that company backend somehow is not properly provided or I have some conflicts in configuration.
Does anyone have experience with this or have advice on how to debug this to see what is wrong or what is proper configuration?

  • You should file a bug in Alchemist.

Please following the steps below

  • Please update to the current Alchemist version 1.4.0
  • Read the section about the requirements on the README

If you then have still problems, please call me on the #elixir IRC channel, nickname is tonini

Thanks for the report and asking
