I've set up auto-complete on emacs to display completion candidates, and it seems to be working well so far. I'm finding the constant display (and changes in display) distracting when I type, and I would like to get auto-complete to show completion candidates only when I press a key, preferably the tab key.
Can this be done? Here's my current configuration (including yasnippet, which I want to respond to the tab keypress first):
(use-package yasnippet :ensure t :config (yas-global-mode 1) :pin gnu ) (use-package auto-complete :ensure t :config (progn (require 'auto-complete-config) (add-to-list 'ac-dictionary-directories "~/.emacs.d/ac-dict") (ac-config-default) (ac-set-trigger-key "TAB") (ac-set-trigger-key "<tab>")) :pin melpa )
This shows completion candidates continuously.
