Are you sure you executed the code? I just tried: (push '(org-tags-view . completing-read-default) ivy-completing-read-handlers-alist) and it worked as expected. Responding to the comment: Indeed when calling it from org-agenda it does not work. As you supposed, this is because this-command is changed to org-agenda. As you probably don't want affect ...

I recommend ido-mode. It changes how completing-read works, adding an inline display of possible matches, and adding several extra keyboard commands for manipulating the list. There are quite a lot of them, but the one I use most frequently is probably C-s, which cycles the current list of matches so that the next one is selected. In your example, C-x b sh ...

Yes, vanilla Emacs is weak/broken wrt option completion-ignored-extensions. If you use Icicles there is no such problem. When a file name is ignored it is ignored completely; it is not shown in *Completions*. And in Icicles you can toggle this ignoring off or on at any time during completion, using C-. in the minibuffer. See Icicles - File-Name ...

Your completion-function is a function, but not a proper completion table (it does not obey all the expected behavior). I recommend you use completion-table-dynamic to build a proper completion table function from a function that simply lists all the possible completions. E.g. (defun my-completion-function (prefix) ;; You can just ignore the prefix '("...

Use icomplete-mode - the builtin incremental minibuffer completion mode. It continuously displays a list of possible completions as soon as you type in minibuffer. Then M-x oc-m and C-j to accept completion candidate.

You can try (setq swiper-stay-on-quit t). When you hit C-g you'll be redirected to the location selected by swiper.

What troubles me here is that the totally nebulous computation that I removed did not affect anything. And for a reason. The temp-buffer-max-height variable does not have any effect unless another variable, namely temp-buffer-resize-mode, is set to t. Both variables are customizable. This is kind of documented with the temp-buffer-max-height variable help: ...

This answer is for using command icicle-find-file-absolute, which is similar in most regards to icicle-locate. But icicle-locate uses a prefix arg differently, passing it to system-command locate. So icicle-locate doesn't handle the use of a prefix arg to make multi-completion candidates include also a last modification-date middle component. (Command ...

Insert below code into ~/.emacs to enable company-ispell in comment, (defun my-in-comment-p (pos) "Check whether the code at POS is comment by comparing font face." (let* ((fontfaces (get-text-property pos 'face))) (if (not (listp fontfaces)) (setq fontfaces (list fontfaces))) (delq nil (mapcar #'(lambda (f) ...

(defconst sample-completions '(("a" "a" "ɑ" "æ" "ɐ" "ɑ̃") ("f" "o" "r"))) (defun company-sample-backend (command &optional arg &rest ignored) (interactive (list 'interactive)) (case command (interactive (company-begin-backend 'company-sample-backend)) (prefix (and (eq major-mode 'fundamental-mode) (company-grab-symbol))) (...

You can get something like this with ivy, but you might have to write some code to get exactly what you want. Here, I get the files in the current directory, and construct a list of candidates that looks like "filename | directory". If you want them on separate lines, replace | with \n. Then you use ivy-read to get completion. If you want a buffer where you ...

Yes: just put (savehist-mode 1) in your ~/.emacs and that should do the trick. [ Tho not quite in the way you describe: c will still not be among the completion candidates. But it will be in your history and hence accessible via M-p, M-s, ... ]

I'm not really sure what you're trying to do, but maybe this will help: (defun foo () "..." (interactive) (minibuffer-with-setup-hook #'minibuffer-complete (call-interactively #'imenu))) (global-set-key (kbd "<f4>") 'foo)

Jumping to a bookmark with Bookmark+ is like doing the same with vanilla Emacs. Completion of a bookmark name uses standard Emacs function completing-read to read the name. This means that you either have to use a key (e.g. TAB) to initiate completion, or you have to use some completion library that lets you make completing-read initiate completion ...

Here is my code. Yes the documentation is awful for phpactor and it takes some digging. I have this currently and it shows how to use transients and bind them to a key in php-mode. Hopefully useful to someone. (use-package transient :ensure t) (use-package phpactor :ensure t) (use-package company-phpactor :ensure t) (use-package php-mode ...
