I wrote some months ago about my Vim configuration. As I am always experimenting, I switched from Pathogen to Vundle to manage my plugins (if you follow my gitorious repository you already noticed that).
As I develop mainly Django web applications, my
~/.vimrc file is highly biased towards python, and pythonistas out there know better than me that the de-facto autocompletion library for python is the awesome Jedi.
This is a quick post just to tell that I made a (only local, for now) branch in my git repository to test if/how YCM works for me.
The first impression of use is good. I’m not 100% convinced to definitely switch away from jedi-vim because YCM needs a compiled library (coded in C++), so my
~/.vim/bundle/ directory isn’t as clean as before. But this drawback is also its strong point, because it makes YCM much faster than jedi-vim.
So, I think I’ll stick a couple of weeks with YCM and then I’ll decide.
