Getting full JS autocompletion under Sublime Text


I just installed the Sublime Text under Windows Vista, and even following the advice given in this post, namely to explicitly set View > Syntax > JavaScript > JavaScript, I only see suggestions based on what I have previously typed. I even installed the SublimeCodeIntel plug-in, to no avail.

As I understand it, the moment I write "pars" I should get the "parseFloat" and "parseInt" options, as in the Chrome developer tools, right?

The Best Answer is


Suggestions are (basically) based on the text in the current open file and any snippets or completions you have defined (ref). If you want more text suggestions, I'd recommend:

As a side note, I'd really recommend installing Package control to take full advantage of the Sublime community. Some of the options above use Package control. I'd also highly recommend the tutsplus Sublime tutorial videos, which include all sorts of information about improving your efficiency when using Sublime.

Ternjs is a new alternative for getting JS autocompletion.

Sublime Plugin

The most well-maintained Tern plugin for Sublime Text is called 'tern_for_sublime'

There is also an older plugin called 'TernJS'. It is unmaintained and contains several performance related bugs, that cause Sublime Text to crash, so avoid that.
