# Autocompletion config for YouCompleteMe in Chromium.
# 1. Install YCM []
# (Googlers should check out [go/ycm])
# 2. Create a symbolic link to this file called in the
# directory above your Chromium checkout (i.e. next to your .gclient file).
# cd src
# ln -rs tools/vim/ ../
# 3. (optional) Whitelist the from step #2 by adding the
# following to your .vimrc:
# let g:ycm_extra_conf_globlist=['<path to>']
# You can also add other files you want to use to this
# list to prevent excessive prompting each time you visit a directory
# covered by a config file.
# 4. Profit
# Usage notes:
# * You must use ninja & clang to build Chromium.
# * You must have built Chromium recently.
# Hacking notes:
# * The purpose of this script is to construct an accurate enough command line
# for YCM to pass to clang so it can build and extract the symbols.
# * Right now, we only pull the -I and -D flags. That seems to be sufficient
# for everything I've used it for.
# * That whole ninja & clang thing? We could support other configs if someone
# were willing to write the correct commands and a parser.
# * This has only been tested on Linux and macOS.
