Re: [O] Refiling Completion Systems

the built-in ido completion is likely mostly redundant and that is i
think mostly why it was removed.  [ooh, disclaimers.]

to get your ido back, you can install ido-hacks, which will

  1] make ido work in all sorts of places including refile
  2] speed up ido by an enormous amount

you might need to make sure you have the right version.

there is also something like ido-everywhere, but idk if it has the
speeding up feature or whether it does ido in the same places.

alternatively, you can try helm [old, huge, different usage] or ivy
[new, fast].  icicles is not as popular.

i think both helm and ivy have c-spc ability or the equivalent.

ivy is the most like ido of the popular non-ido.


i use ido with ido-hacks and ido-clever-match.  the last one sorts
choices beautifully.  i get annoyed with different sort orders.

i might switch to ivy in the future if it can provide the same sort
order as ido-clever-match.  it provides options, but not that one.

it has been said that flx is a nice sorting option and that ivy can
provide it, but it was too slow last time i tried it.  idk if ivy
speeds flx up.  idk if it is close enough to ido-clever-match for me.
