One of my favorite features of Sublime Text was having an autocomplete menu pop up to help complete words that were previously written in the current file or files that I had open.

We’re going to go over how to get that set up in Vim. We’ll be using 1 very light weight plugin to get the menu to pop up automatically but everything else is already built into Vim.

The cool thing about this set up is that you don’t need to use any language servers which means it will work while working with any file type. This is very handy for programming, but also writing too. Especially when combined with Vim snippets.
