Announcement - corfu-candidate-overlay package first public release

posted on 2023-05-19

Short announcement of the general availability of my small Emacs package corfu-candidate-overlay that provides an as-you-type overlay showing first corfu.el auto-suggestion candidate.

How it looks while using:

Overlay during typing showing first auto-completion candidate when there are more than one (horizontal bar is the cursor):


Overlay showing auto-completion candidate when there is only one available (so invoking completion-at-point will complete without showing the completion menu):


Package works only with corfu-auto disabled (i.e. set to nil) and triggering of the corfu’s suggestions popup manually.

You can follow installation instructions in the readme. Please make sure to read performance considerations section as well.

Happy hacking!
