description
    A tiny and portable script (169 lines) to provide you YouCompleteMe like experience for buffer,
    dictionary and tags completion without installing heavy completion engines and building
    background servers.

What Is It ?

    Semantic completion is great, but sometimes, when you are coding in an obscure laguange
    which is lack of LSP support, or you are working in a temporary system and you don't want
    waste time to set up a heavyweight completion engine and build a background server.

    In these circumstances, vim's built-in completion system is good enough for you, it can
    collect keywords from buffers and dictionary or ctag files, but requires you to press <c-n> or
    <c-x><c-k> manually.

    This tiny little script will help you to trigger the completion menu when you have entered
    1 or 2 alphabets and provide you exact the same experience like YouCompleteMe:

Features:

    - Popup the completion menu automatically.
    - Tab or shift+TAB to cycle keywords, <c-e> to cancel.
    - Same experience like YouCompleteMe for buffer, dict and tags completion.
    - Green, everything is local to buffer, will not pollute your vim or disturb other plugins.
    - Capable to co-exist with other completion plugins.
    - No heavy engines, no need to build background servers.
    - Faster and more handy than the old famous AutoComplPop.
    - Portable, just a simple apc.vim script, easy to be distributed.
    - Only 169 lines, you can even copy it to your vimrc.
    - Convenience as a backup way for big completion plugins.
