I wrote this script to learn how completing-read’s complex arguments works. Compared to other clients it’s quite limited; but thanks to packages like Vertico and Orderless, it works quite well for my use cases.

  • To install it on emacs 29 paste this into a scratch buffer and evaluate it:

    (package-vc-install
      '(minimpc :url "https://codeberg.org/nmtake/minimpc.el.git"))
    

    And put this in your init.el: (require 'minimpc)

    You don’t need Vertico or Orderless. I’m using emacs’ built-in completion–it works fine.

      Thank you for trying the package! I completely forgot to mention require in README, and didn’t know package-vc-install. I’ll add it to README later.

      I’m using emacs’ built-in completion–it works fine.

      I hope it works on other packages like helm or ivy too.
