Anycomplete

The magic of Google Autocomplete while you're typing. Anywhere.

Installation

Anycomplete is an extension for Hammerspoon. Once Hammerspoon is installed (see install Hammerspoon below) you can run the following script to install Autocomplete.

$ curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nathancahill/Anycomplete/master/install.sh | bash

install.sh just clones this repository into ~/.hammerspoon, loads it into Hammerspoon and sets ⌃⌥⌘G as the default keybinding.

Manual installation

$ git clone https://github.com/nathancahill/anycomplete.git ~/.hammerspoon/anycomplete

To initialize, add to ~/.hammerspoon/init.lua (creating it if it does not exist):

local anycomplete = require "anycomplete/anycomplete"
anycomplete.registerDefaultBindings()

Alternatively, copy anycomplete.lua from this repository to whereever you keep other Hammerspoon modules and load it appropriately.

Reload the Hammerspoon config.

Install Hammerspoon

Hammerspoon can be installed using homebrew/caskroom.

$ brew cask install hammerspoon
$ open -a /Applications/Hammerspoon.app

Accessibility must be enabled for Anycomplete to work.

Usage

Trigger with the hotkey ⌃⌥⌘G. Once you start typing, suggestions will populate. They can be choosen with ⌘1-9 or by pressing the arrow keys and Enter. Pressing ⌘C copies the selected item to the clipboard.

The hotkey can be changed by passing in arguments to registerDefaultBindings call (in your ~/.hammerspoon/init.lua file) such as:

anycomplete.registerDefaultBindings({"cmd", "ctrl"}, 'L')

Warning

Google might block your IP address if you use this. See #26.

Privacy

No keystrokes are sent to Google until you trigger the hotkey and start typing. If you prefer DuckDuckGo, replace GOOGLE_ENDPOINT with: 'https://duckduckgo.com/ac/?q=%s' and the imap function with this:

choices = hs.fnutils.imap(results, function(result)
    return {
        ["text"] = result["phrase"],
    }
end)
