Hi I cannot find the Auto Complete plugin for Salesforce IDE which I have installed in Eclipse. Version: Kepler Service Release 2

  • Since someone commented on Mavensmate/Sublime Text as an alternative, I'll also mention that in the next week or so I'll be releasing a new tool for Force.com development, Illuminated Cloud, a plugin for IntelliJ IDEA that includes extensive code completion as well as many other features. It's not freeware or open source but will be available for a very competitive price and includes a free 30-day evaluation. Commented Jun 11, 2015 at 16:50

It looks like it might be coming soon according to the idea here.

The developer console now has autocompletion for Apex code, in addition to its long tradition of autocomplete for Visualforce. Can I get a huzzah from the crowd?

We will add this to the IDE plugin as part of our refactoring to utilize the Tooling API in the coming year.

It looks like there is a visualforce plug in here, but haven't tried it out.

Something else I haven't tried but it looks like auto-complete is part of the beta install, Changes in Force.com IDE Beta Version and Downloading the Beta Version of the Force.com IDE.

  • Hi Jenny, Tried the Rich VisualForce Editor plugin that you are talking about but it gives an error.

  • @ZarqIqbal updated my answer, it looks like the beta version has that capability now.

    Thanks a lot Jenny. That worked for me! I just hope that they bring the auto complete for VF tags soon too!

It's been broken for quite a while now (link)

Personally, I use Mavensmate with Sublime Text 3 for day to day development.

  • No third party plugins that work with Eclipse? Was kind of hoping to find a solution inside Eclipse (Something I'm comfortable with)

    Nothing that works with the Force.com IDE. But if you want to contribute, the IDE is open source github.com/forcedotcom/idecore Commented Jun 11, 2015 at 10:49
