Fix Ctrl-P indexing in Vim/NeoVim
I started using NeoVim a year ago and I siwtch between it and Visual Studio Code quite often. I use NeoVim mostly when I do text editing. I use it almost exclusively when writing blog articles, notes or doing research.
In the past couple of weeks, whenever I tried to use Ctrl-P to find an article and edit it, it seemed like
it could not find anything in my
posts directory. I tried other directories and had the same behavior.
This is a short post in which I’d like to share the solution to my problem, as many others might have the same issue.
At first I thought there was a Python issue because I’m using
ctrlp_match_func as it is supposed to make things fast.
This was fuelled by the fact that YouCompleteMe was complaining about Python support.
Finally, today I found this comment of the original plugin author, on an issue similar to mine.
As far as my problem goes, all I had to do was to run
:CtrlPClearAllCaches and allow the plugin to re-index the projects I was working on, at startup.
Hope it helps!
