Any idea if this plugin works in conjunction with
YouCompleteMe will use the available omnifunc as a fallback if
no semantic completer for the filetype is provided.
So, yes, it should work.
I looked a bit into YouCompleteMe to see if I can add a proper
semantic completer. It appears that semantic completers run on
the YCMD server rather then inside the Vim instance - which makes
writing a semantic completer infeasible.
The semantic completer will need to be able to read the import
paths and to invoke DCD. These two functionalities are
implemented in Dutyl with VimScript - but to access these
implementations it'll need to some interface to call these
functions. I don't know if the YCDM-Vim interaction supports the
server calling the client, or if Vim's own server-client
mechanism can be used for it(which will require extra
configuration), but at any rate it doesn't make much sense to use
the completion server when the work is done in the Vim instance.
Another option is to reimplement that functionality in Python -
but if the the import paths gathering, the DCD invokation, and
the glue code that connects them are all reimplemented there is
no point in making this part of Dutyl...
Also note that Dutyl sends the content of the current buffer to
DCD, not the file saved on disc. This diffidently requires access
to the Vim instance, and changing it is not an option unless you
want to have to save before you autocomplete.
