However, for the life of me, I cannot get it to work.
I am new to emacs, so I don’t really know what I am doing. But I tried a few different permutations like:
(add-hook 'after-init-hook 'global-company-mode) (with-eval-after-load 'company (add-to-list 'company-backends 'company-math-symbols-unicode 'company-latex-commands))
(defun my-julia-mode-setup () (setq-local company-backends (append '((company-math-symbols-unicode)) company-backends))) (add-hook 'julia-mode-hook 'my-julia-mode-setup)
based on what I’ve read online.
I do not have a mental model of what is going on.
I can confirm that company-mode is on with
M-x company-mode. I also tried to check the variables with
M-x customize-variable RET company-backends, and see that the end of the list says
User defined: company-math-symbols-unicode
company-math-symbols-unicode is in a text-box.
However, there does not seem to be any sort of auto-completion. For example, typing
\alpha and then hitting [TAB] does nothing at all.
What am I missing?
