  • Automatically add use statement of current completed word. Also added plugin command of this action.
  • The plugin is extensible so that framework specific autocomplete suggestion(for example facades in laravel, DIC services in Symfony2 frameworks) is possible. Checkout phpcomplete-extended-symfony and phpcomplete-extended-laravel for the implementation.
