There's no need for a regex or adding more
complexity. Entering the characters is just a current hack/workaround.
What we would have to add is support to support auto-completion at any
position after the specified delay.

Good point....would an exclusion string or
RegExp work ?
Perhaps it's irrelevant; the concept of content
assist 'trigger' sounds like it's language specific (in more ways than
one...;-). Is there an LSP concept for this ? To get the best experience
we need to have as much context as possible to filter / rank the results

Just for my interest do you know how close
preference change approach comes to mimicking IJ ?

What if I’m using Unicode characters in
my identifiers, do I have to enter all 32000? Sorry, that workaround is
a bit silly. And it sounds like there are a lot of issues to solve before
we even get there anyway.
For at least some editors (java) this can
be controlled through preferences...Preferences->Java->Editor->content
assist has a value called 'Auto-activation triggers for java'. it's defaults
to '.' but if you change it to 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ.'
then it'll always invoke content assist (much closer to the IJ feel).

IJ for Java development. Auto content-assist is a must-have nowadays. -- Mickael Istria Eclipse developer for Red
