Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki

This extensions adds a REST resource and since we don't support adding REST resources dynamically yet, you'll need to restart your wiki for it to be active.

Release Notes


  • Using CodeMirror 5.1's showHint addon instead of the old CodeMirror 2.x simpleHint addon that was removed from CodeMirror but we were still bundling, since the new addon has the features we were manually adding to the old one
  • Rewrote the Autocompletion UI parts using RequireJS modules
    Other fixed Jira issues:


  • Autocompletion of nested method calls
  • Add highlighting and completions for velocity for the XWikiSkin object editor


Dependencies for this extension (org.xwiki.contrib.editortool:editor-tool-autocomplete-ui 4.4):
