The following is a brief guide to using Kite in its default configuration.
Hover (Python only)
Hover your mouse cursor over a symbol to view a short summary of what the symbol represents.
If the built-in
show_definition preference is enabled, Kite will show you the definitions and references found in the
Sublime index as usual.
Documentation (Python only)
Click on the
Definitions (Python only)
Def link is available in the hover popup, clicking on it will jump to the definition of the symbol.
Function Signatures (Python only)
When you call a function in Python, Kite will show you the arguments required to call it.
Kite also shows you
How others used this function, which are the most popular calling patterns inferred from all the
open-source Python code on the internet.
Commands and Keyboard Shortcuts
In case you prefer to not use the mouse, most of Kite's features can be triggered from the command palette.
Furthermore, Kite comes with the following default keyboard shortcuts:
||Show the hover popup at your current cursor position|
||Show documentation in the Copilot|
||Show the function signature panel|
||Show/hide keyword arguments (when function signature panel is shown)|
||Show/hide popular calling patterns (when function signature panel is shown)|
You can change Kite's settings by clicking on
Package Settings, then
Kite. Alternatively, you can
access the preferences files from the command palette using
Kite: Package Settings. The default preferences file should
be self documenting.
- On Sublime 3200+, the function signature UI is truncated in some situations. (Issue)
