Is there any way when using the YouCompleteMe vim extension to jump to the next point in the file with an error? I find myself just scrolling through the page until I find the error highlight, but there must be a better way to do it.

If you let g:ycm_always_populate_location_list = 1, YouCompleteMe will populate vims location list with new diagnostic data. You can jump through the entries in that list with :lnext and :lprevious. You can read more about the location list in the documentation of the quickfix feature (:h location-list or use the online version).

    (also, for others, :ln and :lp for short!) :D

    :ln is not mapped afaik, it should be :lne. vimdoc.sourceforge.net/htmldoc/quickfix.html Jan 11, 2017 at 8:58

  • Sorry, my bad. The issue was actually that :lnext wouldn't move cursor if there's a single error, but with :ll it works.
