I used oh-my-zsh for a while and found one of its nice features, where I could complete my command using up and down arrow keys.

I want to recreate the feature, and even browsed it source code and this is what I have so far: https://termbin.com/vlaj in my ~/.zshrc. Say my history is like this:

1 nvim hello-word.sh

2 nvim fibonacci.c

3 nvim cmatrix.py

Now if i had $ nvim he and i press up arrow key, it becomes nvim cmatrix.py , and not nvim hello-word.sh as it would in oh-my-zsh. I found this to be helpful, but it doesn't fix it: https://github.com/ohmyzsh/ohmyzsh/issues/1720


Does this plugin fulfill your need?
