Today I uninstalled YouCompleteMe, a vim plugin. I used it for about 8 months, but it added significant pain to my software upgrading process. Once it was fully set up, it was somewhat helpful and very sexy. That sexiness just wasn’t worth the cost, though.

The author cites stability and a faster experience for using a newer version of MacVim, but his system Python requirement would break the Homebrew install of Git.

This package feels like a software prima donna. Remind me to be cognizant of this with my future work.
