           |), except for the first element which is just the timestamp of the buffer.

       completions
           a : separated list of <text>|<docstring>|<menu text> candidates, except for the first

           the format of end of lines when writing a buffer, this is autodetected on load; values
           of this option assigned to the window scope are ignored

           define if the file should be written with an unicode byte order mark; values of this
           option assigned to the window scope are ignored

       incsearch bool
           execute search as it is typed

       aligntab bool

           automatically display possible completions when editing a prompt

       ignored_files regex
           filenames matching this regex won’t be considered as candidates on filename completion
           (except if the text being completed already matches it)

       disabled_hooks regex
           hooks whose group matches this regex won’t be executed. For example indentation hooks

       path str-list
           directories to search for gf command

       completers str-list
           completion engines to use for insert mode completion (they are tried in order until
           one generates candidates). Existing completers are:

           word=all, word=buffer
               which complete using words in all buffers (word=all) or only the current one
               (word=buffer)

           filename
               which tries to detect when a filename is being entered and provides completion

           associated with the current buffer on the filesystem.

       modelinefmt string
           A format string used to generate the mode line, that string is first expanded as a
           command line would be (expanding %...{...} strings), then markup tags are applied
           (c.f. the Expansions documentation page)

       ui_options
           colon separated list of key=value pairs that are forwarded to the user interface

               if yes or true, the terminal emulator title will be changed

           ncurses_status_on_top

               than at the bottom

               specify the nice assistant you get in info boxes, can be clippy (the default), cat

           ncurses_wheel_down_button, ncurses_wheel_up_button
               specify which button send for wheel down/up events

           ncurses_buffer_padding_str
               string that will be used to mark the end of the buffer

           ncurses_buffer_padding_type
               if set to fill, the padding string will fill the entire space between the end of
               the buffer and the bottom of the current window, if set to single the padding
               string will be inserted once at the end of the buffer. A value of off disables any
               kind of padding

                                                                                   KAK_OPTIONS(1)
