nvim-cmp Integration

If nvim-mdlink.cmp is true, then the mdlink completion source will be registered in nvim-cmp is available (i.e. if nvim-cmp has already been loaded by your plugin manager). If nvim-mdlink is loaded before nvim-cmp, then you will need to manually register the completion source in the configuration for nvim-cmp, by using the following snippet.

local has_mdlink, mdlink = pcall(require, "nvim-mdlink.cmp")
if has_mdlink then

Then you are able to make use the the mdlink completion source in your nvim-cmp configuration.

require('cmp').setup {
  sources = {
    { name = 'mdlink' }
