Actual calltip support (shown when typing function arguments) for more languages is on the TODO list, but is not a high priority at the moment (ideally someone familiar with each language and C would extend the current parsers).
Is there not any library that can be build upon?
There is at least one: ctags And we are using this one. But it only supports (at the moment) calltips for C-like filetypes.
I still don't know how other python IDEs succeed in providing this kind of autocompletion for any module that one imports.
I assume they are parsing the python modules in some way and extract the necessary information. (this is only a guess without any knowledge)
