[IPython-dev] filename completion - anyone working on it?
Tue Oct 26 08:31:56 CDT 2010
I am constantly bugged by filename completion in IPython. To be specific,
there are two cases that maybe need to be considered separately:
1) Completion of filenames in arguments to IPython magics, e.g. %run foo<tab>
2) Completion of filenames in strings, i.e. filename = "../subdir/bar<tab>"
In the second case, I don't want to have completions of other types (i.e.
variable/function names), and in both cases I want filenames with spaces to be
The failure w.r.t. the latter is a serious bug for me, so I'd like to ask if
anybody is working on the relevant code ATM, and if not, which hints you
want/can give me for fixing this.
Have a nice day,
