You can control whether tab-completion shows the single and double-underscore
prefixed attributes of objects. This is the relevant section in the
# (iii) readline_omit__names: normally hitting <tab> after a '.' in a name
# will complete all attributes of an object, including all the special methods
# whose names start with single or double underscores (like __getitem__ or
# This variable allows you to control this completion behavior:
# readline_omit__names 1 -> completion will omit showing any names starting
# with two __, but it will still show names starting with one _.
# readline_omit__names 2 -> completion will omit all names beginning with one
# _ (which obviously means filtering out the double __ ones).
# Even when this option is set, you can still see those names by explicitly
# typing a _ after the period and hitting <tab>: 'name._<tab>' will always
# complete attribute names starting with '_'.
# This option is off by default so that new users see all attributes of any
# objects they are dealing with.
See what value you have for that, and set it to something you like. Note that
you can still see the underscored names regardless of this setting if you type
a single underscore yourself, and THEN hit tab:
In : a='hi'
In : a.<TAB>
a.capitalize a.expandtabs a.islower a.lower a.rstrip a.title
a.center a.find a.isspace a.lstrip a.split
In : a._<TAB>
a.__add__ a.__getattribute__ a.__le__ a.__reduce__
a.__class__ a.__getitem__ a.__len__ a.__reduce_ex__
At runtime, you can see your whole ipython config state by simply typing %config.
