APT tabcomplete support for the Xonsh shell

Project description

xonsh-apt-tabcomplete - APT tab completion for the Xonsh shell

Installing

Installation is done the normal way for setuptools-based projects:

python setup.py install

You can also use pip, of course:

pip install xonsh-apt-tabcomplete

Note that in the specific case of Xonsh, make sure you use your Python 3 executable to run setup.py, since as of this writing that’s all Xonsh supports.

Next, you’ll have to add a line to your .xonshrc file to load the plugin:

xontrib load apt_tabcomplete

If you have the bash completer installed, then you should also add the following lines to ensure that apt_tabcomplete is loaded before the bash completer:

completer remove auto_apt
completer add auto_apt apt_completer "<bash"

Reload your shell, and you’re good to go.

Usage

Tabcomplete works the way you’d expect when using apt. Just hit tab when you’d like to see what packages have a name starting with what you’ve typed so far. Currently just the install/remove commands for apt-get and the search command for apt-cache are supported (with apt-get remove only tabcompleting to installed packages), but I am open to adding more functionality upon request.

Known issues

You may have to hit tab twice to get the plugin to autocomplete. I’m still not sure why this is, unfortunately.
