auto-argcomplete 0.9.7

Auto argument completion for script with argparse.

auto-argcomplete is automatic shell completion generator for script which uses argparse.

The behavior is like:

$ python example/ <TAB>
$ python example/ --
--dry-run   --help      --kick-off  --module

If you’re using zsh:

% python example/ --
--dry-run   -- display what to do
--help      -- show this help message and exit
--module    -- specify module name

example/ is:

import argparse

parser = argparse.ArgumentParser()
parser.add_argument('-m', '--module', help='specify module name')
parser.add_argument('-n', '--dry-run', help='display what to do')
parser.add_argument('-k', '--kick-off')

Nothing to import in the script! :smile:

auto-argcomplete can automatically understand the output of --help option, so automatically supports all script which use argparse.


$ pip install auto-argcomplete


$ nosetests -v auto_argcomplete
