REPLCompletions

Completions for your Julia REPL

Readme

REPLCompletions.jl

Tab completion for your Julia REPL.

Possible completions

Julia

  • [x] Names of variables and functions defined or imported to the global scope.
  • [ ] Names of variables and functions defined in the current cell/string.
  • [ ] Methods of a function if inside a function call.
  • [ ] Importable modules after using \t
  • [ ] Help for function if pos is at the beginning of a function call

Shell

  • [x] Accessible command line programs
  • [ ] Arguments for common programs (like git pull, push, commit, checkout)

The interface

The interface is very simple. There are two exported methods provided:

    completions(string,pos)
    shell_completions(string,pos)

The former provides completion of julia expression while the latter provides completion of julia shell syntax (; at the standard REPL or inside backticks).

Both functions have the same return format:

    results, range = completions(string,pos)

The first return value is an array of possible completions, while the second return value is a range specifying the part of the string that was matched. In particular this means that to execute a completion, you should replace string[range] by completion[i] for some i.
