When starting a django application using
python manage.py shell, I get an InteractiveConsole shell – I can use tab completion, etc.
Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Apr 15 2008, 22:57:26) [GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Inc. build 5465)] on darwin Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. (InteractiveConsole)
When just starting a python interpreter using
python, it doesn’t offer tab completion.
Can someone tell me what django is doing to give me an interactive console, or what I need to do to start an interactive console without a django app?
Now we will see solution for issue: How do I add tab completion to the Python shell?
I may have found a way to do it.
Create a file .pythonrc
# ~/.pythonrc # enable syntax completion try: import readline except ImportError: print("Module readline not available.") else: import rlcompleter readline.parse_and_bind("tab: complete")
then in your .bashrc file, add
That seems to work.
